Renault Premium Crane Trucks for Sale

1.5 Average

Renault’s truck range is extremely competitive, meaning you can find commercial vehicles of all kinds both new and used from this manufacturer. And the Premium is one of its most popular models on the second-hand market, with many different body styles added to the reliable chassis that unifies many models in the range.

You can select from used Premium crane vehicles for those times when you need a vehicle which can both transport loose payloads and also collect materials itself without additional equipment. Trucks with integrated cranes are more mechanically complex than standard tippers, so testing a Premium before purchase is a good idea.

There are three aspects of a used Renault Premium crane truck that you have to consider: the cab, the crane and the body of the truck. The crane is arguably the most important element of all, since it is the feature that defines the truck and distinguishes it from standard tipper models. Renault does not design and manufacture the cranes in-house, so this equipment can come from well-known third-party firms, including Atlas and others. This is worth bearing in mind from a maintenance perspective, since you may need to seek specialist parts and expertise to amend any issues that arise with the crane. And this is another reason to buy a used Premium crane truck which has all of its equipment in a fully operational state.

Crane specifications and the type of bucket it features will need to be uncovered. This includes looking at the maximum payload at its fully extended height, as well as the reach it offers. Outriggers can be found on some Renault Premium crane trucks to add stability and thus improve the functionality of the crane itself. The type of controls to be used to operate the crane are another thing to bear in mind, as is the smoothness with which the hydraulics execute movements. Keep an eye on any telltale signs that something is not quite right.

The tipper body will be next on your checklist, as the length and payload potential of the truck are defined by this to a degree. As with other tippers, check to see whether a used Premium has steel or alloy body panels while also assessing the nature of the tailgate and the type of hydraulic ram which will be used to lift it up and help deposit whatever materials are on board. Trucks such as this are usually used in construction, with harsh environments and irregular loads often leaving their mark on the body. Get a close look at a used Premium crane truck to see how it has withstood previous deployments and to determine if maintenance work may be needed in the near future.

The cab of a Premium crane truck may seem as if it is low on your list of priorities when picking a used unit, but this is the place where the drivers will spend the majority of their time. The amount of space is decent, even in the more compact day cabs found on some Premium models. Engines will have been built to comply with emissions regulations at the time of manufacture, but obviously newer models will be more efficient and cleaner than older equivalents.
