Monaghan's new truck was supplied by Damian Kerin, New Truck Sales Executive at Dennison Commercials.
The new truck will be used to transport a variety of specialist loads ranging from heavy-duty quarry equipment and excavators to transformers and generators, across the UK from Monaghan's Northern Ireland Headquarters.
Stephen Monaghan Managing Director at Monaghan Freight, says: "We've always had an excellent relationship with Volvo Trucks & so it was right at the top of our list when the time came to bring a new vehicle into the fleet."
"Given the specialist loads we work with and the sheer weight involved, all our trucks must deliver standard-setting driving performance, manoeuvrability and comfort. We're pleased to say that the Volvo FH easily delivers on all these fronts. It is the ideal product for our business."
The new FH is powered by a D13K, Euro 6 diesel engine producing 540Hp and a peak torque of 2,600Nm. Power is delivered through Volvo's automated 12-speed I-Shift Gearbox, designed to deliver improved fuel economy. To ensure its drivers a clear view of the road, Monaghan Freight has also opted for a Visibility+ package. This includes the manufacturer’s distinctive V-Shaped LED running lights, electrically heated main and wide-angle mirrors, and headlamps which automatically adjust to ambient light conditions.
Kitted out with a full leather interior, Dura Bright alloy wheels, & Monaghan's striking black and white company livery. In the Globetrotter cab, the driver is treated to Volvo’s Drive++ package, adding an array of creature comforts such as fully electronic air conditioning with carbon filter and sun, mist and air quality sensors, dual armrests on both driver and passenger seats, and an adjustable steering wheel with neck-tilt.
