The trailer was liveried to mark the 50th anniversary of Volvo’s UK and Irish operation and was hitched to a limited edition FH16-750, one of 50 manufactured for the anniversary celebrations.
The Profi Liner was loaded with concrete blocks to the maximum load of 24 tonnes for the continent and 28 tonnes for the UK.
Martin Tomlinson, Volvo’s head of product demonstration, says: “Fifty of the special Ailsa FH16s have been produced and it seemed fitting to make Ailsa Craig, in north west Scotland, a destination point during the trial.”
The test was successful and the trailer “ran smoothly and, as usual, without any problems”, he reports.
“We specify Krone trailers for our demonstration fleet because, apart from anything else, the equipment is well-built and the service is always first class.”
