The two trucks have been carefully specified to provide contrasting examples of payload and fuel efficient solutions available to construction truck operators as part of Volvo Trucks Bodied Stock Programme. By partnering with key bodybuilders the Programme significantly reduces lead times for a range of construction and waste management vehicles. With its higher ground clearance and straight front axles, the 8 4 day cab Volvo FMX, 13-litre, 420hp, X-High (N3G) on the stand conforms to the off-road definition under European Whole Vehicle Type Approval (ECWVTA).

Bodywork on the 5.1 metre wheelbase FMX is a Boweld Taperlite steel tipper and a PM Onboard weighing system is also fitted. The second 8 4 tipper on the stand is an FM 11-litre 410hp on-road High Chassis (N3) with a Wilcox Wilcolite insulated tipper body. The day cab FM, like the FMX on display, also has a 5.1 metre wheelbase.

This truck will also feature all the relevant CLOCS-compliant safety systems for vulnerable road users including a special lower window in the near-side door. Volvo Trucks offers 6 4 and 8 4 configurations with B -ride parabolic, T -ride multi-leaf or rear air suspension, as either off-road (N3G) or on-road (N3) equivalent construction trucks. N3G trucks, designated X-High, have straight front axles.

We are delighted to be exhibiting at Tip-Ex this year, says Volvo Trucks Managing Director Arne Knaben. Volvo as a manufacturer has tremendous experience of working with the construction industry around the world. The values of Volvo Construction Equipment and Volvo Trucks are fully aligned with our customers needs for productive, durable, fuel-efficient machinery and trucks.

We are looking forward to meeting lots of customers, construction truck operators and drivers at the Show. Volvo s latest series of construction trucks, from the FL and FE tipper and mixer, to the FMX Tridem, offer drivers a fantastic place to work and excellent payload capability for the operator, adds John Comer, Volvo Trucks Product Manager UK and Ireland. All Volvo construction truck customers also have access to our superb dealer network who are currently delivering a benchmark 97% first-time MOT pass rate across our 84 Dealerpoints.

explains John.
