Paul Chapman & Sons
Paul Chapman & Sons has added a new flagship Volvo FH16 750 Globetrotter XL to its fleet, one of the first new model 8x4 Tridem tractor units to hit the road in the UK. The Derbyshire based crushing and screening contractors has paired the truck, featuring a reinforced bogie for gross combination weights of 100 tonnes plus, with a four-axle Nooteboom trailer to transport heavy-duty construction machinery to sites around the country. Matthew Crofts, MD at Paul Chapman & Sons, said: “This new truck replaces an older model FH16 650 6x4 that was trouble free and very reliable. We have a lot of Volvo construction equipment, and we get great feedback on the product. So, we were always going to return to Volvo for this new flagship truck.” Supplied by Hartshorne Motor Services, the high-spec FH16 is painted in Volvo’s striking Veiled Thistle Pearl launch colour.
