New haulers leave firm in the Pink

TWO further Volvo A25G articulated haulers have been added to the Ken Pink Plant Hire fleet in Staverton, Gloucestershire. 

The machines replace a pair of older Volvo A25Gs and join a third truck purchased last year, along with a 38-tonne Volvo EC380E excavator.

The A25G articulated hauler can carry 25-tonnes with a heaped capacity of 15.3m³. Both machines are powered by Stage IV Volvo V-ACT six-cylinder engines, developing 318 net hp. 

Purpose built by Volvo, the engine is matched to the Volvo drive train, featuring in-house designed and manufactured transmission, drop box and heavy-duty axles. The addition of outboard wet disc brakes is said to ensure the best use of power and torque is available, even in tough working conditions.
