Tipper or tanker? Crane or car transporter? Perhaps a box van or fire truck? No matter what application you need, the Volvo FM is ready for it. The flexible chassis and long list of specification options makes it easy to tailor the truck to your exact requirements.
When you order your Volvo FM, we give the bodybuilder instant access to the Volvo Bodybuilder Instructions (VBI) online portal. Precise 3D drawings allow them to start work while we build the truck, which arrives from the factory perfectly prepped, saving unnecessary reconstruction work. This means your truck is delivered faster, more cost-effectively and ready to work.
Accessible 24/7 and available in 12 languages, the VBI is an essential resource for bodybuilders and workshops. Superstructure instructions include chassis drawings, wiring diagrams, data sheets and accessories.
There are a wide range of clutch-independent and clutch-dependent power take-offs available, to drive all sorts of body equipment.
Our Volvo frame is completely straight and parallel behind the cab, making the bodybuilder’s job a whole lot easier.
Our engineers never place anything above the top of the frame. This area belongs entirely to the bodybuilder, adding a lot of flexibility.
The frame comes with an upper row of holes designated for the superstructure. Since we don’t use any rivets, the bodybuilder can easily attach equipment.
The rear frame can now be factory cut exactly as you need it – in 50mm increments – to perfectly match your superstructure.
Lots of possible combinations make a truck easier to tailor. That’s why, when it comes to axle configurations, chassis heights and wheelbases, the new Volvo FM has more options than ever before.
Choose a 266mm or 300mm frame to match the demands of your superstructure.
This makes it easy for the bodybuilder to tap into the truck’s electrical system to tailor functions. The bodybuilder module is conveniently accessed through flexible dashboard switches and the Work Remote.
Some heavy applications put a lot of pressure on the frame. So the Volvo FM offers a wide choice of inner liners, providing all the reinforcement you need.
