A new look for Ruttle Plant

Chorley, Lancashire-based Ruttle Plant has updated its livery to coincide with the arrival of a new Volvo FH tractor unit.

The Globetrotter XL-cabbed 6x4 FH, supplied by Thomas Hardie Commercials in Preston, is equipped with the D13C-540 engine and I-Shift automated transmission.

It is plated for CAT2 STGO operation at up to 80-tonne GCW, although it will usually operate at about 60-tonne GCW.

The truck will typically move 50-tonne machines, including bucket and attachments, around the UK.

Annual mileage is expected to be in the region of 90,000km. It will be coupled to a four-axle Faymonville trailer.
