Volvo Tractor Unit - Standard Trucks for Sale (101)

Volvo tractor units have always been extremely popular in the UK – as far back as the F88 in the 1970’s and 1980’s.

Today’s trucks are just as popular and even more iconic.  The top of the range Volvo FH tractor units are amongst the most powerful in the world, swapping the title with fellow Swedes Scania.

With power outputs of 750hp the top-end, 16-litre FH16 Volvo tractor unit is the one that every driver would want. Hard to justify with maximum gross vehicle weights of 44 tonnes in the UK and a country that is not too hilly.

Used Volvo Tractor Units

The Globetrotter cab is present on nearly all Volvo Tractor units – at least it is the case for the FH model – there is also a larger cab, the Globetrotter XL for those truck buyers who spend a lot of nights out in their cabs. The range has developed further and now you can also buy used examples of Volvo tractor units with Globetrotter XXL cabs.

The FM tractor unit range uses a smaller cab and is better suited for more local or high payload operations – although a Globetrotter version of the narrower FM is also available.

£7k+ per Year Fuel Saving from New Volvo FH540

ND Young Transport has calculated its new Volvo FH 540 6x2 tractor unit will save it roughly £7,600 per year in fuel costs versus the truck from a rival manufacturer that its driver was working in before.

New Volvo FH Globetrotter XL after Decade Long Hiatus

Just fancying a change is sometimes enough to get a deal done.
