The Volvo FM tipper represents the larger end of the scale, both in terms of gross vehicle weight and payload capacity. So if you need to move large amounts of material over long distances as efficiently as possible, a vehicle from this range could be suitable.
Second-hand FM tipper trucks can be affordably procured online, bringing the durable chassis, powerful engines and well-designed bodies within the reach of more firms and operators than ever. Recent upgrades to the FM range mean that these modern tippers are safer and easier to drive than ever, even when tight spaces need to be navigated or areas of rough terrain covered.
Drivers should be eager to hop on board a modern FM tipper from Volvo thanks to the range of systems that the manufacturer has created to make their jobs less of a chore. One of the benefits that can be found on recent additions to the FM range is something called Dynamic Steering, which Volvo has created to make managing these large heavy vehicles a bit easier.
Steering can result in mental and physical strain for drivers, but this system improves low-speed handling while also ensuring that the truck is stable at motorway speeds. Fuel consumption can be similarly improved thanks to the combination of Euro 6 engines and the latest software features that allow intelligent cruise control to manage speeds effectively at all times. When these are combined with the built-in navigation functions, an FM tipper can be a surprisingly competent long-haul companion.
Bulk FM tippers with large alloy bodies can deal with aggregate and other loose materials with ease, while tippers with lower-sided steel bodies are reliable and get the job done when carrying loads of all kinds is a necessity. A rollover sheet may be included with used models to keep the rain, wind and snow away from the contents of the body, while a vertical exhaust can also be found on some models to make off-roading in almost any scenario an achievable task. Front-end rams are featured on most 6x4 and 8x4 tippers in this range, so check that the hydraulics are still working slickly with no signs of shakes or stammers.
Tipper bodies can be configured in a number of ways, and this is certainly true if you are looking for a second-hand Volvo FM model, since lots of adaptations for this range have been made over the years both by the manufacturer itself and by third parties. Aside from the obvious differences between day cabs and sleeper cabs, there are both automatic and manual models available, as well as those which feature air conditioning, climate control, sunroofs and sun visors, cranes, beacons, alloy fuel tanks and more components besides. An FM tipper which sounds good on paper but does not match the seller's description when given a first-hand inspection might be worth avoiding. But a well-maintained used model which is priced fairly can give you a good reason to never buy new again. New or second-hand, though, these vehicles are worth the investment.
