Volvo FL6 4x4 Highlander

Volvo FL6 4x4 Highlander

Special purpose 4x4 built at Volvo's small factory in Irvine Scotland as an aircraft tug for the Swedish (or possibly Norwegian) Air Force. (Bill Reid)

Colin Nicholson writes ... These 4x4 FL6 conversions were called Highlanders, and were used in Scotland (possibly elsewhere too) by the various electricity service providers. These were generally fitted with a crane and used for overhead line maintenance, including pole and transformer installation.
