Volvo delivers Agriwork’s latest speciality04 August 2010

Volvo Truck and Bus Centre London has supplied excavator hire and groundworks specialist Agriwork with a fully-speced FH16-700.

John Edwards, owner of the Bracknell-based company, opted for bespoke alloy fuel and hydraulic tanks, made-to-measure checker plate catwalks, alloy wheels, special chassis paint and a 'fully-loaded', lacquered 'Globetrotter XL' cab.

"We've got a few old trucks and a number of specialised trailers on the fleet, but I decided to treat myself to a new truck and go for the very best I could," explains Edwards.

"I did consider a Bentley," he jokes, "but this way I can be pampered in luxury all day at work in the Volvo, instead of just on my way home."

The FH16-700 joins a specialised fleet that includes a step frame low-loader for excavator delivery, a bulk tipping trailer, flat timber trailer and an ejector for hardcore and soil. They are put to work on projects as diverse as land drainage, site clearance, equestrian ménages, car parks and swimming pools.
