The latest of two new Volvo FM-330 6×2 rear-steer Rear End Loaders to enter service with leading Manchester recycling and waste management company Fresh Start Waste Services, has been named after World and Multiple British Arm-Wrestling Champion ‘Agy G’.
Fresh Start Waste Services have been sponsoring World Championship Gold medal winner Agy Gorzynska for three years and Chief Operating Officer Peter Cooke reports that the company is delighted with the overwhelmingly positive media and social media coverage that the deal has generated.
The new 3.9 metre wheelbase FMs were supplied by Thomas Hardie Commercials at Trafford Park and are fitted with Volvo’s 11-litre diesel rated at 330hp and I-Shift automated gearboxes and the specification includes Volvo’s Load Indicator and medium height chassis for improved ground clearance.
Both trucks are equipped with Farid T23 (23 cubic metre capacity) rear-loading compactor bodywork and join Fresh Start Waste’s 30-strong fleet of specialist waste collection vehicles used to collect trade and commercial waste from businesses across North West England.
Peter Cooke explains that Fresh Start Waste returned to Volvo vehicles for this purchasing round after an absence of almost 10 years, thanks to the competitive price, the 7-year Gold Repair & Maintenance Contract and the customer service levels by saying, “Volvo is a proven, reliable product and we have had good service from the dealer, Thomas Hardie Commercials.”
