Volvo returns To Brocklebank & Co Demolition With 12 FMX tippers29 November 2021

Brocklebank & Co Demolition has taken on 12 Volvo FMX 8x4 tippers, replacing a rival manufacturer’s trucks in the business's muckaway fleet.

The family-run firm has a long history of running Volvos and has returned to the Swedish manufacturer again after a two-year spell using a different marque.

Supplied by Crossroads Truck & Bus, the new FMXs are powered by a 12.8 litre Euro-VI diesel engine, producing up to 414bhp and 2,100Nm of torque. They are driven through Volvo’s I-Shift automated 12-speed transmission, with enhanced software for construction and off-road applications.

Brocklebank & Co Demolition has specified the trucks with Volvo’s X-High Chassis and paired them with Thompson steel tipper bodywork. They each benefit from the latest cab design offering superior comfort, with distinctive V-shaped LED headlamps with headlamp protectors, new anti-slip footsteps and a striking digital dashboard display.

The trucks will be in operation between five to six days a week and are expected to clock up between 70-80,000km per annum, removing waste material from construction sites within a 30-mile radius of Sheffield. Backed by a Volvo Gold Contract to guarantee maximum uptime, all routine servicing and maintenance work will be carried out by the Crossroad Truck & Bus depot in Rotherham.
