Volvo trucks are robustly constructed and sensibly designed, which are two things that help to make its tippers a top choice for many organisations and commercial operators. Tippers cannot be anything less than tough if they are to take on tasks in the construction, agriculture and waste industries. And this Swedish manufacturer makes units that will satisfy the needs of drivers who regularly tackle large loads in unforgiving environments. From nimble 7.5 tonne tippers to the all-conquering 32 tonne alternatives, Volvo’s range is packed with choice, especially if you are looking to buy a used model rather than paying for a new equivalent. And with competitive specifications, efficient engines and well-appointed cabs, there are lots of benefits to owning a Volvo tipper truck.
Volvo’s heavy-duty FM tippers occupy the upper echelons of the market in terms of weight, payload capacity and technology. Front-end hydraulic rams lift steel bodies elegantly and quickly, while Euro IV and V engines sip at fuel rather than guzzling it, allowing short- or long-haul trips to be completed at a lower cost that you might imagine. Sleeper cabs and day cabs are available on various models in this range, while extras such as reversing camera systems, air conditioning and digital tachographs are also quite easy to find on the used market. The 8x4 axle configuration gives the Volvo FM tippers a planted position on any terrain, while the drivetrain delivers plenty of power to the wheels to ensure that the tyres can gain traction even when the truck is being driven on surfaces other than tarmac.

For lighter tipping duties, the Volvo FL range can suit second-hand buyers, since these models tend to embrace a dropside body at the rear and can also offer additions to the body such as higher mesh sides and even grabber mechanisms. Having a grabber can be advantageous if you want an all-in-one platform for loading and transport of loose materials, since it means you will not need to procure or rent a mini excavator as well as buying a tipper truck.
Even older models can offer Euro-compliant engines, although since Volvo tippers can last for years it is sensible to find out about the exact specifications of used models, covering everything from the type of body to the maximum load capacity and the service history of the unit so that you are up to speed with what is on offer and what you can achieve with a vehicle.
Buyers will usually provide information about the state of things such as the tyres and brakes, which should give you a rough idea of the time frame within which maintenance will be required. But it also pays to check the body for wear and tear and also look at how the hydraulics on the tipping ram and the grabber are operating, if applicable.
Repairs can be expensive, so having your wits about you when buying a used Volvo tipper will mean that you can avoid complications and get a great new vehicle for your business.
