Clewley Sweepers of Macclesfield has taken delivery of a Volvo FL 4x2 rigid from Thomas Hardie Commercials, Trafford Park.
The 16-tonne GVW truck features a Johnston Sweepers VT651 body and joins a 15-strong fleet at the company.
The company’s first-ever truck was a Volvo FL6 purchased in 2009 when Clewley Sweepers was started by managing director Mark Clewley and family friend Paul Blaylock, who remains as operations director.
“The Volvo FL6 has been a beautiful wagon,” says Clewley.
“It now has over 440,000kms on the clock, yet it is still out working most days.
"The experience we’ve had with it definitely influenced our decision when it came to purchasing the new Volvo FL."
The new Volvo FL with rear leaf suspension and a Comfort cab with single bunk is powered by a six-cylinder Volvo D8K engine producing 280hp.
Clewley Sweepers's customers include many household names operating in the construction, house building and road maintenance sectors.
