Construction material supplier Gleeson Quarries has taken delivery of two Renault Range C trucks, the first of this marque to join its 40-strong fleet.

Supplied by distributor Surehaul Commercials, the Tipperary-based operator’s new additions are Renault model C380 10x4s, both fitted with Gleeson Steel half-pipe bodies to deliver stone, wet mix, sand and gravel to its customers in Ireland.


The new Range Cs have a specially-fitted fifth pusher axle, allowing the trucks to handle an increased payload of up to 24.45 tonnes. Renault’s five-axle combinations, with complete vehicle type approval, meet the demand for heavier applications without the need or expense of retrofitting an additional axle, and come with full warranty and aftermarket support to deliver lower operating costs in the long run.

Peter Gleeson, Gleeson Quarries’ managing director, says Renault was the only marque able to offer a pusher axle of this type: “Other manufacturers could only offer us a tag axle... Having the fifth axle in the centre is better suited to our particular operation and it is far more versatile – for example, tipping into paving machines for road works.”

The trucks are supplied on a five-year warranty.
