Renault Returns To The High Road

Renault Trucks’ return to Highlands and Islands distribution specialists D. R. Macleod proves much smoother than the Scottish Government’s recent management of Scottish ferry operations. John Henderson looks for a bridge over troubled waters.

FIRSTLY, let’s concentrate on the good news. DR Macleod, one of Scotland’s best known Highlands and Islands transport businesses, has re-introduced Renault trucks back into its distinctively liveried fleet.
Supplied by Graham Fletcher, transport solutions executive at Renault Trucks Scotland, the stunning looking Range T High 6×2 pusher axle tractor unit was painted by Courtney & McMillan, with decals courtesy of OPG Fleet Vehicle Graphics.
The 3.9m wheelbase chassis includes Renault’s DTi13 engine rated at 520hp and a 12 speed, direct top, Optidriver gearbox. Delivered through Renault Trucks Scotland’s Bellshill headquarters, the truck is also fitted with a Fontaine fifth wheel and Alcoa Dura-Bright alloy wheels.
