ASB Transport has taken delivery of two new Volvo FM 8×4 tippers, citing the trucks’ residual value and the fantastic support from the manufacturer’s dealer network as the main reasons for this latest order.

The Nuneaton-based operator supplies vehicles for the aggregates and asphalt industry. It now runs 20 trucks in total, all meeting Euro 6 emissions standards, and 18 of which are Volvos.

Supplied by Richard Moorse, Regional Sales Manager at Volvo Truck and Bus Centre East Anglia, the two new FMs are built on a 5,100mm wheelbase and are powered by Volvo’s Euro 6, D11K engines – producing 460 hp and a top torque of 2,220 Nm.
