Chestnutt Animal Feeds adds Renault truck to its fleet
Chestnutt Animal Feeds Limited has added the first ever Renault truck to its fleet. The Renault Trucks T520 High 6x2 pusher axle tractor unit, in Chestnutt’s striking ‘Green Bamboo’ livery, was supplied by Diamond Trucks.
The T520 High joins Chestnutt’s 15-strong fleet distributing animal feed throughout Northern Ireland to busy farms, pulling a Fruehauf bulk tipper trailer, drawing raw materials and transporting 3-4 loads per day up and down the motorway.
The T520 High’s DT13 litre engine, with a maximum torque of 2550Nm, is coupled to Renault Trucks’ Optidriver AT 2612F gearbox with automated clutch. For maximum efficiency, the T High is equipped with optional Eco Cruise Control freewheel mode control to help drive down fuel consumption, while Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) linked to advanced emergency braking system (AEBS) offers enhanced safety. The highly spec’d new truck also features Alcoa Dura-Bright Aluminium wheels, fixed roof deflector, side deflectors and roof-mounted twin air horns, as well as ROADPAD infotainment system.
Managing Director James Chestnutt explains why he selected the Renault Trucks T High: “Our business continues to grow so when I was looking for a new vehicle I decided to give Renault Trucks a try. I’d heard good things about the T High and it was its reputation together with a competitive deal on the table that convinced me to add one to our fleet. It’s early days so far but it looks good and it’s doing the job.”
