Volvo FH16-750 Tridem 8×4, provides pure muscle power

UK based remediation and recycling specialist, has taken delivery of a new Volvo FH16-750 Tridem 8×4 in order to meet the demands of transporting its increasingly large fleet of plant between sites.

The top specification Volvo with all-round air suspension and steered pusher axle will be responsible for deliveries nationwide.

Plant and Operations Manager, Craig Hore says: “With gross vehicle weights already exceeding 100-tonnes and expectations that, with new plant investments, this could creep higher still, pure muscle is a consideration that we had to factor in.”

“The D16K engine producing 750hp at between just 1600 and 1800rpm and delivering peak torque of 3550Nm at between 950 and 1400rpm makes this truck something special and just what we need for ever heavier loads.” Added Craig.

“The incredible power is transmitted through the Volvo I-Shift automated transmission with enhanced software for off-road driveability and starting, which in conjunction with the ultra-low 32:1 crawler gear provides exceptional pull from stationary. I think this truck future proofs us for the next three years,” he concluded.
