Longthorne refreshes fleet

Haulier Longthorne of Hebden has bought three Volvo FH 6×2 tractor units and two FM 8X4 rigid trucks from Crossroads Truck and Bus. The tractor units were specified with the 13-litre D13K engine producing 540hp and up to 2600Nm of torque.

Longthorne“Our relationship with Volvo and the Crossroads dealership dates back to the 1960s when our father, Ken took delivery of a Volvo F86,” said Mark Longthorne, manager of Longthorne. “Throughout the years the support and level of service we’ve received from Crossroads and Volvo has been second-to-none.”

“Whenever we buy new trucks we always do so in conjunction with our drivers as they’re the ones that will be in them each day. Volvo is always their first choice.”
