New Volvo FMX 13 420hp 8x4 Day Cab Tipper Grab

To complement our range of Volvo FM and FH rigids for hire we are now pleased to be offering the latest construction spec truck from Volvo. The FMX is the most robust truck that Volvo have ever made and in true Volvo fashion it looks every bit a rough terrain conqueror. With excellent ground clearance and bold looks the Volvo FMX really is at home amongst the most rugged and demanding of conditions.

Manoeuvrability is just as easy over rough terrain as it is on the road with Volvo’s dynamic steering delivering superior handling. Our specified mid-level 420hp engine FMX is perhaps one of the best heavy terrain trucks on the market perfectly suited to construction and off road applications.

For this reason we have built a large number of Volvo FMX Tipper Grabs for contract hire as well as a range of crane trucks with several different body and crane combinations available. Call our specialist team today to discuss the new generation of Volvo heavy vehicles available from MV Commercial.

FMX The New Generation of Volvo Heavy Vehicles has arrived


Specifically designed to be the ultimate construction truck, the Volvo FMX meets this target and then some.

At home on virtually all terrains even when under heavy weights, the FMX represents exceptional return on investment.


Meeting emission standards is easy with the new Euro 6 compliant engine thanks to the Selective Catalytic Reduction System. Going green and saving money has never been easier.


Featuring a 425° slewing area, 28kNm slewing torque and long reach, it is no wonder that the Palfinger Epsilon 125l Crane is such a popular choice to be fitted to vehicles in the construction, timber and industrial industries.


With a reputation for performance, durability and value, it is no surprise that Thompson tipper bodies are regarded as some of the best in the UK in a highly competitive market.
