The right tool for the job

Volvo FM chassis

Regardless of your transport needs, you want a truck with a chassis that’s built to handle the kind of tasks you’re going to throw at it. Maybe you need a superstructure purpose-built for your operation? We tailor your chassis to support your success – using components and systems that are guaranteed to work reliably for many years to come. This is work gear you can count on.

Whether you drive at high speeds or need to manoeuvre into loading bays, the Volvo FM is a precision tool that helps you do the job right. You can get a fully air-suspended truck, both for interregional transport as well as construction work. And with Volvo Dynamic Steering, it’s hard to match the handling and feel.

You can get your Volvo FM in the form of lightweight tractor for on-road use or a rigid truck with up to five axles ready to take on an advanced superstructure. And they both start from the same chassis concept. This makes the Volvo FM a very versatile truck – build it according to your specifications.

10 tonne front axles

Heavily loaded? No problem. The Volvo FM is designed for high axle loads. Regardless if you choose leaf suspension or air suspension, the front axle can take up to 10 tonnes on a single axle. And 20 tonnes on dual front axles. It can help you get better margins – and makes it easier to handle heavy or unevenly distributed loads.

Tandem Axle Lift

Use the axle, but only when you need it. The Tandem Axle Lift allows the rearmost drive axle to be disengaged and raised when you unload. Just like a tag axle, this greatly improves the turning radius, reduces tyre wear and cuts down on fuel consumption.

Five axles straight from the factory

Transporting heavy loads? You can get a five-axle truck delivered direct from the factory. You’ll get your truck quicker and reduce customisation costs. And you’ll get a truck with a complete vehicle type approval. You’ll also benefit from a full Volvo warranty and our aftermarket support – which can lower your long-term operating costs.
