Volvo Trucks show­cases FM440

Auto components India - - SPECIAL REPORT -

Tak­ing forward Volvo group’s com­mit­ment to serve the con­struc­tion seg­ment in In­dia, Volvo Trucks show­cased its Volvo FM 440 with tip trailer body, FMX 10x4 dump truck along with FMX 8x4 fit­ted with tri­dem axle con­fig­u­ra­tion and hy­drauli­cally steered liftable tag axle. Hav­ing a sin­gle front axle, Volvo FMX 8x4 gets a tri­dem bo­gie rear sus­pen­sion. The op­ti­mised rear axle pres­sure on each axle al­lows im­proved trac­tion and with rear air sus­pen­sion, the axle load dis­tri­bu­tion is im­pro­vised. The liftable tag axle al­lows the FMX 8x4 to per­form like 6x4, thus reducing fuel con­sump­tion and lesser wear of tyres. This also re­duces turn­ing cir­cle di­am­e­ter by al­most five me­tres as against a reg­u­lar 8x4.

Lately in Oc­to­ber this year, Volvo trucks has in­creased its thrust es­pe­cially on the fast pick­ing up road con­struc­tion seg­ment in In­dia. With FMX 8x4 tri­dem, Volvo trucks also in­tro­duced U-body for con­struc­tion ap­pli­ca­tion that is claimed to of­fer in­creased pay­load, and ease of un­load­ing.
