This is the Renault Trucks C430 P8x4 with a PPG tipping body and has a GVW of 32T. It was purchased by Witherley Services who are part of Aggregate Industries and is a major supplier of quality materials and services to the construction industry.
Its engine is a DTI 11L E6 with a max torque of 2050Nm and features an EEC EURO VI pollution control – to limit emissions. Typically, this truck will be navigating challenging environments such as quarries and construction sites so a powerful engine like this will let it perform easily.
To further assist its performance in these terrains, a number of safety features have been installed. These include an anti-lock braking system, anti-slip regulation, drag torque control, hill start assist, electronic stability control and emergency brake assist. These features allow the driver to perform safely and confidently. The chassis has also been reinforced from the front drive axle to the rear of the chassis for extra durability.
The cab interior has been designed with comfort in mind and incorporates features to enhance the overall welfare of the driver. Some drivers may spend multiple nights in their trucks, so the cab specification must feel like a home from home. The C Range delivers on this by all the creature comforts – including the luxury driver’s seat with adjustable lumbar support, heating and ventilation systems, a sérénité sleeping bunk, large storage areas and curtains for privacy. This ensures the driver can be self-sufficient when away from base.
