Resplendent in its all-red livery, PH Winterton & Son’s latest truck is something really special; a one-off hookloader that’s specified for shifting sawdust and wood shavings. “Because the product we’re carrying isn’t heavy, we don’t need an eight wheeler,” said Adam Moores, Winterton’s operations manager. “Therefore, the ideal chassis is a long wheelbase 6x2 which is both lighter, less expensive and more manoeuvrable than an 8x4.” This new Harsh/Volvo truck has many interesting features, offering 26 tonnes lift capacity, making light work of loading any weight or type of container. It also features a 500hp engine that makes for good progress working with a triaxle drawbar trailer.
