New Volvo FH Is Solid Investment For HR Davies12 August 2016

HR Davies of Tredegar, south-east Wales, has taken delivery of the company s first new Volvo truck, an FH-540, 8×4 concrete mixer.

Supplied by Truck and Bus Wales & West, the truck has a 7.5m capacity P8000-Series Hymix concrete mixer and is financed through Volvo Financial Services. It has gone into operation on HR Davies contract with Hope Construction.

The new Volvo FH is powered by a 13-litre, D13K engine producing 540bhp and up to 2,600Nm of torque at between 1,000 and 1,450 rpm.

HR Davies managing director Haulfryn Davies says he realised how affordable a new truck was, with Volvo s finance package: What s more, with a new truck, I could get the exact specification to suit me and the business.

The Volvo FH Globetrotter gives me plenty of room and storage space. What s more, it s all in a package that s less than 4 metres high, which was imperative due to loading height constraints.

He adds: With the I-Shift automated transmission and the torque that s available, this truck ticks all the boxes.
