With heavy loads and demanding terrain, construction duties impose tough demands on axles and bogies. Volvo’s axles are sturdily built so you can always rely on them – both as regards load-carrying capacity and sheer durability. All so you don’t have to risk getting stuck in the mud with an underdimensioned truck.
For the heaviest of jobs
The Volvo FMX comes with a comprehensive range of axle configurations that make it easy to tailor the truck to even the heaviest of haulage jobs. Volvo’s tridem bogie offers enormous stability and a short rear overhang. A driven front axle permits all-wheel drive, in either 4x4 or 6x6 configuration. And for those truly heavy transports, the Volvo FMX can be specified with dual front axles, in which configuration the truck can handle gross vehicle weights of up to 48 tonnes.
