The first of the new Volvo FM range on British roads has gone into service.

This first example is a 6x4 tipper, generously specified with a 13-litre 500hp engine and I-Shift transmission.

Other features include a Wilcox aggregate body with rollover sheeting system, and a Kelsa roof light bar incorporating Lazer Lamps’ latest Triple-R 1000 LED units, which now feature integrated amber beacons with 16 different flash patterns.

The FM’s lucky owner is Tarmac sub-contractor Jonathan Hardy of Gowerton, near Swansea, and the truck was supplied by Pembrokeshire Volvo Trucks dealer Mansel Davies and Son Garages.
