D Hughes Demolition upgrades to Volvo FMX 420

Manchester-based D Hughes Demolition has added a new Volvo FMX 420 8×4 rigid to its fleet following a decade’s worth of sterling service from an older FMX it replaces.

Supplied by Thomas Hardie Commercials, the new FMX 420 truck was acquired in rapid time after picking up a cancelled order. It comes mounted with a Hiab Multilift hookloader body and VBG drawbar coupling.

Complete with a striking crimson red pearl livery, the new truck’s workload will see it moving stone and cobble from the company’s own stone yard, as well as transporting wood, waste and scrap from demolition sites to merchants, and helping to safely dispose of asbestos.

It is powered by a 420hp D13K Euro-6 engine, capable of producing 2,100 Nm of torque. Expected to be in service for at least the next four years, it is also equipped with a 12-speed I-Shift transmission which makes driving easier, safer and more comfortable and can also deliver improved fuel economy.

Its day cab benefits from the latest design offering superior comfort, with distinctive Vshaped LED headlamps with headlamp protectors, new antislip footsteps and a striking digital dashboard display.
