Volvo Trucks Fill WM Donald Vacuum

CIVIL engineering contractor WM Donald has added another Volvo to its fleet; a new FMX 540 Globetrotter, mounted with a triple fan suction excavator. The striking 8×4 Tridem rigid, decked out in the firm’s deep blue livery, will be used to help the Aberdeen based business in its work on major infrastructure projects across the north east of Scotland.
Supplied by Volvo Truck and Bus Centre North & Scotland, the FMX has a nine tonne front axle and is powered by Volvo’s D13K engine producing 540hp and an impressive 2,600Nm of torque.
Ewan Riddoch, MD at WM Donald, said: “In the past we’ve tended to run with a different manufacturer, but we’ve been moving more towards Volvo. Five of the seven trucks we have now are Volvos. The key factors for opting for them this time was a competitive price point, a good relationship with the local dealer and the improved turning circle the Tridem can give us. Also, the bodybuilder was familiar with the FMX chassis so the process of fitting that equipment was straightforward.”
