Time for T at Chris Waite

  • 31 July 2014
  • By Chris Druce

Driffield, East Yorkshire-based livestock haulier Chris Waite has taken delivery of a 520hp Renault T range via Thompson Commercials.

The 6×2 Sleeper cab rigid joins a 14-strong fleet made up of Renaults, Volvos and Scanias.

The truck features a multi-deck, 25ft Platinum body produced by Milnthorpe, Cumbria-based manufacturer Houghton-Parkhouse.

Owner Chris Waite told CM that having run an 09-plate Premium rigid from new and having recently purchased a nearly new Renault Magnum tractor unit, it was a logical step to give the T a go.

This was helped by a long-standing relationship with Thompson Commercials.

The T, which has been purchased on a five-year finance deal with a repair and maintenance contract, is performing “exceptionally well”, according to Waite, and delivers 10mpg.

Although Renault is not bringing its flat-floor High Sleeper cab option to the UK for the T, Waite said the T’s Sleeper cab was “better specced” than the Magnum and more roomy inside than it first appeared.
