Rock Solid Mixer Hire of Coventry has taken delivery of a Volvo FM 8x4 with B-ride suspension and a 9m3 capacity Putzmeister P9G concrete mixer.
The FM 8x4, supplied by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre East Anglia, includes a mixer control system with remote control and is powered by an 11-litre D11K engine producing 410hp. It is the company’s third new Volvo in the past 12 months, taking its fleet up to 14 trucks.
The Volvo will generally carry out ready-mix jobs within a 25-mile radius of the firm’s base and cover about 35,000km per year.
Bobby Saundh, partner at Rock Solid Mixer Hire, said: “We recently invested in a Danfords batching plant, which has increased our ready-mix capability to approximately 500m3 per day. In order to gain the maximum benefit from this investment we knew an additional high capacity mixer truck would be required for the fleet and the new Volvo FM ticks all the boxes.”
