|When adapting the chassis of the Volvo FE, our engineers set their imaginations to work. A flexible model was the collective vision, one that could be fitted to almost any assignment a truck could undertake.
They then developed a sturdy, durable chassis which, although light, could bear heavy loads and could be easily customised.
Now you can put the results of their endeavour to the test.
Easy, fast loading.
The Electronic Control System (ECS) can be used to control the air suspension levelling, via switches on the dashboard or a control box. This results in easy, fast loading, regardless of the height of the loading ramp.
Whatever you need it to be.
For specific applications like refuse transporters, tankers
and cranes, the chassis can be specially adapted. Fuel tanks are repositioned in order to accommodate the application in question.

A smooth drive is guaranteed by state-of-the-art cab suspension. There is a choice of suspension on the Volvo FE for both front and rear axles. These are dependent on the axle load. Air and leaf suspension are available in a variety of combinations.

Fast and safe braking response.
The Volvo FE has pneumatic brakes with discs at both front and rear. The Electronically controlled Brake System (EBS) anti-locking disc-brake system provides both faster and safer braking response and promotes less brake wear. The system includes features such as ABS, a differential lock and Brake Blending.
The extended EBS package features a function that facilitates starting on slopes. Brake discs are available in different sizes depending on the application.
