Yorkshire business, K A Anderson Metal Recyclers Ltd has recently put its third Volvo truck into operation – an FL 4x2 rigid is equipped with Harsh skip loader body.

K A Anderson’s return to the Volvo brand was prompted by the sales, service and back-up levels offered by its local Crossroads Truck and Bus Ltd dealerpoint in Boroughbridge, North Yorkshire.

“Our company policy is to support the local business community,” declares Keith Anderson, Owner at KA Anderson Metal Recyclers Ltd. “We have operated Volvo trucks in the past and recently returned to the brand. Our three new Volvos are performing well and the drivers find them easy to use.”

Supplied by Steve Hinde, Area Sales Manager at Crossroads Truck and Bus Ltd, K A Anderson’s third Volvo truck features a 3,800mm wheelbase chassis powered by a Volvo D8K engine producing a maximum 250hp and matched to a six-speed I-Sync automated gearbox with Power Take-Off (PTO) which drives a Harsh skip body.

“The truck is completely all-new for us, as we’ve recently moved over to Harsh equipment. Once again, the reason behind this was local service, as Harsh’s headquarters are in nearby York,” Keith adds.

K A Anderson’s Volvo trucks are all supplied with five-year Volvo Service Contracts and these works are carried out in the late evening to minimise disruption levels to daily operations.

“The evening drop-offs work well at Crossroads Truck and Bus and we collect our trucks the next morning. We have no fixed vehicle retention periods, but monitor how each performs. That said we keep most of our trucks for around seven or eight years,” Keith concludes.
