Born out of a passion for traction
More than 30 years of field experience in the maintenance and repair of road-rail shunting vehicles means Rentaloc has gained a deep insight into the industry standard, which served as the basis for its own innovative, reliable developments and productions.
It all started in the 80s and 90s in the concession for Unimog 4×4 trucks for Antwerp – UCA. Many of these Unimogs were used for rail shunting work in the Antwerp port area.
With a wealth of field experience, the step was then taken to the first own developments, based on a JCB Loadall, the UCA-trac.
