Delivering to construction sites across the country, the Range C Tridem’s configuration has a lifting and steering rear axle. This makes it easier to manoeuvre in tight access locations, with a tighter turning circle than conventional eight-wheelers.

With its 9m³ Putzmeister concrete mixer body and a Day & Night cab, the new mixer joins Alien’s mixed fleet of 10 six- and eight-wheelers, including a standard 32-tonne Range C430 8x4.

Alien Concrete & Transport managing director Keith Wiles said: “We need good versatility on site, and in tight spaces our standard eight-wheelers can struggle, but the Range C Tridem allows us to run a larger capacity drum with all the manoeuvrability of a 6x4 to places not normally accessible with an eight-wheeler.”
