Centrally mounted, semi-undermounted and undermounted towbars for centre-axle trailers. Towbars can be fitted at intervals of 25 mm.
Aluminium or steel tanks in volumes from 150 to 900 litres. Maximum fuel volume is 1,480 litres for a 4×2 tractor.
Plastic. Volumes from 32 to 90 litres. The AdBlue pump is integrated in the AdBlue tank module.
Certified installation permits up to 36 tonnes load. An ISO fifth wheel with L-shaped profiles at different heights is included in the range, offering considerable freedom of choice. The flange-mounted fifth wheel is a low-weight variant since it does not require any attachment plate. The fifth wheel’s height above the chassis is from about 140 mm. Integrated lubrication and trailer connection indicator is available as option for specific variants.
Volvo Dynamic Steering
Active steering system with torque overlay. Delivers more steering force at low speeds, reduces steering kicks and keeps the steering wheel straight forward when braking on split friction. The steering wheel returns automatically to neutral position both when driving forward and when reversing.
Volvo Dynamic Steering is now available for all axle configurations except those with a driven front axle (4×4, 6×6, 8×6 and 10×6).
Tandem Axle Lift
Allows the rearmost drive axle on the tandem bogie to be disengaged and raised, to reduce fuel consumption and turning radius. By pushing a button on the dashboard, the driver can raise the axle when the truck is unloaded. When the truck is loaded, the axle automatically lowers itself and engages.
Tandem Axle Lift is available for 6×4 and 8×4 configurations (with a tandem bogie) equipped with disc brakes.
Automatic Traction Control (ATC)
Automatically engages the driven front axle when it’s needed and disengages it when the terrain permits, saving fuel and improving manoeuvrability. ATC comes as standard on all Volvo FMX configurations with a driven front axle (4×4, 6×6, 8×6 and 10×6).
Available in several configurations – fixed with single or dual wheels, self steered or actively steered. Axle load: 7.5, 9.5 or 10 tonnes.
Available in fixed and actively steered variants for both tractors and rigids. Axle load: 7.5 or 9 tonnes.
