Renault Trucks will be exhibiting at the next SAMOTER international show, primarily focused on the world of construction which will be held in Verona from 2 to 6 March 2011. The star of the stand will be the Premium Lander 4x2 OptiTrack with its hydraulic motors in the wheels and temporary full transmission. It will be accompanied by the rest of the Construction range represented by a Renault Kerax 520 hp 8x4 and Premium Lander 460 hp 8x2. Visitors will also be able to see a Master, a Maxity and a Midlum on the stand and presentation of the Premium Distribution Hybrys Tech on the fringes of the Exhibition Centre. This is the Renault Trucks hybrid vehicle which is currently being operated by Colas and will also be on display to the public.
The only European manufacturer to offer worksite and worksite supply vehicles within the same range, Renault Trucks will be exhibiting at the Samoter 2011 exhibition dedicated to Earthmoving and Construction in Verona (Italy) from 2 to 6 March 2011. In the field of worksite supply, the Premium Lander OptiTrack 4x2 will be displayed for the first time in Italy. Thanks to the hydraulic motors built into the front wheels, this vehicle can switch from 4x2 mode to 4x4 mode simply by pressing a button on the dashboard. This allows drivers to benefit from full transmission on demand to help them get out of difficult situations. The construction range will be completed by a Renault Kerax, which now enjoys a unique reputation as the ideal vehicle for even the most challenging construction sites.
Apart from these vehicles from the Construction range, the "worksite" versions of other Renault Trucks models, such as Renault Master, Renault Maxity or Renault Midlum will also be prominently displayed. In addition, the stand will be featuring the Renault Sherpa which took part in the Cape to Cape expedition and, more recently, the Dakar 2011 rally. The Premium Distribution Hybrys Tech, the Renault Trucks hybrid vehicle currently being operated by Colas (a supplier of construction materials) will also be on display to the public at this show.
Finally, visitors will have the possibility of test driving the vehicles throughout the length of the exhibition.
List of vehicles on display: Renault Kerax 520 hp 8X4, Renault Premium Lander 460 hp 4x2 Optitrack, Renault Premium Lander 460 hp 8x2, Renault Midlum 220 hp, Renault Maxity 130 hp and a Renault Master 125 hp chassis cab.
