Bespoke new trucks get to work for Roadstone & Clem Jacob Hire


*Special orders for Roadstone & Clem Jacob Hire from Mercedes-Benz & DAF Trucks

Leading building materials firm Roadstone, has put into operation a uniquely specified truck in the shape of a new Mercedes-Benz Econic 3235L truck.

The first of its kind in Ireland, the Econic low entry unit offers a new level of safety for operating a mixer truck in a city environment with an ideal driving position for an eye level view of pedestrians, cyclists and other vulnerable road users.

Finished in Roadstone’s distinctive yellow livery, the 8×4 rear-steer configurated Econic is fitted with a mixer bottle by Midland Truck Mixers and comes complete with a full Brigade Camera System, air suspension and Alcoa Dura-Bright alloy rims.

Chief amongst the myriad of safety features is automated frame lowering at the front axle, proximity control, stability control and Brake Assist ‘5’ system, which can recognise when pedestrians cross in front of the vehicle.

Clem Jacob Hire, Six Cross Roads Business Park, Waterford, has put in operation a bespoke DAF CF 410 8×2 rigid, also purchased from DAF Trucks Ireland.

Open 6-days a week, Clem Jacob Hire is the largest provider of plant, machinery and access equipment hire in the South-East region, from teleporters, forklifts, hoists, access equipment to diggers and dumpers.

The new truck comes fitted with a beavertail body, built by Bennett Crane & Truck bodies (Laois) with additional lighting supplied by TRP Ireland.
