Used Volvo Hookloaders for Sale

2.5 Average

A Volvo FM hookloader has to be able to handle very heavy loads, which is not a unique attribute in itself, since this is something all trucks must offer. But the attribute which sets these vehicles apart from the rest of the market is of course the hook loading mechanism mounted on the rear, enabling a variety of containers to be lifted on without the use of additional equipment.

The Volvo FM range is already packed with models that are easy to operate, and its array of 8x4 hookloaders which weigh in a 32 tonnes are worthy contenders in this competitive marketplace. Buying used will let you choose a truck that fits your specifications and budget.

Many of the second-hand Volvo FM hookloader trucks that are sold today will come with the standard body to accommodate rigid containers, making them suitable for use in waste management and construction.

Some FM bodies have been adapted to allow for vehicle transport, with a hookloader mechanism also proving to be a vital feature here. The exact parameters of the loader must be looked at before you make a purchase, because the type of container or payload that an FM truck will be able to tackle can vary. It is not just about the maximum weight that the body can cope with, but also the length of the skip that can safely be loaded on to it.

Volvo has redesigned the FM range regularly enough that modern hookloaders are loaded with the latest equipment to ensure fuel efficiency, driver comfort and safety. The dynamic steering system featured on later FM hookloaders means that drivers can adjust the course of the truck or turn it around in a tight spot without over-exerting themselves in the process. This lightness of touch minimises fatigue while ensuring that drivers are alert and engaged over long distances.

A Volvo FM hookloader is typically set up to cope with short- to medium-distance haulage, which is why you will often find used models which feature day cabs. Cabs can come equipped with comfort features as well as driving assists such as parking sensors, reversing cameras and of course cruise control. More recent models feature I-Shift gearbox technology which is managed by software designed to deliver optimal levels of fuel consumption, reducing costs by up to five per cent.

Volvo’s own diesel engines power the FM hookloader range, and more recent models feature Euro 4 and Euro 5 compliant power plants, which again can have a big impact on fuel use and emissions. If you choose an older unit, then chances are that the engine will not be quite as efficient, although the upfront costs will be lower, which can help to balance this out.

The strain put on the hydraulic rams integrated with the hookloader mechanisms on a Volvo FM vehicle can lead to wear and tear over time. So if you want to buy a second-hand example, then it is important to check that all the rams are operating correctly, as maintenance costs may be steep if replacement is necessary.
