Mercedes-Benz Arocs for JR Allen & Son

  • 25 March 2014
  • By Roger Brown

Peterborough-based concrete contractor JR Allen Son has acquired an 8×4 Mercedes-Benz Arocs concrete mixer.

The truck, supplied by the Intercounty Truck Van dealership, has a Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated transmission and is powered by the 10.7-litre OM470 engine, rated at 422hp.

In a typical day each of the company’s vehicles might make up to 10 short trips between one of concrete supplier Hanson’s plants and a large construction site.

Tom Allen, owner-driver, said: “The Arocs will have to contend with some very rough construction sites, on which driving conditions can be extremely demanding.

“But this truck offers excellent ground clearance and from what I’ve seen of its off-road capability I’m confident it will take everything in its stride.”
