Volvo Truck and Bus Centre East Anglia has supplied Carlton, Leicestershire-based AR Demolition with a Volvo FH 540 8x4 tag axle tridem.

The truck features a D13K engine that produces 540hp, I-Shift gearbox and single reduction tandem 23-tonne drive axles with differential and cross locks. It is fitted with a cabin specification platform body and a Fassi 545 truck-mounted crane with five extending boom sections.

AR Demolition also specified extra tool lockers for the 5.2 metre wheelbase truck, which comes with a VBG drawbar coupling for the two axle Chieftain drawbar trailer it hauls.

Andrew Thompson, company director at AR Demolition said: "I'm impressed by the vehicle and crane capabilities of our new Volvo FH 540 tridem drawbar combination.

"The platform bodies on the Volvo and trailer will be ideal for shifting our welfare cabins, storage containers and fuel bowsers around various work sites. Additionally, we have a wide range of machine attachments and dust suppression equipment that the truck will also be able to move, whilst the combination's versatility will undoubtedly make it attractive for third party, hire and reward work."
