/ The Power Transmission division of Balfour Beatty Power Construction has added two Leyland Daf FAV 45.150 4x4s to its all-wheel-drive fleet.
The 11.6 tonne trucks, derivatives of the Leyland-built fourtonne military medium mobility vehicles, have a 6.79-tonne payload capability but axle ratings of 5.0 tonnes front, 7.5 tonnes rear give considerable loading latitude.
Equipped with steel dropside bodies and Hiab hydraulic cranes, the vehicles, with permanent four-wheel drive and inter-axle diff locks will be used to haul parts, equipment and mobile living quarters to remote areas.
