Construction & Mining

Performance in the gravel pit

In the open quarry, on dirt roads, or even off-road, Volvo FM and Volvo FH are steady workhorses. Construction and mining includes both local and regional, and sometimes even long haul transportation of rocks, excavation material, earth, sand and minerals. It's a business that put trucks to the test when it comes to durability, reliability and flexibility. The Volvo FM and Volvo FH are made to stand the test of the heaviest transports and they offer total performance in every aspect.

  • High ground clearance

  • Sturdiness
  • Wide range of chassis height, axle configurations and drive alternatives
  • Alternative T-ride or B-ride bogie
  • Efficient pulling power
  • Convenience and safety in hazardous environments
  • I-shift available
  • First-class ergonomics
  • Massive torque
  • Clear view
