Neil Corner, an independent contractor haulier has just taken delivery of a new 6-wheeler Volvo FM11 ready mixed concrete truck, one of 17 new Volvo vehicles with Hymix mixer unit to be branded in CEMEX livery and delivering concrete across the country on behalf of the company.
Representing a significant investment by the company, Charlie Stanford National Fleet Liaison Manager, has worked closely with engineers and mechanics at both Volvo and Hymix to produce one of the lightest and most efficient vehicles on the market while offering the driver greater comfort and ease of handling.
The new Volvo FM11 with Hymix P2 mixer unit includes the latest technology including a fully automatic gearbox, 11 litre 370HP engine for greater economy, lower N3 chassis design to give greater visibility, nearside foot-well window fitted in production and more storage facilities for the driver. The Hymix intergrated mixer unit has electronic CANbus controls both in the cab and the back of the truck.
Adaptive brake control lane departure and advanced forward collision warning systems come as standard.
“Although it is early days, this truck is fantastic to drive. Everything is designed to make life easier from the lighter vehicle, the automatic gears and the hands free phone. I’ve been driving concrete trucks since 1987 and collecting and delivering concrete couldn’t be easier,” comments Neil Corner.
Neil is one of 350 CEMEX independent haulier contractors and works out of Letchworth plant.
