Why Queensland agitator experts switch to 8×4 Quons


For the first time Queensland-based sub-contractor Lazza’s Logistics has partnered with UD Trucks, making the switch to the brand with an investment in 10 new 8×4 Quons.

Due to their expertise and experience in providing regional transport solutions to the agitator sector, operators such as Holcim and HY-TEC have partnered with the family-run operation for decades.

Safety along with productivity are the cornerstones of Larry and Carla White’s business and at the handover both were blown away with how smooth the Quon is to drive and how easy it is to manoeuvre.

“With our trucks hauling cements loads and making numerous drop offs between the Gold Coast and Brisbane we need safe, reliable and efficient vehicles,” said Larry.

The Quon’s safety features include disc brakes, traffic eye breaking, lane departure warning system and electronic stability control to ensure the safety of the driver and other road users.

“Our priority is ensuring our drivers return safe to their families at the end of the day,” continued Carla.

Driver comfort has been at the forefront of the cabin design with ESCOT-VI automated manual transmission enabling unparalleled operability.

The new 8X4 Quon is tailor-made for the Australian market, offering a high-tensile steel chassis frame and low tare weight for increased payload delivering extra productivity.

As well as safety, UD Trucks values environmental care, and the 8-litre Quon delivers a number of features which work together to maximise fuel savings, including ECO mode, adaptive cruise control, and ESCOT Roll.

The Whites are also impressed with the improved service intervals, comprehensive staff training and support from the extensive Volvo Group network.

Consequently, Lazza’s Logistics has covered the new trucks under the service agreement, receiving all their maintenance and servicing through the Volvo Group Australia dealer network.

“UD and its people really make the extra effort to support our business, making UD the ultimate business partner for Lazza’s Logistics,” said Larry.
