How does the Volvo FMX Tridem measure up against a conventional 8-legger?

Opinion: Mark Luck director of Mark Luck Ltd

“We are quite an old established company. I am now the third generation and run the business with my father Ken. We have seen a lot of changes over the years, but we still stick to what we know best."


“We buy all of our trucks and keep them for a long time, often most of their working life. We also maintain them in-house because we feel it is cheaper in the long run and gives us greater control. As a result, we run a mixture of brand new and older trucks. Our oldest is a 1999 X-registered Daf CF380 8-wheeler with well over 900,000km on the clock."


“Volvo has figured in the fleet for many years, and we find the FM a very strong truck. It stands up to heavy work very well, and they don’t deteriorate with age like most other makes. They are expensive to buy new, but cheaper in the long run".
