Despite only being in service for seven months, the Volvo Hartshorne-supplied trucks are already impressing owner James Waters. "They are constantly in the top six for fuel week in and week out," Waters revealed. The rest of the 60-strong tractor fleet consists of DAF, Mercedes-Benz and Renault units.
All three Volvo's were specified with its 500hp D13K engine and I-Shift gearbox.
Spanning across four generations, BJ Waters is a family business with more than 70 years of experience specialising in tipper operations and hauling hazardous loads.
Waters said that the main reason he opted for Volvo's FH was the brand's "belief in its own products". He added that he was so pleased with his decision and more Volvos are on the way.
