Gordon Group is adding 30 new Volvo FMX 8x4 tippers to its fleet, in a planned fleet replacement programme.
The FORS Gold accreditation holders and CLOCS champions took delivery of the latest batch of four trucks in early September. They are equipped with Day cabs, Volvo D13K Euro 6 engines producing 410PS and I-Shift automated manual transmission systems.
Supplied by Dean Harris, truck sales manager at MC Truck & Bus, the FMXs feature Gordon Group’s preferred specification Charlton SuperLite tipper bodies, fitted with a mixture of Binotto or Edbro hydraulic equipment and automatic sheeting systems. The FMXs will be deployed on blue chip construction projects in Central or Greater London and each truck will average just around 30,000 miles per year, due to the capital’s traffic congestion levels.
“We bought one of the first Volvo FMX chassis in 2011 and since then the FMX has proved the perfect choice for our operations,” said Arran Gordon, managing director at Gordon Group.
