NEW 2019 SCANIA R SERIES R500

Updated: 17/7/2019

Our newest addition to the Chasetown fleet has arrived. Our latest investment is a 2019 Scania R Series R500. The wagon is described by Scania as ‘A Born Classic’ and will only enhance Chasetown’s capabilities in the future.  Enhanced injectors and combustion chambers in addition to a new rear axle ratio, contribute to reduced fuel consumption through lower engine speeds, making this truck more sustainable for the future. The 13 litre engine boasts an impressive 500 brake-horsepower, with 2550nm of torque, making it the ideal choice for the large loads Chasetown’s vehicles must be capable of carrying. The R500 features a 6×2 tractor style wheelbase, with modern innovative, systems to improve cab safety and visibility. A modular instrument panel combined with optimum driving position will ensure that our employees are working in a comfortable and safe environment, whilst integrated headlights will ensure safety of others on the road. Shown in the photos below is the new wagon with our Hitachi Zaxis 130 excavator on the trailer.
