Road marking and surfacing contractor Quality Marking Services Limited (QMS) has taken delivery of three trucks supplied by Renault Truck Commercials, Exeter.
Two Range D16 Chassis 4×2 R Sweeper 250 E6s with Johnston VT651 sweeper bodies join a Range C430 6×2 with a bespoke built body specifically designed for the installation of the firm’s anti-skid surface treatment, QMS HyperGripTM.
Specifically adapted to meet QMS’ exacting requirements, the Range D sweepers are right hand drive, with a unique roof mounted loading hatch which enables preloading of dry aggregates at ground level. Two aggregate delivery valves at the rear deliver dry, clean, aggregates in a safe and controlled manner, while a weight display prevents overloading and measures the correct quantity of aggregates utilised on each job.
Managing director Greg Clark said: “When we decided to increase the fleet with two bespoke road sweepers, the natural choice was Renault as well as Johnston’s high spec body.”
“Our business is expanding and as we have had such positive experiences, Renault Trucks was top of our mind when we were looking for new vehicles. The “sweeper” pack that is included makes it very straightforward to build the body onto the back of the chassis so we could get the trucks out on the road and working as quickly and effortlessly as possible.”
Wayne Petherick, general sales manager Renault Truck commercials-western region, added: “We are delighted to work with QMS and Johnston to deliver these bespoke vehicles which have been designed with their particular requirements in mind. We look forward to continuing the partnership with QMS and assisting with any future vehicle requirements they have.”
