1:50 scale Volvo A60H articulated dumper truck, customised in the livery of Midlands based operator Collins Earthworks Ltd.
The models have been produced exclusively for Search Impex by WSI Models as a certificated Limited Edition (215 pieces).
Based near the Derbyshire market town of Ripley, the business was established many years ago by David Collins, firstly as a sole trader and later registering as Collins Contractors Plant Hire Ltd in 2000. In 2006, the trading name was changed to Collins Earthworks Ltd., and continued successful growth has seen the Company undertake work throughout the UK. In addition to earthworks, the business has established a number of affiliated companies, including its sister company, EnviroTrac Ltd, (set up in 2008, specialising in soil stabilisation), Collins Training (formed in 2013 to provide operator training both internally as well as for external clients) and most recently Collins Demolition Ltd. Each enterprise operates out of two sites in Ripley and Kirkby In Ashfield in Nottinghamshire.
Collins Earthworks Ltd has been managing earthmoving projects for over 15 years. It provides a fast, flexible, reliable and professional service nationwide and has achieved long running success meeting the demands of its customers from consultation through to construction. With a constant programme of investment in its staff and fleet, the business has its own workshops and mobile service units with fully qualified mechanical technicians to help keep machine down time to a minimum.
With an extensive fleet of over 1100 pieces of plant, equipment and hgv’s, Collins operates the country’s biggest private fleet of Volvo A60H articulated dumpers. Capable of carrying an impressive 55 metric ton payload and with a cubic capacity body just shy of 34cu m, these dumpers are regularly teamed up with Collins fleet of excavators (including the mighty Volvo EC950F - the largest excavator in the Volvo range). As true industry workhorses, the Volvo A60H dumpers (on which the models have been based) are also presently the largest articulated dump trucks on the market.
