Uttoxeter, Staffordshire-based Punchard Haulage has taken delivery of a 67-plate Volvo FH16-750 with a 10-tonne rated front axle from Hartshorne Motor Services, Burton-on-Trent.
The 750hp 6x2 twin-wheeled tag-axle tractor unit with Globetrotter XL cab, is fitted with a 60-tonne metre capacity HMF 6020 crane to handle deliveries of construction equipment.
It also comes with Volvo’s load indicator which utilises a dashboard display that informs the driver of load distribution and has separate readings for weights, axle loads and bogie loads.
The truck, which is coupled to the haulier’s new Montracon triaxle, rear-steer trailer, is maintained by Hartshorne on a Volvo Gold R&M contract.
