Livestock haulier Harry George Haulage has added a new Renault T rigid to its growing inventory of Renault Trucks products, including three T High tractors. The Bruton, Somerset operator now has nine of the French products, supplied by Sparks Commercial Services.

The latest is a Renault T520 6x2 rigid with sleeper cab. The vehicle specification includes 4-point cab air suspension, Alcoa Dura-Bright aluminium wheels, twin air horns, front air suspension, “ultimate” upper bunk and leather steering wheel, luxury driver’s seat, ROADPAD+, 24L “quiet” fridge, comfort air conditioning, one-touch electric windows, and multimedia touchscreen.

Accomodation for the non-human passengers is provided by Ploughman Atlas livestock container, with an extensive hydraulic system that powers three lifting decks, lifting roof, and rear loading door, providing variable floor heights for cattle, sheep and pigs, in transport throughout the UK. Director Harry George says: “Our investment in the latest vehicle technologies with the T520 and Ploughman Atlas container demonstrates our commitment to delivering livestock safely and efficiently for our customers, giving them total peace of mind.”

He adds “We started out with three trucks and now, because we’ve built up a solid reputation, we’ve become increasingly busy and expanded the fleet to nine. We run an all-Renault Trucks fleet; they just work extremely well in our operation. Importantly our eight drivers are happy and we don’t hear any complaints!

Praising his local Renault Trucks approved dealer, A E George Commercials, George says: “Keeping our vehicles moving and minimising down time is key for our business. We find Renault Trucks to be extremely reliable and any issues that do arise, they are quickly sorted by our local dealer who is on the same site as us.”
