Tailored for action

Volvo FMX chassis

Whether you’re driving on or off road, you’ll need a chassis that’s built to handle a lot of action on a daily basis. You probably have a superstructure purpose-built for your operations. We tailor your chassis to support your success – using components and systems that are guaranteed to work reliably for many years to come.

Regardless if you’re operating in a mine or service busy construction sites, the Volvo FMX is a precision tool you can count on. Get a versatile truck with a rear air suspension purpose-built for construction use or a leaf suspended truck that can carry massive loads on the axles. With Volvo Dynamic Steering, it’s hard to match the handling and feel.

The Volvo chassis offers the flexibility to build a truck for any kind of superstructure used in any kind of transport assignments. You’ll get your Volvo FMX just the way you want it. Your Volvo Trucks dealer will help you tailor your truck.

10/20 tonne front axles

Heavily loaded? No problem. The Volvo FMX 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. This directly translates to improved productivity.

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 fuel consumption.
