Heavy vehicle recovery operator Sparrow Recovery has added a 120-tonne Renault Trucks C520 8x4 to its 35-strong mixed fleet.

Supplied by Thompson Commercials, it joins a Renault Trucks T520 tractor unit under a low loader and four Renault Trucks Master roadside service vans.

Fitted to a Falkom FAW 25000 ‘powerhouse’ wrecker recovery body with heavy recovery crane built in Holland, the new C520 is working on heavy recovery for contracts across Yorkshire and Europe.

James Sparrow, director, said: “We operate a fleet of heavy recovery vehicles and work with some highly demanding customers, so we only ever buy the best quality equipment.

“For this vehicle we wanted a high-power 4-axle with a large GTW, strong running gear and a nice cab. The Renault truck fits the bill perfectly it has top-spec equipment with many additional extras making it a high quality, very prestigious unit with a high residual value.”
