Product: 1:14 RC Volvo FH16 Tow Truck 8x4
Our series of ultra-realistic 1/14 scale R/C trucks is a byword for fun, and offers a wide variety of different models and truck types. Now, it is to expand with another brand new type – the tow truck, which makes its living towing heavy duty vehicles such as tractor trucks. It promises a completely different element of enjoyment to predecessors in the series. The FH16 is marketed by Volvo, a renowned actor in the global commercial vehicle market. The FH Series includes a 750hp 16.1-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine FH16 Globetrotter 750 8x4 tow truck.
