Cornwall-based Combellack Vehicle Recyclers of Roche has put two new 26-tonne Volvo FM-420 6×2 rear-steer lift axle chassis from Stuarts Truck and Bus into service – the UK’s first to be fitted with fully-galvanised Belle eight-car salvage bodywork.
Supplied by Justin Fisher, Sales Director at the dealer, both chassis are powered by Volvo D13K Euro-6 engines rated at 420hp. I-Shift 12-speed automated transmission systems, nine-tonne front axles and sleeper cabs are also part of the FMs’ detailed specification.
Their cabs have full leather trims, refrigerators, Volvo satellite navigation and audio packages as well as heated and cooled drivers’ seats. The twin deck transporters’ specification also includes winches, solid decking and snatch blocks.
The front steel, rear air suspension rigids come with seven-year Volvo Gold Service contracts, to be carried out by the recently opened Stuarts Truck and Bus dealerpoint in Victoria, close to the firm’s Roche base.
