UK waste haulier adds new tippers to fleet
Crown has welcomed four Volvo FMX 420 8x4 tippers to its fleet with a total of 16 Volvo trucks due to join its operation over the next 18 months.
The new vehicles feature a D13K 420 hp Euro-6 Step E engine, capable of producing 2,100 Nm of torque. They are paired with Thompsons tipper bodywork and driven through Volvo’s 12-speed automatic I-Shift transmission which makes driving easier, safer, and more comfortable.
