Top operators turn on the style at Volvo European final

The final this year featured 22 qualifiers from 11 countries all across Europe and pitted them against the clock and each other in an intense competition featuring a warm-up round (to determine the starting order) and three testing challenges using a range of Volvo CE machines, including wheeled loaders, tracked compact radius excavators, and compaction machinery.
