Punchard Haulage picks heavyweight Volvo FH03 October 2017

Punchard Haulage has taken delivery of a new Volvo FH16-750 tractor, with the option of a 10-tonne rated front axle sealing the deal for the Uttoxeter-based operator.

Supplied by dealer Hartshorne Motor Services, the 750bhp Volvo FH is a 6x2 twin-wheeled tag-axle tractor unit plated for 44-tonne gcw operation. It is equipped with a 60 tonne/metre capacity HMF 6020 crane for deliveries of construction equipment.

The Globetrotter XL-cabbed FH16-750 is also equipped with Volvo’s Load Indicator, which uses a dashboard display to inform the driver of load distribution with separate readings for weights, axle loads and bogie loads.

The truck is maintained by Hartshorne on a Volvo Gold R&M contract and will be coupled to Punchard’s new Montracon tri-axle, rear-steer trailer.

The Crossrail compliant company, which has operated Volvo trucks for over 40 years, was one of the first operators to become FORS accredited in 2011 and has held Gold status since earlier this year.
