NFT locks into Jost fifth wheel for new Volvo fleet30 January 2015

Chilled food logistics provider NFT has selected the Jost fifth wheel to be fitted to all 65 Volvo vehicles specified in the past year.

NFT's policy of regular fleet replacement extends to ancillary products, to ensure the vehicles run at optimum performance.

The low-maintenance, lube-free fifth wheel from Jost delivers weight savings, as well as safety benefits.

"We were looking for a lube-free fifth wheel to specify on the latest batch of vehicles," explains Dave Seaton, NFT's fleet engineer.

"We had a trial unit [from Jost] which we ran for over six months, a little over 150,000km, and it performed faultlessly. So the decision to specify the product was a no-brainer."

The Jost product has a lube-free connection for the top plate liners, with a LubeTronic 1 Point system to ensure the lock jaw is properly lubricated for locking to the king pin.
