Renault Master Low Loader Review
The Renault Master Low Loader at a glance
Do you work in removals, deliver large and bulky goods or are self-employed and want to make your business mobile? With space at a premium and easy accessibility, the Renault Master Low Loader makes for the perfect van for you if your answer to any of those was ‘yes’.
With a large load volume, generous payload and intuitive accessibility, the Renault Master Low Loader is the ideal van of choice for those who view space and practicality as a must for their work van. In addition to this, the interior comfort and storage features are also essential for anyone who spends long days in their van, whether that’s driving it about or treating it as a mobile office.
Read on below as we delve into the features and specifications of the Master Low Loader and compare its performance to your working needs, determining whether it really is a master afterall.
Engines and Spec
All low loader conversions of the Master van operate using a Blue dCi 145 diesel engine, with an average MPG of 34.5, which, though not the most efficient, isn’t bad considering the size of the van and the weight it can carry. In terms of power, you can expect a comfortable 128bhp alongside a maximum torque of 360Nm, making motorway driving more than manageable and able to keep up with other traffic – which is particularly useful for those who work in removals and will often have to make regular long distance journeys.
As for loading capabilities, there is a total of 19m3 of space available along with a maximum payload of up to 1,238kg. This is an excellent payload compared to other luton and low loader vans that are currently on the market. This makes the Master Low Loader ideal for couriers who specifically deliver large items, such as washing machines or fridge-freezers, as well as people who offer a local removals service for people who need help moving large household or office items that they are unable to fit in the car to move themselves.
As standard, there are two different height lashing rails on either side of the low loader’s interior, which is essential for removals and couriers to safely secure their loads for when they are driving, ensuring that their customers’ items/belongings aren’t damaged in transit.
Working with such large and heavy loads, it is also important that accessibility is well-thought out for those who require the use of a low loader van. In keeping with the name, the Master Low Loader has a loading height of 500mm, along with the addition of a fixed rear step to make loading and unloading as easy as possible.
Not only that, but the rear barn doors open to 270°, meaning they will sit flush against the exterior walls of the van once open so that they do not impede on the available space when trying to load and unload the van.
By having such a large and adaptable space, the Master Low Loader can easily be converted for specialist use, also, making it ideal for people who own mobile businesses (or are looking to make their business mobile). This could include a range of professions, whether it be dog grooming, catering or mobile beauty treatments, with more than enough space for all necessary equipment to be integrated.
Specifically designed to meet the needs of professionals, the interior cabin area doubles up as a mobile office that is ideal for self-employed individuals operating a mobile business. The passenger bench seat folds down to reveal a pivoting table that is great for resting your laptop on, while the range of storage options throughout store all that you could need while on the move.
Pros & Cons
- Can be converted for specialist use – perfect for mobile businesses.
- Excellent payload compared to other low loader vans on the market.
- Easy to load and unload with the addition of the step.
- Only accessible from the back, less ideal for efficiently delivering smaller items that need to be quick.
- Despite ample space, being low does mean this is impeded slightly by the wheel arches.
Perfect for self employed individuals who are looking to make their business mobile or as part of a fleet of vehicles for a removals company or courier of large and heavy goods, the Renault Master Low Loader offers a generous loading space with a competitive payload, all while boasting easy accessibility for maximum efficiency.
