Volvo Trucks has launched three new models in the country – the Volvo FH, Volvo FM and the Volvo FMX. All of them feature improvements in critical areas such as productivity, fuel efficiency, safety and maximizing uptime. Other unique features include the intelligent I-Shift automated gearbox technology optimized for tough and rugged mining operating conditions and Volvo’s Dynafleet telematics system. Dynafleet enables users to see in real-time the location of their vehicles and vehicles’ performance data that are critical to have control on their fleet. It also allows users to follow up on fuel consumption over time, and – together with Volvo Trucks Driver Training services – trains drivers into further improving their fuel saving skills.
The Volvo FH makes operations with over-dimensional cargo more comfortable while the new Volvo FH 520, built grounds up, is more robust, leading to increased technical load carrying capacity by 33% to 200 tonnes. The new FMX 440 8X4 is especially built for the mining and construction industries and is equipped with an increased body capacity of 19.5m3 which allows to carry an additional bucket of payload. Also, it will offer the I-Shift gearbox for mining as an option, which makes it easier to drive the vehicles under the toughest conditions, thereby increasing productivity.
