Shunter of the Month

Ed Nolloth sent us this picture (below) of a tough-looking Volvo. “I spotted this beast upon a recent visit to Volvo Trucks in Christchurch, New Zealand. Most yard shunters in NZ will commonly be found with a fifth wheel as well as Ringfeder on the rear as this will cover all types of trailer combinations out here. “Hopefully this is worthy of making the cut.” It certainly is, Ed!
