Road Haulage News and Jobs

Tuesday, 8 December 2020


Heavy plant and equipment hire specialist, AB2K has upgraded its fleet with four new Scania G450 XT Cheesewedge plant bodies supplied by MV Commercial.

The new trucks, three of which are fitted with a Palfinger PK 53002 SH crane, will be used across the company’s varied operations, including civil and rail plant hire throughout Scotland.

John Murphy, Director at AB2K, says: “We have a great relationship with MV Commercial which has spanned over a 10 year period. We know that they can provide us with some of the highest-spec crane vehicles when we need them, and their knowledge within the industry is second to none.”

Each vehicle is built with railway tracks incorporated in the floor of the body allowing rail bogies to be craned straight on, thereby reducing the possibility of any damage when being transported. The trucks are also spec’d with 13.4 tonne drop-in lashing points, extra chain baskets and a full fall arrest system around the bed of the vehicle to protect the operator.

While out on the road, AB2K can utilise MV Commercial’s nationwide support network, with more than 70 approved service locations across the UK and Ireland.

Murphy explained: “An added bonus of dealing with MV Commercial is the aftersales support which is the best we’ve come across. We need a company that offers us a year-round backup service that is available 24/7. And, in the event of an emergency MV Commercial offers us access to specialist replacement vehicles at very short notice.

“In addition, the repair and maintenance package means that we can budget the costs upfront and we don’t have any surprises down the line.”

Part of the Quattro Group, who MV Commercial is also the truck-mounted crane supplier for, AB2K is a leading contractor in the civil engineering, ports, quarrying, rail and energy sectors.
