Aylestone Transport’s New FH-540 show truck majors on safety and payload capability 0

Aylestone Transport’s New FH-540 show truck majors on safety and payload capability

FORS Bronze-accredited Aylestone Transport s latest tractor unit, a stunning Globetrotter-cabbed Volvo FH-540, is equipped with the full suite of safety equipment and driver aids available from the manufacturer. Safety in operation was the prime consideration when specifying the company s new Volvo tractor unit, explains Aylestone Transport s proprietor and director Bodge Ward, before adding. Although we have the highest possible level of additional Volvo safety equipment on the truck and an HMF 1300 crane and Kinshofer hydraulic grab, mounted on the trailer, we are still providing our customer with a 27,000 kg payload. In addition to the legislated requirement for Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS), the FH-540 is also fitted with Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping System, Lane Changing System and Cornering Lights. A Brigade four-camera system with cycle sensors and audible warning is also fitted. The Dennison trailer, to which the Volvo is coupled, is also fitted with a Cycle Minder sensor system. Leicestershire-based Aylestone Transport s latest FH tractor unit is the first the company has taken with the I-Shift Dual Clutch and the second in the fleet to be specified with Volvo Dynamic Steering which Bodge describes as brilliant . The company also opted for the kick-down feature on the I-Shift Dual Clutch. Aylestone Transport operates five Volvo trucks delivering pre-formed concrete products, including kerbs, pavers and sustainable drainage systems, out of Aggregate Industries production site at Bardon, Leicestershire. Achieving the 27,000 kg payload is aided by the fitment of Alcoa Durabrite forged aluminium wheels and specifying no lead on ramps for the Fontaine SP2 fixed fifth wheel. However, there has been no skimping on the spec as the ten extra lights on Kelsa bars, twin air horns, beacons and additional working lights at the rear testify. The cab is equipped with heated and air-conditioned, leather upholstered seats, together with fridge freezer, microwave and television. The chassis mounted side skirts and chequer plate catwalk infill were fitted by SB Components of Wisbech. Supplied by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre East Anglia at Bardon, the convenience of the dealer location played an important part in Aylestone Transport s decision to purchase the latest addition to the 100% Volvo fleet, says Bodge . The truck is on an R&M contract and will be maintained at the Bardon dealership overnight. We have tried both Swedish truck makes, says Bodge , and we prefer the Volvo. The trucks are specified exactly as you want them and the dealer service is marvellous all our trucks are on R&M contracts with them. When it comes to Volvo, all we have to do is put fuel and AdBlue in them and drive away. Our next truck will be a Volvo too, he concludes.
