Waste management company names new Volvo FM after champion arm wrestler

Manchester-based waste management company Fresh Start Waste Services has named its new Volvo FM-330 6×2 rear-steer Rear End Loader after World and Multiple British Arm-Wrestling Champion ‘Agy G’.

Fresh Start Waste Services has sponsored World Championship Gold medal winner Agy Gorzynska for three years and Chief Operating Officer Peter Cooke said that the company is delighted with the overwhelmingly positive media and social media coverage that the deal has generated.

The new 3.9m wheelbase FMs were supplied by Thomas Hardie Commercials at Trafford Park and are fitted with Volvo’s 11-litre diesel rated at 330hp and I-Shift automated gearboxes and the specification includes Volvo’s Load Indicator and medium height chassis for improved ground clearance.

The truck is equipped with Farid T23 (23 cubic metre capacity) rear-loading compactor bodywork and joins Fresh Start Waste’s 30-strong fleet of specialist waste collection vehicles used to collect trade and commercial waste from businesses across Northwest England.
