On the lookout: Low mileage Volvo FMX beavertail from Geoff Sipson

FMX beavertail

For 30 years, Geoff Sipson Commercials has specialised in sourcing and selling unusual commercial vehicles in Coventry.

Here we found a 2016 (16-plate) Volvo FMX 420, with 50,000km on the clock.

This 8x4 is powered by a Euro-6 420hp engine, through an I-Shift automatic gearbox. It is on a wheelbase of 5.15m and has spring suspension and a 26ft beavertail with flip-toe hydraulic ramps. Also fitted is a Superwinch 18.0 electric winch, an all-round camera system and FORS-spec side scanners.

The day cab is finished in blue, with a red body, and the paint and bodywork are in excellent condition – as is the interior. Half of the interior is leather, it has Bluetooth and an audio system, steering wheel controls, air conditioning and electric windows and mirrors.

It is MoT’d until July 2019, has had two previous owners, and comes without a service history.

On the lookout: One owner beavertail from LC Vehicle Hire

LC Vehicle Hire beavertail

LC Vehicle Hire is a family-owned business established in 1957. Last year it presented more than 1,000 vehicles for MoT with a pass rate of 98.2%.

We found a 2015 (15-plate) DAF FALF55.250, with 145,000km on the clock. The 18-tonne truck is powered by a Euro-6 engine through an AS-Tronic gearbox, delivering 250hp.

With rear ECAS air suspension, this truck is fitted with a 28ft beavertail body and hydraulic rear ramps.

It also has fall arrest and lashing rings with a Warrior DC24v remote control winch, roof beacons and front and rear strobes and a reversing camera.

Owned and run from new by LC Vehicle Hire, the truck comes with a full service history, a new MoT and a 28-day warranty.
