Volvo Trucks has launched a UK and Ireland market specific low-entry version of its FE middleweight rigid. Designated the FE Low Entry Cab (LEC), the new truck is aimed at the recycling sector as well as meeting the need for ease of access of crews of specialist fire, airport and highways vehicles.
The Volvo FE LEC is configured around a 26 tonne GVW 6×2 rear-steer, tag-axle rigid chassis. Chassis layout is conventional and is available with the standard cab. Ninety five per cent of components are from the standard FE chassis – including key components such as mirrors, windscreen and cab panels.
