Volvo FH16 – balancing power and comfort to perfection

When life on the road calls for nothing but the best. The Volvo FH16 offers power to work efficiently and a level of comfort that makes it all less of a strain. It’s the perfect match for the heaviest assignments. The exterior design hints that this truck is a notch above everything else in power and comfort. A powertrain that puts out up to 750 hp lets the Volvo FH16 pull combination weights up to 325 tonnes with ease. And the unique interior offers a comfortable working environment. This is an industry icon and a reliable tool.

Almost 50 years of collaboration with Volvo has helped us achieve success. I have an almost perfect timber truck. If God made a better one, he kept it for himself.
