Rock Solid Mixer Hire of Coventry has a Volvo FM 8×4 with B-ride suspension and a 9m3 capacity Putzmeister P9G concrete mixer with Ergonic Mixer Control system with remote control, the first Volvo with this system in the UK.
“We recently invested in a Danfords batching plant which has increased our ready-mix capability to approximately 500m3 per day,” says Bobby Saundh, partner, Rock Solid Mixer Hire.
“ We knew an additional high capacity mixer truck would be required for the fleet and the new Volvo FM ticks all the boxes. We can run up to the 32-tonne GVW with 8m3 on board, which gives us a significant daily throughput.”
The newest addition is the company’s third new Volvo in the past 12-months and sees the overall fleet grow to 14 trucks. “We have a mix of both volumetric and ready-mix bodies and the majority of our trucks are Volvo FMs,” Saundh says.
