I'Anson takes a very different Volvo 8x4

Published to the CV Show website on

Masham-based animal feed merchant I'Anson Bros Ltd has taken a Volvo 8x4 'tridem' for bulk delivery work.  The truck looks like a normal 6x4 with a fourth and steering axle added behind its double-drive bogie.  The truck's three rear axles have air suspension, with twin tyres on the two drive axles.  Both front and rear steering axles run on single tyres.  The firm says this layout gives traction, manoeuvrability and a better payload than a conventional 6x4 or 8x4 arrangement.  The new truck has Priden blower bodywork and will carry 35 tonnes more a week than I'Anson's three-axle trucks.  Volvo dealer Crossroads Commercials did the deal.
