Swanley, Kent-based Mark Luck Transport has taken delivery of four tippers - all Thompson Loadmaster bodies mounted on Volvo FMX chassis – bringing its fleet size up to 45.

Three of the new intake are standard 8x4s, while the fourth is a Tridem. Two of the trucks have day cabs, while two are sleepers.

Mark Luck, company director, said: “For our rigid tippers, the body has to be a Loadmaster - we’ve bought Thompsons bodies and only Thompsons bodies now for years and years. For chassis, today we’re pretty much a Volvo fleet, because when you combine a Loadmaster with an FMX you really do have the ultimate in performance and rugged reliability.

“As for the individual specifications, the Tridem is our second such example - chiefly thanks to its greatly improved manoeuvrability, which is a real bonus when working in congested urban environments,” he added.
