Volvo Trucks is showcasing a number of the recently-launched innovations on its construction truck range at Hillhead 2016. These include a tipper-bodied example of the new, factory-built, FMX Tridem 10×6.
Visitors to the show, which takes place at Hillhead Quarry near Buxton, Derbyshire between the 28th and 30th June, will be able to inspect a top-of-the-range FH16-750 tractor unit, an FM 8×4 tipper fitted with a lightweight, insulated aggregate body to Tarmac specification by PPG and the aforementioned five-axle 10×6 tipper. The latter will be exhibited with a 27m³ Meiller heavy-duty, steel tipper body featuring over-cab protection.
In addition to the Volvo FMX, Volvo FM N3 On-Road specification trucks, FH and Volvo FH16, the Volvo Trucks construction truck range also encompasses the Volvo FL 4×4, with four-wheel drive and a GVW of up to 18 tonnes, and the Volvo FE for tipper, truckmixer and platform body with crane / grab applications, which is available as a rigid to a maximum GVW of 26 tonnes.
As in previous years, Volvo Trucks is sharing the stand (Y5) of Volvo Construction Equipment and Volvo Penta, whose generator will provide power for the facilities there.
