Volvo Trucks Will Display Three Vehicles at 2011 Tip Ex

Volvo Trucks will be exhibiting three trucks on their stand at Tip Ex this year - two Volvo FMX 8x4 tippers, including a medium duty variant and a payload focused one, plus a Euro-4 spec example of an FH-480 6x2 tractor unit from the company’s Selected Used Truck scheme. In addition, a Volvo FM 8x4 Tridem belonging to Leicestershire operator GLW Feeds is also on show on the Priden Engineering stand.

With 5,000 already sold since it was launched last year, the Volvo’s FMX is proving to be an outstanding success in the construction sector.

The payload focused FMX 8x4 features the Euro-5 compliant SCR equipped 10.8 litre engine rated at 410hp between 1600 and 1900 rpm. It’s fitted with a PPG Smoothline insulated Tarmac tipper body, Edbro CX14 tipping ram and Dawbarn Raptor top sheet.

The medium duty FMX 8x4 comes with a 12.8 litre inline 6 cylinder engine rated at 380 hp between 1400 and 1900rpm. The bodywork is supplied by Thompson in the form of a steel medium duty Loadmaster Lite and the tipping ram is an Edbro CX15.

“The demand for the FMX in the UK and throughout Europe is proof that Volvo have really got it right in terms of providing construction truck operators with a product and transport solution that meets their need for a tough, durable tipper with a top class driver environment as well as industry leading productivity. Our construction industry customers also benefit from our close working relationship with Volvo Construction Equipment and the fact that Volvo is the only global manufacturer to be able to supply and support the largest range of construction machinery and equipment – whether that’s new or used trucks, compact wheel loaders or tracked excavators,” according to Volvo Group UK Managing Director Goran Nyberg.

“Volvo is the only manufacturer to provide a total transport solution for the construction industry. The Volvo Dealer Network is totally focused on delivering consistent, right first time service for construction trucks and offers a range of maintenance solutions to meet the needs of any construction truck operator,” concluded Goran Nyberg.
