Linfox adds 700hp to WA fleet

Linfox recently added four new Volvo FH16 700hp trucks to its fleet in Western Australia. The new vehicles will be used to help the company service remote and distant resources customers across the state.

These trucks are among the first 700 horsepower trucks in Australia and will use their power to haul triple road trains supplying some of Western Australia’s key resources sites.

Linfox supplies major WA mining and gas developments with a wide range of products and equipment in locations that include the Pilbara, Dampier, Port Hedland and the Kalgoorlie region. The journeys to these sites are over 1600 kilometres each way.

The new Volvo FH16s are rated for up to 140,000 kilograms and dangerous goods haulage. They feature full airbag suspension, disc brakes and 1380 litre fuel capacity to provide a range of more than 1800 kilometres.

They have also been fitted with full electronics, emission monitoring diagnostics and Selective Catalytic Reduction to meet Euro 5 emission standards, as well as GPS monitoring devices and satellite and mobile phones.
