Rutherford-based carrier, Goldsprings Heavy Haulage, has taken delivery of a new 700 horsepower Volvo FH.
The Hunter Valley operation recently added the new prime mover under an individualised service agreement.
Goldsprings Heavy Haulage has been in pursuit of maintaining higher road speeds to enhance the suitability of its specialised application which is moving oversize and ultra-heavy equipment across Australia.
For the better part of three decades the business has provided solutions for customers by expertly navigating the sometimes tricky topographical challenges of NSW with its mountain climbs, hilly descents and vast distances.
Torque multiplication and traction offered by Volvo’s I-Shift crawler transmission technology is an advantage in these conditions.
Rated to 180 tonnes gross combination mass given the tasks required of it, the Volvo FH also comes multi-speed reverse and hub reduction.
JT Fossey Trucks helped facilitate the delivery.
