Arriving Soon: New Volvo FH with 65T Palfinger Crane

Ferguson Transport & Shipping will take delivery of a new Volvo FH with a 65T Palfinger Crane.

The outfit specifications are: Volvo FH 460 6×2, twin wheeled tag axle with a 3.4m wheelbase and the new style Volvo HD bumper. Fitted out with a Palfinger PK65002-SH, it will come with five hydraulic extensions giving a total reach of 13.7m; see diagram below for further lifting details.  There will also be a 4m long demountable body fabricated for it, which can be attached to the unit through foldaway twist-locks.

In addition to the fifth wheel, which will allow the unit to connect to various types of trailers – a VBG coupling will also be fixed to the rear of the chassis, to enable it to tow drawbar trailers.  This will improve manoeuvrability for the harder to reach areas, without having to reduce the carrying capacity. In essence the tractor unit could then be used as a wagon and drag.

Kevin Ferguson, Operation & Support Coordinator of Ferguson Transport & Shipping said: “We are looking forward to this new mobile hire crane to join our modern fleet of vehicles. By continuing to revise and update our expanding logistics fleet, means that we can provide the best possible service to our customers.”
