Impressed by its performance and features, Lynch has decided to add the Renault Kerax to its fleet, ordering 24 of these vehicles fitted with next generation grab lorry tippers for carrying spoil from worksites to disposal facilities across London, the Midlands and the South East. Powerful, sturdy and well suited to on and off-road driving, the Renault Kerax was also adopted for its performance in terms of safety, particularly its easy-access cab.
Lynch Plant Hire and Haulage has just taken delivery of the first 4 Renault Kerax out of a total order of 24. These vehicles stand out by being fitted with latest generation grab lorry tipper bodies from Massey Truck Engineering, specially developed for this customer. These vehicles will be used in the civil engineering sector for carrying spoil from construction sites to disposal facilities in the London area as well as the Midlands and south-east of England. These will be the first Renault vehicles to join the Lynch fleet.
This is a sector in which customers are extremely demanding with regard to safety. This is why the easy access to the Kerax cab when climbing in and out was a crucial factor in the decision-making process. For this particular application, special attention has been paid to "visual safety", with all access points painted in yellow.
Robert Lynch, the company's director, explains his choice: "These new vehicles represent a significant project and investment for us and, as such, we went through a very big procurement process. We evaluated all the main manufacturers, in terms of value and reliability, and the Renault Kerax came out on top. The Kerax is a powerful, sturdy vehicle, well suited to both on- and off-road use and we feel it is an excellent truck on which to mount our bespoke grab lorries. If all goes well, we are looking to purchase a further 50 Renault Kerax."
