Ridgway Rentals adds 70-tonne Renault Trucks to fleet

20 October 2022 #Truck

Plant hire company Ridgway Rentals has taken delivery of two new 70-tonne Renault Trucks T520 tractors, with reliability and driver appeal cited as the key reasons.

The 6×2 tag axle trucks have been added as replacement vehicles within its 10-strong fleet, mostly made up of Renault Trucks, and will be used to move heavy plant machinery such as excavators, bulldozers and dump trucks across the UK.

The vehicles, supplied by Renault Truck Commercials, are fitted with the ATO 2612F gearbox, reinforced for heavy duty use (XTREM), with automatic clutch.

Optional extras specified include Alcoa brushed matt aluminium wheels, four-point cab air suspension with ride-height control system, roof mounted twin air horns, comfort air conditioning and fridge.

There are also one-touch electric windows, leather steering wheel and ROADPAD+.

Rob Jones, Director of Ridgway Rentals, said: “With an increased demand for our services, we are extremely busy. The new vehicles have been brought in to replace older stock and to ensure that we have the very best fleet to meet our customer’s needs.

“We also have our local Renault Trucks dealer, Perrys of Gobowen, on our doorstep so that repair and maintenance is stress-free.

“We find Renault Trucks has a well-deserved reputation for reliability and our drivers are big fans. The trucks are out on the road four nights a week and they say driving the T520s is an absolute pleasure; the cab is more comfortable and the bed is better.”
