Parsons adds first Renault Trucks T High to fleet

07 December 2023 #Truck

Exeter’s Parsons Nationwide Distribution has added the first Renault Trucks T520 High 6×2 pusher tractor unit to its fleet citing the vehicle’s high specification as key to the deal.

The new 13 litre T520 High, with a maximum torque of 2550Nm, is coupled to Renault Trucks’ Optidriver AT2612F gearbox with automated clutch.

Equipped with walking floor/bulk tip equipment, the truck features optional extras such as front air suspension, Alcoa Dura-Bright aluminium wheels, fixed roof and side deflectors.

Further enhancements inside the cab include air conditioning, 40L fridge, heated and ventilated seats, luxury insulated curtains and leather steering wheel.

The T520 High, purchased from Sparks Commercial Services in Exeter, joins the haulier’s 59-strong mixed fleet on bulk tipper work across the UK.

It has been supplied on a Renault Trucks Start and Drive Excellence Contract – the most extensive repair and maintenance contract on offer – with all work carried out at Sparks Commercial Services’ Exeter depot.

Dale Worsley, Parsons Nationwide Distribution’s Transport Manager, said: “Keeping our driver happy was a major consideration in choosing the new vehicle and the spacious cab and optional extras we’ve specified ensure the driver has everything he needs to be comfortable out on the road.

“We wanted the most comprehensive repair and maintenance contract to ensure we are on top of any costs and won’t be hit with any unforeseen bills.

“It’s also reassuring to know that the truck is being maintained with genuine Renault Trucks parts and by the highly professional team at Sparks, who are located just up the road, from us.”
