Avon Material Supplies (AMS) have recently added a brand new 8 wheel grab lorry to their substantial fleet of modern vehicles. The multi-purpose 8 wheel DAF CF400FAD has been carefully customised by leading local suppliers to ensure it can efficiently complete the vigorous tasks it is expected to perform on a daily basis.

The body was constructed by PJB Engineering in Fareham and the unusually long 10 metre HIAB grab arm has been installed and configured by Ferndown Commercials.

In addition to being a highly effective vehicle, the truck also meets all EU emission standards and benefits from on-board telematics that monitor its performance and efficiency.

This investment of almost £150,000 is seen as a vital part in the programme of activities that AMS are currently undertaking in order to effectively serve their growing customer base in Dorset and Hampshire.

Now the truck has been formally handed over by local DAF agency, Adams Morey, it will be placed straight into service to help the existing AMS Grab fleet truck perform tasks such as site clearances, the collection of bagged waste and the delivery of recycled aggregates in bulk bags and loose loads.
