Volvo introduces

hauler chassis range

Already well established with it range of artculated dump trucks and equipment for forestry applicatons, the company understand the problems of working in and hauling loads over rough and difcult 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 artculated hauler, supplied without load body or hoist cylinders. These base machines then provide the platorm for the customer, Volvo dealer or third party body builder to modify in order to suit the specifc transport soluton required. The range of possibilites is endless, but popular superstructure optons include tmber hauler, water tank, hook lif, ejector body or ffh 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 fexibility. Ofered in two lengths, 1.2 and 1.7 m, the extension means longer or larger volumes can be supported.

When mountng superstructures, Volvo also makes available all technical support, as well as Body Builder Instructons (BBI), which have been developed by Volvo engineers. The BBI is a web-based tool that provides drawings, specifcatons and other technical informaton to help integrate the new superstructure and ensure that the fnished machine performs safely, effectively and fuel efficiently. The system also describes the installation process in detail, highlights various superstructure possibilites and emphasizes the simplicity with which Volvo haulers can be adapted. Additonally, BBI clarifes each party’s responsibilites and legal aspects, warranty & afersales conditons.

Endless opportunities of the F-Series

With their heavy duty frames and immense of road performance, Volvo’s new F-Series artculated haulers are the ideal platorm for a host of applicatons. Under the Hauler Chassis program, a selecton of optonal equipment is available, as are hydraulic interfaces to suit a range of superstructures, thereby reducing build tme. As well as the standard machine hydraulics an auxiliary open or closed center system is fted that allows for superstructures connecton without further modifcatons.

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 artculated steering system, which afords exceptonally short turning circles – useful in confned loading areas and on tghtly turning haul roads. The self-compensatng hydro-mechanical system also gives operators outstanding control of the machine through both its high steering force in tough of road conditons (e.g. deep mud) and also its accurate, safe operaton at high speeds.
