Six-pack for AB2K
AB2K, a Scottish provider of heavy plant vehicles, is upgrading its fleet with six new Volvo FH16 750 Globetrotter XL tractor units. The new arrivals include one STGO Category 3 6x4 double drive tractor unit for gross combination weights of up to 120 t, and five STGO Category 2 6x2 tag axle tractor units for operation at up to 80 t. The new medium chassis height tractor units replace four older FH16s and a pair of trucks previously supplied by a rival brand.
AB2K expects the new trucks to cover up to 120,000 km a year and be on the road between five and seven days a week, supporting its work within the civil engineering, ports, quarrying, rail and energy sectors. (ben)
