The Volvo articulated haulers get the job done quickly, safely, and effectively even in adverse climate or ground conditions.
The unique manoeuvrability of these haulers is due to the rotating hitch and their frame steering, making it possible for the tractor and trailer to move independently of each other. This reduces stresses on the frame in off-road operations and makes the machine easy to operate – even with a full load – since all the wheels have good ground contact.
Throughout the years, Volvo hauler have proven to be perfect for different types of earth-moving at major construction projects, such as road and dam construction. But the articulated haulers are also the optimal solution in many other applications, such as operations in sand and gravel pits, quarries, mines, tunnel construction, and on landfill sites, just to mention a few examples. The common feature of all these worksites is that they often have demanding loading and dumping sites, large volumes have to be hauled, and often the work area has no roads – but still the vehicles must have the ability to maintain high speeds where there are roads.
