AGRICULTURAL and rural supplies specialist, Carrs Billington has put a new Volvo FH rigid and drawbar trailer into service. Supplied by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre North & Scotland, the 44 tonne FH 6×2 rigid combination will be based at the company’s Milnathort Country Store and supply depots in Perth and Kinross.
Featuring a fixed lifting tag axle on its 5,600mm wheelbase chassis, the driver at Carrs Billington’s Milnathort depot, Keny Hanley, opted for Volvo’s D13K engine rated at 500hp. Behind the straight six power plant is a 12 speed I-Shift automated gearbox, driving a Volvo RSS1356 single reduction axle with a ratio of 2.79:1.
Volvo’s Drive Plus and Living Single Bed packages are included in the Globetrotter cab’s specification alongside a high power audio system. The front steel, rear air suspended rigid will spend around 99% of its operating time, as a 44 tonne drawbar combination.
