Chassis packaging

The Volvo FH can be made to suit the most varying transport tasks with chassis available in different heights, types of suspension system, braking system and peripheral equipment.

There are three different chassis heights for tractors:

  • Low
  • Medium
  • High

And three heights for rigids:

  • Low
  • Medium
  • High

The low chassis is intended for bulk transport on good roads with all-round air suspension.  Medium suits trucks with low front axles in combination with either front leaf or front air suspension.  High is intended for trucks used on construction sites or transports on bad roads and for trucks with leaf suspension.
