2015 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3240 8x4 tipper - Used Truck Deal of the Day
This 2015 automatic Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3240 8x4 tipper, from MV Commercial in Airdrie, is our used truck deal of the day.
With a mere 71,559km on the clock, this 32 tonner is very nearly factory fresh. It’s been fitted with a Thompsons Loadmaster steel tipper body with a Binotto ram, an automatic tailgate and a Shurco sheeting system.
The day cab has cruise control, air conditioning and a roof-mounted warning beacon bar.
MV Commercial will provide this vehicle with a brand new MoT when purchased. Its price is available on application.
Fox Bros convoy moves tonnes with full-fleet convoy
Fox Brothers used its entire fleet to undertake an ambitious end of year job, transporting road planings from a site in Liverpool back to its own sites in Blackpool for recycling.
The convoy of 66 vehicles – led by the company’s flagship Peterbilt and accompanied by everything from concrete mixers to road sweepers – departed early on 23 December to commemorate late company boss Harold Fox.
The contract, to move around 5,000 tonnes of planings, had only been secured in the previous week and was initially planned with 10 trucks at a time over several days. However, after speaking with the customer, Fox Brothers successfully ran its entire fleet with all of the load-carrying vehicles performing multiple trips until 9pm that night, when more than 3,500 tonnes had been transported.
