Scottish operator Stoddart Crane Hire has a new fleet flagship – a 150-tonne Volvo FH16 750 6×4 tractor unit. “We need every ounce of the new Volvo FH16’s 750hp power output, as some of our combinations run at 40 tonnes unladen,” declares David Stoddart, managing director at Stoddart Crane Hire, based in the Highland village of Muir of Ord.
The new FH16 750 has been specified with Volvo’s I-Shift automated crawler gearbox. A list of interior cab options includes Volvo’s Drive 16++ package alongside full leather trims, with a fridge,
microwave oven and TV preparation. The flagship also gets Alcoa Dura-Bright alloy wheels shod with Michelin tyres.
Story of the month wins this limited-edition 1:50-scale Volvo FH Globetrotter XL 6×2 with three-axle fridge trailer, all in Penfro Peche livery. The model, worth £147, comes courtesy of model vehicle specialist Search Impex.
