Five Renault Tippers For Yuill & Dodds

BLANTYRE based Yuill & Dodds, has continued its working partnership with Renault, putting five C520 rigid tippers into service over the last 12 months as direct replacements for a similar group of 520hp Renaults that had entered service during 2017.
Supplied by Renault Trucks Scotland at Bellshill, the 5.6m wheelbase rigids feature all-round parabolic steel spring suspension to provide generous ground clearance levels.
Yuill & Dodds were arguably the pioneers of high power, high specification eight-wheeled tippers in the Scottish road transport industry. The latest C520s continue the theme with Renault’s DTI 13 engines producing their maximum 512hp between 1,430 and 1,800rpm. A 12 speed Optidriver overdrive gearbox and PMR 2191 double reduction drive axles with a ratio of 3.70:1, complete the powertrains.
