Supplied by dealer Wales and West Truck and Bus Evesham, the two 8x4 Volvo chassis FMX-420s are equipped with day cabs, D13K engines rated at 414bhp and I-Shift automated manual transmission systems, and join a 15-strong fleet of rigid tippers.
The FMXs feature Boweld steel muckaway tipper bodies, powered by Edbro hydraulics. Scotts also specified PM onboard weighing systems, air-operated tipper tailgates and electric sheeting systems.
The vehicles are supplied with a six-year Volvo Gold R&M contract, which guarantees uptime.
“Our tippers do a bit of everything from muckaway to aggregate works.Road planings, recycled materials and topsoil are also carried regularly,” says Scott Witheford, director at Scotts Plant & Haulage.
He adds: “Volvo builds a good, reliable all round truck. Our FM and FMX models are popular with the drivers, who also rate the I-Shift automated manual transmission systems highly.”
