Dyson Hydraloader measures up for Kindell Motors
Kindell Motors’ latest aluminium slidebed was made to measure by Roger Dyson Group and came at an unbeatable price.
Mounted on a 10-tonne gvw Renault Midlum chassis, the Dyson Hydraloader 4000LA has a low-approach aluminium slidebed and is designed for ultimate ease of use by a single recovery technician.
Dyson also fitted the truck with an independent second-vehicle lift, then added finishing touches including full-length grp side panels with integral lockers, and an eye-catching livery in Aylesbury-based Kindell Motors’ distinctive colours.
As well as specifying wireless remote control functions at every opportunity, to make his technicians’ lives both easier and safer, Managing Director Ray Kindell commissioned a six-inch reduction in the width of the bed, for enhanced manoeuvrability on narrow country lanes. A permanent motorcycle recovery frame was also installed.
“Dyson’s equipment is as good as you can get,” affirms Mr Kindell. “We have an excellent relationship with Roger and his team, and they were able to offer us a very competitive price on a vehicle conversion with quite a list of non-standard features.
“We’re very pleased with the results as the truck is highly versatile and already proving to be a productive addition to our line-up.”
With its 4,000kg capacity, the Hydraloader 4000LA is easily capable of recovering a fully loaded van. The second lift also means it is well suited for the road accident recoveries that Mr Kindell envisages will account for the bulk of its work.
“The combination of a 10-tonne gvw chassis with a 4.0-tonne bed and a second lift makes recovering two cars very easy, with no risk of overloading. Meanwhile, Renault’s Optitronic automated transmission makes driving the truck as easy as using the recovery equipment,” he says.
The new Hydraloader increases Kindell’s fleet strength to 14 – the company’s vehicles cover a 20-mile radius of their base in Aylesbury, offering both light and heavy recoveries.
Mr Kindell adds: “We operate several other Roger Dyson-bodied vehicles, including a 3000SLa Super-Low approach aluminium slidebed which we bought in 2008, and have always found Dyson equipment to be well made and very reliable.”Back to News & Events
