First Volvos for McGovern

19 Nov 12 H McGovern & Son Plant Hire has bought its first Volvo machines, in the shape of two A25F articulated haulers for a muck shifting contract.

Based near Heathrow airport, McGovern specialises in muckshifting. A recently-won contract award required articulated haulers meeting the latest Stage IIIB emission requirements.

The Volvo A25F satisfy the emissions regs with an electronically controlled, six cylinder 235hp turbo charged Volvo V-ACT diesel engine.

With a carrying capacity of 24 tonnes and heaped capacity of 15m³, the Volvo A25F has a maximum speed of 53kph. The trucks supplied to McGovern have the optional cantilever tailgate fitted for maximum load retention.
