SWEDEN: Volvo Trucks launches heavy FH16

Volvo Trucks has launched a version of its FH16 for heavy haulage involving gross combination weights of up to 295 tonnes.

Volvo Trucks has launched a version of its FH16 for heavy haulage involving gross combination weights of up to 295 tonnes.

“This is for the very heaviest and most demanding transport assignments, one of the few on the market capable of handling such high gross combination weights,” said spokesman Hayder Wokil.

The new 16-litre engine produces 600 horsepower and 2800 Nm of torque and is coupled to a seven-speed automatic transmission with a torque converter, a combination that allows the truck to start off smoothly and improves its manoeuvrability at low speeds.

This heavy haulage model is offered as a tractor with leaf springs or air suspension, and comes in a wide range of wheel and axle combinations.
