Customised promotional model vehicle specialists, Search Impex, are pleased to announce the forthcoming release of a 1:50 scale Volvo FH Globetrotter (6x4) tractor unit with Fassi crane and load tray, customised in the livery of well-known Scottish operator Cadzow Heavy Haulage.
The model will be produced exclusively for Search Impex by WSI Collectibles as a certificated Limited Edition.
The Cadzow Heavy Haulage roots actually go back to 1957 when James Macauley (Snr) purchased a 2 tonne Morris truck and set out with a vision of building a family business in public works, including earthmoving, demolition and the supply of construction materials. Following the death of James in the early 1970s, his son (Jim Jnr) had the daunting task of taking over the reins. He opted to move away from the civil engineering and public works sector and made a decision to move purely into heavy haulage - so beginning, in 1973, what is now seen as today’s Cadzow Heavy Haulage. Under Jim Macauley’s guidance, the Company which, incidentally, takes its name from “Cadzow” – a region of South Lanarkshire in Scotland, has gone on to become one of the UK’s best known and most experienced operators in the transportation of heavy and abnormal loads. Sadly, in 2016, Jim Macauley passed away but, with the on-going involvement of his wife and daughters in the business, it still remains very much family owned and run.
Offering haulier services throughout the UK and Europe to a range of different industries, Cadzow Heavy Haulage can handle loads of up to 600 tonnes. Large items of machinery and plant for commercial businesses are moved using the haulier’s fleet of modern tractor units (predominantly Volvo, Mercedes & Scania) on a variety of modern trailers, including modular & low loaders. Reinvestment has always been a philosophy of the Macauley family, a policy resulting in a very modern, well maintained and well presented fleet of units and trailers. The Volvo FH, with 66 tonne crane, is a fairly recent and extremely versatile addition to the fleet. When complete with load tray mounted on its extra long chassis, the Volvo rig proves to be very useful for lifting and transporting to site ancillary and support kit - such as piling equipment, bulldozer blades, tyres and generators.
