First Volvo FL 18-tonne crew cab makes its mark for WJ UK16 April 2018

Road marking business WJ UK has taken delivery of the UK’s first 18-tonne Volvo FL with factory-fitted crew cab, after positive experience with a 16-tonne version.

Supplied by dealer Crossroads Truck and Bus, the operator’s latest addition is a 5,600mm wheelbase 4x2 rigid.

It has a D8K engine producing 276bhp coupled to a six-speed manual transmission system. As well as a rear engine-mounted live drive PTO, an extra front-mounted engine pulley provides drive for some of the bodywork accessories.

The new arrival also features a 7.1-tonne front axle, large capacity alternator and cab air conditioning, and the body has been designed and built in-house by WJ UK.

“The new FL is an excellent machine. The driver and team allocated to the truck are pleased with both its performance and capabilities,” says Mark Fawcett, managing director at WJ’s Elland depot.
