hello martyn.
Thankyou for uploading the photos,We have a few of these 40f s now and yesterday was the first time i had moved one as they are normally delivered straight to the sites,One thing that may turn out expensive is the cab door glass as you can see is full depth of the door,i also noticed that there is no planetary hub on the rear axles.Also there is no diff lock switches inside as i understand there is an intelligent drive that picks up wheel spin and directs grip where and when it is needed,Knowing Volvo they probably got it near perfect. :thumbup: :thumbup:
