Articulated Hauler

The new F-Series articulated haulers from Volvo ranges from the 26.5-ton A25F up to the 43-ton A40F, with each model maneuvering, traveling and dumping in an efficient and safe way. Heavy-duty front and rear frames were designed for severe off-road operation and long-service life. The load body is also heavy duty, made from HB400 steel, and promotes good material ejection through design, high dump clearance and tipping angle. A powerful, load sensing “closed center” hydraulic system allows for precise, controllable dumping – shortening cycle times and aiding safety. Furthermore, the new haulers meet the requirements of Tier 4i emissions legislation. Electronically controlled, six-cylinder turbo charged Volvo V-ACT diesel engines feature high torque at low engine speeds, resulting in good fuel efficiency, high performance, quicker engine response and less wear. The F-Series is fitted with four “dog clutch” differential locks – one longitudinal in the drop box and three transversal in the axles, which help maximize grip in difficult conditions.
