Thomas Hardie Commercials has supplied steel recycling company Sandbach Commercial Dismantlers with two new Volvo trucks.
The Cheshire-based firm’s FMX with day cab features Volvo's D11K engine that produces 410hp as well as an I-Shift automated manual transmission system. This chassis comes with a Boughtons hook loader body, which is fully controlled from within the vehicle.
Its day-cabbed FL-818 includes a D8K250 engine coupled to a six-speed overdrive gearbox as well as Multi-lift Futura FTR12 skip loader body. Both trucks are the subject of three-year Volvo Blue service contracts, with servicing due to take place at the dealer’s Middlewich depot.
Paul Anubla, operations manager at Sandbach Commercial Dismantlers, said: “We bought our first FMX back in 2011 and it's still in service now. We've invested quite a bit in the wagons recently, and last year we decided to go Volvo again as it's been a good truck.
"The fact that the dealer point is so local was a big incentive for us to buy Volvo. Thomas Hardie Commercials are literally five minutes up the road, so it marries up well.”
