Wilson McCurdy Jnr Haulage takes first Renault truck

19 January 2023 #Truck

Ballymena-based Wilson McCurdy Jnr Haulage has added its first ever Renault truck to its fleet, citing new model updates and exceptional customer service as key to its decision.

The new T520 High 6×2 pusher, from dealer Diamond Trucks, is equipped with the Renault Trucks 13 litre DTI engine, delivering maximum power of 382kw and maximum torque of 2550 Nm.

Behind this is Renault Trucks’s Optidriver AT 2612F gearbox with automatic clutch. Optional extras include Alcoa Dura-Bright aluminium wheels, roof-mounted twin air horns and the cab is finished in red with matching bumper corners, centre and steps.

The T520 High’s cab interior has been specified with optional extras for the driver’s comfort including 40L fridge, heated seat, insulated cab curtains, leather steering wheel and air conditioning.

It joins the Wilson McCurdy Jnr fleet of seven on general haulage with regular runs out of Cork, Limerick and Kerry then on across Ireland and the UK.

Before the purchase, the haulier contacted Diamond Trucks in Mallusk and arranged to try a T480 demo which performed very well.

Wilson McCurdy Junior, Director, said: “We especially liked the new Evolution model, and I was particularly impressed with the updated cab shape, increased internal storage, more comfortable bunk, an improved steering column as well as a revised honeycomb grill and new LED headlights.

“We were impressed by the team at Diamond Trucks, and their down-to-earth approach and having only had a two-year warranty with another manufacturer, the comprehensive four year repair and maintenance contract from Renault Trucks sealed the deal.”
