Volvo FMX tippers deliver the whole package for Tippers ‘R’ Us27 May 2016

Ipswich-based Tippers ‘R’ Us has taken delivery of 10 Volvo FMX 8x4 tippers with Boweld Taperlite bodies.

Supplied by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre East Anglia, the Day-cabbed FMX tippers sit on B-Ride rear two-spring bogie suspension and are powered by a 13-litre D13K engine rated at 420bhp. They are also equipped with I-Shift automated gearboxes featuring construction software.

The 15m³ capacity Boweld Taperlite steel tipping bodies utilise Edbro tipping gear. “The favourable fuel economy of the Volvo FMX allied to the load capability of the Taperlite bodies means we’re getting great operating efficiency,” says Guy Nicholls, managing director of Tippers ‘R’ Us.

He adds: “From my perspective, when you buy a Volvo you are investing in driver comfort and safety, quality, reliability, productivity and healthy resale values. There’s really little else out there to compare.”

All 10 tippers are covered by Volvo R&M contracts, with maintenance and repairs carried out by the supplying dealer.

The tipping business shares a 44-acre site with sister company Trucks ‘R’ Us: “I want Tippers ‘R’ Us to be recognised as the ultimate professional outfit in the recycling field and my choice of Volvo trucks and the £10 million investment I’m making in the Sinks Pit site is testament to this vision,” says Nicholls.
