The drivetrain and inline dropbox are designed for high ground clearance, while the drivetrain delivers high rimpull, lowers fuel consumption, and provides reliability in heavy-duty applications.

Oil-cooled wet multiple disc brakes are said to reduce maintenance costs and increase uptime, even on muddy or dusty sites.

A retardation system controls downhill haul speeds using wheel brakes and the engine brake.

Automatic traction control and differential locks are standard, while an onboard weighing system allows the equipment operator to optimize payload.

The machines are also fitted with CareTrack, Volvo’s telematics system.
