Meet the Cone Ranger, winner announced

It’s the final day of Traffex and the results are in! Blakedale is pleased to announce that the name of their new low-bodied 3.5 tonne Traffic Management Vehicle, as voted for by the industry, is…the Cone Ranger.

“Thank you to everyone who got involved and voted on social media. Our new vehicle has attracted lots of attention at its first official outing at The NEC, Birmingham this week,” says Carmen Bowley, Joint Managing Director of Blakedale.

Prior to the launch, the leading supplier of self drive Traffic Management and Support Vehicles invited followers on Twitter, Facebook and Linked in to vote for their favourite name from a shortlist of Cone Ranger, Cone Hopper, Cone Zone and Low Voyager – and also to submit their own suggestions for consideration. The Cone Ranger was the clear winner collecting the highest number of votes.

Everyone who voted for the winning name was entered into a prize draw for a bottle of champagne. Congratulations James Oddy from Conemasters – you are the lucky winner. Please come along to stand D63 where the Blakedale team is waiting to present you with your prize.

Designed in collaboration with leading traffic management companies, the newly christened Cone Ranger offers the ideal solution for the deployment of cones, signage and traffic lights in the inner city as well as rural environments.

With a low bed height of just 530mm, this new vehicle allows operators to step on and off the working area quickly and safely and removes the need for cone wells.

Carmen Bowley, Joint Managing Director of Blakedale, explains: “Our new low-bodied vehicle offers a compact solution for coning off areas in environments where space and using much larger vehicles can be a challenge.”

Visitors to Traffex have been among the first to see the new vehicle. Another vehicle attracting attention on Blakedale stand D63 is their latest 18 tonne Traffic Management Vehicle complete with Red X Convoy light arrow board, 70mph Blade Crash Cushion and recordable camera system with live tracking and air suspension.
