Easton Sales and Rentals delivers first Rokbak articulated haulers
Easton Sales and Rentals has taken delivery of the first-ever Rokbak articulated haulers. The Rokbak brand launched September 1, 2021, as part of the Volvo Group, with its RA30 and RA40 articulated haulers built at the company factory in Motherwell, Scotland.
"It's a great honour for our company to get the first Rokbak articulated hauler and there was real excitement around the dealership when it arrived," said Jeff Udelson, Managing Principle of Easton Sales and Rentals. "Rokbak has only been in existence a short time, but it's built on the legacy of a company with a long history. What's most impressive about the new Rokbak brand is how clear it is to see what it stands for - hard work, performance, reliability, sustainability. It's also backed by the Volvo Group so there's no doubt about the quality or performance."
The first delivery was part of a package of two RA30 models received by Easton Sales and Rentals. Both were sold to Linco Construction, a family-owned and operated company. The company has already put the Rokbak machines to work, helping with earthworks, underground utility, clearing work and more.
The RA30 articulated hauler from Rokbak is ideal for construction sites, infrastructure developments or quarries. The 30.9-ton unit offers a heaped capacity of 22.9 cubic yards and is powered by a Scania DC9 engine, which develops gross power of 370 hp and a maximum torque of 1387 lbf ft. Its fuel-efficient engine is emissions compliant and meets the requirements of the latest North American legislation with T4F.
The hauler's EP320 transmission comes with eight forward and four reverse gears, with a top speed of 34 mph, high overall gear ratio spread, equal ratio steps between gears and optimized gear shifting with partial load shifts. This adds up to lower fuel consumption, smoother gear shifting, better operator comfort and faster cycle times. Increased productivity and uptime, plus lower cost per ton, are further boosted by the long-life transmission fluid, which increases the time needed between oil changes from 1,000 to 4,000 hours.
In addition to the two Rokbak RA30 units it has already received, Easton Sales and Rentals has a further three on their way to Texas. Two are already sold to JMC Equipment LLC, while the third will join the inventory fleet at Easton Sales and Rentals.
