ELGIN BASED, MLG Transport has put its first Volvo truck into operation. Supplied by Volvo’s Inverness dealer point, the FH tractor unit is equipped with a tyre pressure control system and will predominately be used for the company’s round timber transport operations.

Opting for Volvo’s Globetrotter cab on a 6×2 rear steer, tag axle chassis, MLG Transport’s new arrival is powered by Volvo’s D13K engine producing 500hp, coupled to a 12 speed I-Shift automated transmission system. The hydraulically steered tag axle and drive axle are both fitted with a Tireboss tyre pressure control system, which provides eight different pressure settings for either on or off road works.

The FH also features a Jost JSK fifth wheel, hydraulic kit and extra chequer plate chassis infills.
