Hampshire Plant and Access Ltd. (HPA) has invested in its first four Renault trucks for the company’s 10-strong mixed fleet, through Renault Trucks distributor, Sparks Commercial Services.  The three Premium Lander 380.26 6x2 trucks and a Renault Premium 460.25 6x2 tractor unit, all with Beavertail plant bodies, are fitted with Renault Trucks’ Optidriver automated gearbox, which delivers impressive handling performance across all terrains.
The new trucks transport plant to the construction and building industry from the company’s three depots in Winchester, Southampton and Salisbury. They operate to and from customer sites in Hampshire, across the South of England and into London.
Ricky Hall, Transport Manager, Hampshire Plant and Access, says: “When looking to update our fleet to comply with the London LEZ, we wanted to be cost conscious, without losing out on quality. The Renault Premium and Premium Lander have a number of key benefits for us, the main one being the impressive Optidriver gearbox. These are the first trucks we have had with automated gearboxes and we are finding that they handle so much better, together with improved economy and less driver fatigue.”
"The drivers love the ergonomic design of the steering wheel controls; it brings everything within easy reach keeping them safer on the road.”
Commenting on vehicle selection, he continues: “We purchased the Renault Premium Lander for its reliability. We offer a same day service, often having to deliver plant in a few hours, so we cannot afford any delays or problems with our trucks and the Lander ensures we can deliver.”
Hampshire Plant and Access Hire Ltd. was established in 2008 and specialises in the supply of plant equipment, including excavators, dumpers, forklifts, as well as powered access hire, such as work platforms, booms and scissor lifts.
