The Volvo A45G Full-Suspension Articulated Hauler

The Volvo A45G full-suspension articulated hauler is purpose-built to deliver reliability and performance that is second to none, according to the company. When working in tough terrain, the A45G FS delivers superior productivity, travel speed and cycle times when compared to other haulers for an improved Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Full suspension is a fully hydraulic system. It works by supplying hydraulic fluid to the suspension cylinders. Oil is free to flow to and from the tank as needed, unlike with gas hydraulic cylinders.

The front suspension consists of two hydraulic cylinders (1) and two accumulators. The bogie beam and rubber springs have been replaced with four hydraulic cylinders coupled with four accumulators (2) working in pairs – two high-pressure pairs for loaded operations and two low-pressure pairs for unloaded operations.

Six level sensors (3) monitor the frame movement in relation to the axles and signal the hydraulic system to adjust the suspension dynamically.

Whether you work in mining, quarrying or heavy infrastructure projects, the A45G FS will get the job done efficiently, comfortably and productively in extreme off-road conditions.

A45G FS AT A GLANCE:

  • 41,000 kg (45.2 ton) load capacity.
  • 25.1 m3 (32.85 yd3) body volume, SAE 2:1 heap.
  • 30,500 kg (67,241 lb) net weight, 71 500 kg (157,631 lb.) gross weight.
  • 350 kW (469 hp) Volvo D16 diesel engine.
  • Full hydraulic suspension.
  • Automatic leveling and stabilizer.
  • On Board Weighing system.
