Volvo introduces hauler chassis range

Already well established with it range of articulated dump trucks and equipment for forestry applications, the company understand the problems of working in and hauling loads over rough and difficult terrain.

The launch of the company’s Hauler Chassis, now makes it easier for customers and expert body builders to adapt standard haulers into special purpose vehicles.

Hauler Chassis is a modular concept whereby customers can order a standard articulated hauler, supplied without load body or hoist cylinders. These base machines then provide the platform for the customer, Volvo dealer or third party body builder to modify in order to suit the specific transport solution required. The range of possibilities is endless, but popular superstructure options include timber hauler, water tank, hook lift, ejector body or fifth wheel for pulling a wide range of trailers. A bolt-on frame extension is also available for the A25F and A30F-based machines, for added flexibility. Offered in two lengths, 1.2 and 1.7 m, the extension means longer or larger volumes can be supported.

When mounting superstructures, Volvo also makes available all technical support, as well as Body Builder Instructions (BBI), which have been developed by Volvo engineers. The BBI is a web-based tool that provides drawings, specifications and other technical information to help integrate the new superstructure and ensure that the finished machine performs safely, effectively and fuel efficiently. The system also describes the installation process in detail, highlights various superstructure possibilities and emphasizes the simplicity with which Volvo haulers can be adapted. Additionally, BBI clarifies each party’s responsibilities and legal aspects, warranty & aftersales conditions.

Endless opportunities of the F-Series

With their heavy duty frames and immense off road performance, Volvo’s new F-Series articulated haulers are the ideal platform for a host of applications. Under the Hauler Chassis program, a selection of optional equipment is available, as are hydraulic interfaces to suit a range of superstructures, thereby reducing build time. As well as the standard machine hydraulics an auxiliary open or closed center system is fitted that allows for superstructures connection without further modifications.

The range load capacity is from the 28 tonne A25F up to the 44.6 tonne A40F. Central to the articulated hauler concept is the articulated steering system, which affords exceptionally short turning circles – useful in confined loading areas and on tightly turning haul roads. The self-compensating hydro-mechanical system also gives operators outstanding control of the machine through both its high steering force in tough off road conditions (e.g. deep mud) and also its accurate, safe operation at high speeds.
