Alien See Concrete Benefits With Renault Trucks' Tridem

Alien Concrete & Transport has taken delivery of the UK s first Renault Trucks 32-tonne Range C430 tridem 8×4, fitted with and Renault Trucks Day & Night cab.

The Cheadle, Greater Manchester-based contractor s new truck has been mounted with a 9m Putzmeister concrete mixer body and joins its mixed fleet of 10 six- and eight-wheelers, which already includes a conventional 32-tonne Range C430 8×4.

According to Alien managing director Keith Wiles, the tridem configuration, with its lifting and steering rear axle, improves handling in tight access locations often encountered on construction sites.

It is also useful for working on- and off-road, offering a much tighter turning circle than conventional eight-wheelers, and so saving time when manoeuvring while also enabling greater payloads than alternative six-wheelers.

We need good versatility on site, and in tight spaces our standard eight-wheelers can struggle, but the Range C tridem allows us to run a larger capacity drum with all the manoeuvrability of a 6×4 to places not normally accessible with an eight-wheeler, confirms Wiles.

Beyond that, Wiles cites reliability and robustness as key to the decision to go with Renault Trucks for construction-related project work.

If a truck is off the road for any reason, it s a cost to me, states Wiles.

Our first Range C hasn t let us down since we purchased it a year ago and that was a major factor in selecting the new Range C tridem, he continues.

The truck will be looked after on a five-year Renault Trucks R&M package by our local dealer, Thompsons Commercials.
