Used truck of the week is this 2016 Volvo FH4 6x2 tractor unit with Globetrotter XL cab.

The 16-plate vehicle, which produces 500hp, features a 13-litre engine, I-Shift gearbox, two-year selected warranty from the manufacturer, and has clocked up 148,000km. Carl Boase, national used Volvo sales executive - Thomas Hardie Used Trucks, said: “The truck has been on a full Volvo Gold R&M contract all its life, is suitable for all kinds of haulage, and has the advantage of the 4.1m wheelbase and sliding fifth wheel.

“Also, this truck features the biggest cab Volvo builds [the XL], so there is plenty of comfort for the driver, and the added bonus of full leather trim and fridge. It also has the benefit of twin tanks fitted - approximately 800 litres - for carrying extra fuel.”

Thomas Hardie Used Trucks, a Volvo main dealer, has been established for more than 25 years, and has customers across the UK and Ireland. Its used truck super site in Middlewich, Cheshire, just off junction 18 of the M6, has Volvo-trained staff and includes Volvo’s latest software and diagnostic tools.

Boase said the vehicle has passed the manufacturer’s comprehensive inspection and pre-delivery preparation process. He added: “We have the ability to ensure your new used truck is in first-class condition, and our highly skilled valeting team pride themselves on the quality presentation of our vehicles.”
