Ten new Volvo FM tractor units have joined the fleet at long-established northern tipper haulage specialists, James Booth (Bolton).

The vehicles have been added as part of a total fleet renewal programme, consisting exclusively of Volvo trucks supplied by Pete Schofield, Customer Solutions Manager at Thomas Hardie Commercials.

FORS Bronze operators, James Booth (Bolton) Ltd. recently renewed its entire fleet with 15 Volvo FMs and three Volvo FH tractor units, but the new arrivals are all FM 6×2 Lite pusher axle Globetrotter-cabbed tractor units with Volvo’s D11K engine rated at 450hp and I-Shift automated transmission systems.

All of the vehicles were specified with 5-year Volvo Gold Service Contracts, guaranteeing 100% uptime.

Sarah J Booth, Managing Director at James Booth (Bolton) said, “Volvo trucks have a long-established presence in our fleet and it is the best brand for us. We specify our vehicles carefully, while monitoring the progress of technology. With the latter, we’ll adjust our vehicle retention periods to suit and embrace any new developments which help maximise operating efficiencies.”
