Extra heavy equipment that’s essential to your forward-deployed ground personnel needs to get there fast. Transportation of this heavy equipment and vehicles is normally a mission-critical task. The Volvo FMX comes in a multitude of configurations that make it ready for a multitude of requirements. Here are some of the key features that turn heavy transportation into light work.
The I-Shift with crawler gears makes it possible to transport really heavy loads and get moving on the steepest of inclines. And the Volvo FMX equipped with the I-Shift with crawler gears provides extremely high starting torque and rimpull, taking off from standstill while pulling a gross combination weight (GCW) of 325 tonnes.
This patented feature allows for downhill descent without wearing the brakes. It won’t heat the transmission, and it provides excellent control. These features are all extremely important when transporting extra-heavy loads.
Automatic Traction Control (ATC) improves maneuverability of the truck. The fully automatic front axle drive engages instantly, eliminating operator error and loss of traction while saving fuel and reducing unnecessary wear and tear.
