New addition to Pickerings 40 strong HGV delivery fleet

Pickerings Leeds Depot have this year received delivery of their first HGV, which is a new addition to our 40 strong HGV delivery fleet. This will help Pickerings continue to provide our customers with a hassle-free logistics service.

We asked our Fleet Director, Kevin Barber, for some more information about the vehicle, and this is what he said:

“The vehicle is a Volvo FM13 Euro 6 engine which offers excellent performance and economy, this is further enhanced by the Volvo I-Shift transmission. The vehicle is fitted with a Fassi F660RA lorry mounted crane to enable portable cabins and building modules to be more easily delivered and off-loaded on customer’s sites.

The Fassi crane has 6 hydraulic extensions that will lift 3100kg at a maximum reach of 16.1 metres. It also comes with a 360 degree continuous slewing rotation with capacity to safely offload over the cab and help overcome site restrictions.

The vehicle comes complete with telematics equipment that allows us to monitor and train our drivers to ensure the vehicle is driven to it optimal performance and the crane comes with a power on demand function that allows the crane to only use fuel when the crane is operated. All this allows Pickerings to decrease fuel consumption and lower our carbon emissions.”
