Small and mighty! The UK’s first Volvo FM Dual-Clutch

Burcombe Haulage of Saltash, Cornwall has put a 500hp FM Globetrotter into service fitted with the I-Shift
Dual-Clutch gearbox. Stuart Wilkie, Burcombe Haulage transport manager, explains: “We operate an existing Volvo FH fitted with I-Shift Dual-Clutch and know it shortens journey times; many gearchanges are required when crossing the hills of Cornwall and Devon on night trunks.”
The lower, narrower cab of the FM is ideal for the numerous tight, tree-lined roads of the South West on day shift, so it really is the ideal vehicle for the job.
