Welcome to Laurie Dealer's used truck of the week. Each week our man inside the used truck trade picks out a truck or trailer from CM's online classified list. This week it's a Volvo FH13
This week's best used truck is a 2010-registered Volvo FH13 tractor.
It is a 6x2 Euro-5 truck with the 12.8-litre D13C engine, which produces 460hp and 2,300Nm of torque. This truck, KU60 FLP, has the 12-speed I-Shift transmission.
Inside the Globetrotter XL cab there is a bespoke red and grey leather trim, twin bunks and air-conditioning.
The truck has covered 378,000kms, and there is a full Volvo Trucks service history.
The FH with the Globetrotter XL cab is a flagship truck, even though the FH has emerged as a burgeoning fleet option thanks to the higher residuals it can command compared with the FM. Despite that dilution, it remains a
strong, viable truck with a loyal following. Speak to industry experts and they all agree that it tends to creep under the radar for many operators and owner-drivers.
Perhaps they should look again.
