Harsh Wet Kits For Hymas ‘Weight Savers’

ONE OF the most iconic UK bulk tipper operators, Yorkshire based Alfred Hymas, has for the first time specified Harsh tractor wet kits. These have now been installed on five new weight saving Volvo FHs.
Optimally configured for maximum productivity, the five new 460hp FH ‘I-Save’ trucks have a smaller and lighter centre axle fitted with 17.5in wheels, a configuration that saves some 200kg over a standard 6×2. Completing their tipper specification, each truck features a Harsh wet kit that includes a compact, side-mounted aluminium oil tank and simplified hose layout in a configuration designed to be as light as possible.
Today’s Alfred Hymas vehicle fleet features over 70 artics employed on an even split between agricultural and quarry work. Looking at the former, director Stewart Hymas said: “We’re working in and out of the docks moving mostly soya, rape seed, maize and feed ingredients, as well as collecting wheat and barley from UK farmers, so obviously the fleet is specified to reflect this type of work.”
