AB2K expands fleet with new Scania vehicles

HEAVY plant and hire specialist AB2K has added four new Scania G450 XT Cheesewedge plant bodies to its fleet.

Supplied by MV Commercial, three of the new trucks are fitted with a Palfinger PK 53002 SH crane. The vehicles will be used across the company’s operations, including civil and rail plant hire throughout Scotland.

Each vehicle is built with railway tracks incorporated in the floor of the body, which allows rail bogies to be craned straight on, reducing the possibility of damage when being transported. The trucks are also specified with 13.4-tonne drop-in lashing points, extra chain baskets and a full fall arrest system around the bed of the vehicle to protect the operator.

John Murphy, director at AB2K, said, “We have a great relationship with MV Commercial which has spanned over a 10 year period. We know that they can provide us with some of the highest-spec crane vehicles when we need them, and their knowledge within the industry is second to none.”
