Leading Highlands’ haulier Baillie Brothers (Contractors) Ltd has chosen the new Euro-6 Renault Trucks Range C to bolster its services in the challenging environment of the West Coast and north of Scotland.

Joining Baillie Brothers’ 27-strong fleet, more than half of which is now populated by Renault Trucks, the 32-tonne Range C430 8×4 is fitted with an Atlas 135.2 crane. The body of the vehicle is built by PMH Coachbuilders, near Glasgow.

The new Range C has been put straight to work, delivering blocks for a local quarry.

Baillie Brothers’ Director, Kenny Baillie, said, “We have worked with Renault Trucks for many years and the vehicles are very well suited to our business – the Range C is reliable and robust, yet light.

“Its increased cab space, multiple storage areas and tasteful interiors offer a really comfortable life on board. Our driver particularly likes the automated gearbox, which is making his job much easier and more enjoyable.

“Obviously fuel consumption is important to the profitability of our business and this is improving all the time with the Range C as the engine beds in. We are getting, on average, 7.8mpg which is very impressive for a new vehicle on this hilly and hard-going terrain.”

Baillie Brothers (Contractors) Ltd was established in 1958 and is now located in Elgin, Moray. It provides haulage services throughout the Highlands, Moray and Aberdeenshire as well as across the UK.
