Get winter is on its way
Its that time of year again, wrap up warm
WITH ATTENTION naturally turning to the impending winter, our choice for the best used truck this week is a 2007-built Volvo FLE280 with a gritter body.
The 57-plate, 18-tonner is powered by a Euro-5 7.2-litre driveline and delivers 280hp. It is fitted with a six-speed manual transmission, a day cab and has the full local authority specification. It's arrived straight from a council and has 87,000km on the clock.
It comes with two demountable bodies built by Econ Engineering, in Ripon, North Yorkshire; a Zero C 6m3 gritter body and three-way tipper.
There is a plough blade to go on the front of the truck as well. The vendor is AWL Trucks, based at Ilkeston, Derbyshire, which has valued it at £29,950 (plus VAT).
This is a particularly strong specification. The Volvo FL280 is a robust truck, and a favourite among local authorities for the more arduous and demanding work.
The three-way tipper body makes it a versatile vehicle that can be used for other roadside operations.
