Douglas F Mitchell continues love affair with Volvo
Laurencekirk-based, Douglas F Mitchell has added a new Volvo FH tractor to its fleet.
The FH comes with a range-topping Globetrotter XL cab, a 6x2 pusher axle, 4,100mm wheelbase chassis and 540hp.
Inside the cab is a leather interior and Volvo’s Bed Resting Package, coffee-maker and microwave.
Douglas F Mitchell will use its latest Volvo to haul a variety of trailer types on agricultural work.
Supplied by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre North & Scotland in Aberdeen, the truck is on a five-year, Volvo Gold Service Contract.
Founded by Douglas and Rosehelen Mitchell in 1974 with one tipper lorry, Douglas F Mitchell now operates a fleet of ten vehicles, including seven FHs and one FM, which are bolstered by two full-time sub-contractors.
The Mitchell family’s association with Volvo trucks stretches back to 1983, when Douglas bought an ‘A’ registered F7 from Volvo truck dealers James M Forbes (Motors) Ltd in Aberdeen
