Ringway Goes For Low Entry Tipper Grabs

RINGWAY has added three new Volvo FE 6×2 rigid trucks to its expansive fleet, with low-entry cabs to improve the safety of vulnerable road users as well as providing a better working environment for its drivers. The highway maintenance specialist will use the 26 tonne crane equipped tippers on a variety of contracts in busy urban areas across England.
Chris Forrest, fleet and plant operations manager at Ringway said: “In total we have in the region 2,000 assets in our UK-wide fleet, ranging from small vans up to 44 tonne tractor units.
“We use a variety of manufacturers and the reason we opted for Volvo again was down to the low-entry cabs available on the FE tipper grabs. They needed to be Direct Vision Standard compliant for working in London. The low entry cabs are also better for the drivers themselves as it’s easier and safer for them to get in and out.”
