KERAX’S PULLING POWER WINS OVER CR HALES FOR UNIQUE DRAWBAR SKIP LOADER

Renault Kerax

Lowestoft-based waste, scrap and recycling company, CR Hales Ltd, has taken delivery of the UK’s first Renault Kerax 520.42 8x4 drawbar skip loader. This unique vehicle, supplied by Renault Trucks main dealer Renault Trucks Felixstowe, in conjunction with the Roy Humphrey Group, was purposed designed for CR Hales’ application and Renault Trucks was the only manufacturer able to deliver to this exacting specification.

The Kerax, with Boughton body fitted by Machinery Maintenance Limited in Stanton, went on the road on 1st March and joins CR Hales’ mixed fleet of Daf, Scania and Iveco skip loaders and roll-on/roll-offs.  The high-powered 520 bhp engine ensures that the Kerax and its trailer operate at 44 tonne gross weight effectively, and for Managing Director Charles Richard (Dick) Hales, the extra torque delivered by the Renault truck was the key factor in the company’s purchasing decision.

Charles Hales says: “We researched the market and found that only Renault Trucks had the manufacturing flexibility that allowed us to stipulate exactly what we wanted – everyone else could only offer off-the-shelf trucks. We needed extra horse power to pull up hills when we’re running at 44 tonnes and the Kerax’s 520 engine delivers.  Getting the right specification was paramount and although fuel efficiency wasn’t our first consideration the fuel consumption of the Kerax’s larger engine is comparable to the rest of the fleet.”

Family business, CR Hales Ltd was established in 1980 by Charles Richard Hales and has grown to become one of Suffolk’s leading scrap and waste recycling companies with a reputation for service excellence.  Today, the family are still actively involved in the company which employs 10 staff, runs a fleet of five trucks and specialises in services including commercial and domestic waste transfer, recycling centre, end of life vehicle disposal and skip hire.
