Harringtons Builders has taken delivery of a new Volvo FMX 460 8x4 with Thompsons Loadmaster Lite tipper body.

Specification includes a hydraulic AutoLoc tailgate, VWS weighing system, flip-over Shurco sheet, sideguard warning panels, and extra lighting to the side panels and rear posts. It is also fitted with Harsh K110 underfloor tipping gear which ensures good stability for on- and off-road sites. 

Company director Tony Harrington, said: “Our business is all about quality, so we have to demonstrate that at every opportunity and in everything that we do. The new tipper is a rolling advert for our company, so it needs to look the best and be the best when it’s out working. Achieving ever greater performance, reliability and safety are the real yardsticks in how we run our business.” 

The cab has a Kelsa lightbar mounted with chrome air horns and six spot lamps, as well as stainless steel mirror guards and flashing warning lights in the front grille. Inside, there’s a full leather interior and fridge. 

Harrington added: “My father grew this business from scratch with an absolute dedication to sheer hard work. We continue to prosper by delivering quality results based on our experience, teamwork and a 100% reliable service.”

Thompsons joint managing director, Scott Burton, said: “Harringtons Builders is another great example of the huge contribution that Irish companies have made to the UK’s civil engineering and construction industries over the last 50 years. We’ve worked with the Harringtons since the mid-1990s and are thus delighted to have been able to deliver this latest model, and wish them  every success and years of happy ownership.”
