Countrywide Farmers harvests new Volvo FHs

  • 30 May 2014
  • By Ashleigh Wight

Outdoor clothing and farming equipment supplier Countrywide Farmers has taken delivery of two new Volvo FH 500 6×2 tractor units for retail deliveries.

Both trucks are fitted with Globetrotter XL cabs and Volvo’s I-Shift gearbox and have been supplied by Truck and Bus Wales and West on a Gold repair and maintenance contract.

Drivers of the new FHs will also take part in a two day driver development programme, supplied by the dealership.

The new additions will support the firm’s retail operation, which involves picking up goods from its distribution centre and delivering them to stores.

Operations and compliance manager Darren Moor said: “The dealer network coverage and aftermarket support at a local level played a major part in our decision to buy the trucks.”

The trucks join Countrywide Farmers’ Euro-5 FH and FL units, which are used for tanker operations. The FH is coupled with 22,000kg capacity tankers, manufactured by Lakeland Tankers, while the FL chassis is fitted with a Lakeland Tankers 8,000kg capacity body.
