Volvo specifies Monityre for latest driver CPC training truck 18 February 2010

The newest vehicle on Volvo Trucks' Driver CPC training fleet has been fitted with a Monityre tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) from Safe Europe.

It's been fitted to a Volvo FH-420 6x2 tractor unit, specified with an automatic I-Shift gearbox, and pulling a tri-axle Gray & Adams 13.6 metre trailer, running at maximum 44 tonnes weight.

"Within the CPC training programme, we emphasis fuel economy and our core value of safety, so it's here that tyre pressure monitoring has become such an important element," comments Andy Collett, truck evaluation manager at Volvo Trucks.

"We talk about the importance of having correct tyre pressures as part of our overall fuel economy training programme. By having the TPMS fitted to this Volvo, drivers can keep an eye on the in-cab display."

As for other safety features, the FH-420 is fitted with active cruise control, lane change support and lane keeping support.
