WMS Warranty

Newly formed County Antrim-based, Bewlake Lift and Haul has purchased an FH tractor unit with a three-year Volvo Service Contract, which will be carried out at the Dennison Commercials Coleraine dealerpoint.

The 6×4 tractor unit, that hauls a new SDC extendable platform trailer that can stretch from 33 to 54 feet, features Volvo’s Tandem Axle lift and is plated for STGO operations up to 65 tonnes. Powered by a Volvo D13K engine with a power output of 540hp, the FH was ordered with a Globetrotter Cab and a high specification interior that includes full leather trim.

The FH has been fitted with a Hiab 858 Hi-Pro EP6 truck mounted crane that can lift 22 tonnes at 3 metres and 4.1 tonnes at 16.3 metres. Managing Director, Mike Blake said: “At present this Hiab is possibly the largest in Northern Ireland and I decided on the FH chassis as I think Volvo builds the best truck on the road.

“The Globetrotter Cab has already proved comfortable for multiple nights out and generally the FH is second to none, I’m extremely happy with it. I’m starting out in business on a very strong footing. The time spent researching such a comprehensive vehicle was well worth it.”
