Wellingborough machinery and plant haulier Rob Masters is expanding its fleet with the order of three new top-spec Volvos.
The 6x2 FH13 rigids with Globetrotter cabs will be equipped with Hiab cranes rated at 42 tonne-metres. They will be on the road early next year.
The new vehicles, which, will take the fleet to 27 trucks, are the firm's first at Euro-4.
Proprietor Rob Masters explains: "We've gone for the dreaded Ad-Blue. I've never known a product to cause so much controversy, but it's not as much of a bugbear as people think."
