With heavy loads and demanding terrain, mining & 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
Volvo FMX440 tipper is fitted with heavy duty hub reduction tandem drive axles where the main reduction takes place in the hub and hence reduces the forces and stresses on drive shafts and crown wheel pinion. The rear axle is matched to tyre size & economic engine speed.
