E M & T Rapson’s ‘Tough and Reliable’ Renault Trucks Range T impresses in the Highlands

Scottish timber haulage specialist, E M & T Rapson s 44-tonne Renault Trucks Range T520 tag with Comfort Pack, supplied by Renault Trucks Scotland, is proving more than tough enough for the arduous Highlands terrain. The Range T, striking in E M & T Rapson s red and blue livery, has been particularly impressive in its handling and performance in demanding conditions on and off-road. Fitted with air-horns, light-bar and spotlights, the forestry specification Range T with Kesla Forestri crane and Dennison skeletal trailer, is the first Renault truck on the company s 9-strong fleet. Previously a sceptic of Euro-6, E M & T Rapson Partner, Tommy Rapson, has been won over by the Range T. As he explains: The approach from Renault Trucks Scotland and a test drive, organised by Elgin Truck and Van in Inverness, left me feeling extremely impressed. The competitive package on offer, which includes a 5-year repair and maintenance contract, sealed the deal.

Tommy continues: It s a really good lorry and our driver has been amazed by its performance. The Highlands are renowned for their challenging hills, but the Range T climbs them effortlessly; our driver has found that it pulls like a train and walks away from the competition.

The truck has been outstanding off-road too, he adds, Forestry roads are notoriously gruelling, but the Range T handles them with ease!

The Range T has positively changed my perception of Euro-6 and Renault Trucks. It is tough and reliable and the driver is impressed by the cab layout and comfort too. Overall I m delighted that I swapped across to Renault Trucks and I will definitely be considering them for any trucks we need in the future, he concludes.

Calum Aitken, Renault Trucks Scotland comments on the deal: I am delighted that E M & T Rapson took the plunge with the Range T for their first Euro-6 vehicle. The Range T was designed to be durable and was tested thoroughly in extreme conditions to meet operator s demands for reliability and robustness, so it s great to hear that this has paid off in the Highlands.
