Volvo FMX

Volvo FMX, the modern construction truck, packed with innovative solutions and groundbreaking features.

4×2, 4×4, 6×2, 6×4, 6×6, 8×2, 8×4 or 8×6

D11 or D13 (330 to 480 hp)

A streamlined belly-line. At least the truck has one.

One of the most essential qualifications for a construction truck is high ground clearance. That’s why we created the air suspension GRAS-G2 for one up to three rear axles. At the same time we created outstanding stability and driving comfort, whether the truck is laden or unladen. This is a rear suspension that is specifically developed for the gravel pit.

Air suspension GRAS-G2 with high ground clearance

Optimised rear axle pressure

Better traction and higher average speed

Optimized rear axle pressure on every axle means better traction, thanks to the air suspension. The driver can adjust axle load distribution for better traction if needed. Air suspension gives less vibration into the truck and you will get a better driving comfort, especially when unloaded. This will also contribute to a higher average speed.

Stabilisers in bogie centre

The position of the stabiliser bar results in less torsion forces on the chassis and better roll and tipping stability. It also contributes to the high ground clearance.

Air bellows above the axle

The air bellows are more protected and their new positions contribute to the high ground clearance. As do all other components.

Air suspension inside the rear tire envelope

Air suspension

Air suspension provides outstanding driving comfort and makes it possible to vary the ground clearance. No parts of the suspension lay outside the rear tyre envelope (with 315/80R22.5 tyres). This makes it easier to adapt the chassis for applications such as asphalt layers or tippers.

Protected brakes

Protected brakes

Don’t worry. No parts of the braking system stand beneath the rear axle.

That’s why you can be sure that the truck can handle all obstacles.
