London Reclaimed Brick Merchants has added three Renault Trucks 26-tonne Range D26 Wide 6x2 R320 E6 models to its fleet.
The vehicles, supplied through Renault Trucks London on a five-year contract hire agreement with BRS, replace three other trucks and will be used to transport reclaim bricks from demolition sites across London and surrounding areas to the company’s north west London and Buckinghamshire depots.
They are fitted with Palfinger PK13001A cranes.
Stuart Wilbraham, transport manager for London Reclaimed Brick Merchants, said: “Renault Trucks offered the best overall deal including the contract hire arrangement and outstanding vehicle performance.
"Our trucks spend most of their time on challenging London roads and accessing building sites, so ground clearance and manoeuvrability are crucial.
"The Range D allows us to go pretty much anywhere in London and the vehicle’s rear steer is perfect for helping around corners in the back streets.”
The new Range Ds are fitted with a whole vehicle type approved Transloader platform body, plus FORS side view camera system and detachable fall arrest.
Wilbraham added: “Safety is paramount when driving in London and both the Range Ds and Transloader bodies have been designed to exceed the current FORS legislation with a comprehensive array of safety features including the camera and video recording system, special mirrors as well as vision glass in the passenger door so the driver can see the nearside clearly.”
