Arnold Plant Hire upgrades to VOLVO FH Globetrotter 8 x 2 rigid

Friday, January 14th, 2022

Stockport-based Arnold Plant Hire has replaced an older six-wheeler in its fleet with a new Volvo FH 420 Globetrotter 8×2 rigid, featuring an electro-hydraulic steered rear axle to maximise manoeuvrability when delivering to sites with limited access.

The truck’s arrival completes a Volvo hat-trick for Arnold Plant Hire, with the new FH replacing a competitor marque and joining two existing Volvo tractor units within the company’s three-strong truck fleet.

Jason Caudwell, Plant Manager at Arnold Plant Hire, says: “The new Volvo FH ticks all the boxes; our drivers work incredibly hard, so looking after them and giving them great trucks is really important for us as a business.

“They typically have a few nights away each month, but it’s also about the time spent on site waiting to deliver plant, as well as taking rest breaks. By choosing the FH Globetrotter cab, we can be confident we are giving them a great environment to work and relax in, no matter where they have to deliver to.”

Arnold Plant Hire is using the truck to support a growing fleet of more than 400 items of plant and machinery, which is predominantly hired for operation within the construction, recycling and waste sectors, as well as in support of general industry.

This latest truck to join the fleet will carry plant up to and including 14-tonne excavators, and is expected to cover approximately 40,000 miles per annum.
