Whatever you need space for, the Volvo FM has room for it. Its clever chassis design and increased specification options let you tailor the layout to your exact needs. The chassis also features Volvo-patented technologies that ensure superior handling – on the motorway and round the tightest bends.
Bodybuilder brackets, different rear end cuts and Volvo Bodybuilder Instructions save the bodybuilder unnecessary work – and save you time.
The Volvo FM is based on the same chassis platform as the Volvo FH and the Volvo FH16. Its improved suspension systems and stabilisers provide car-like handling. And the option of Volvo Dynamic Steering gives you precise and effortless control at all speeds.
Your Volvo FM is now available with the all-new Tandem Axle Lift, a revolutionary feature that allows the rearmost drive axle to be disengaged and raised when you unload. Just like a tag axle, this greatly improves the turning radius and reduces fuel consumption.
By optimising standard specifications, such as the 4×2 tractor, we’ve made the truck a whole lot lighter – 75 kilograms lighter than its predecessor. This gives you a greater payload and better fuel consumption
Heavy load? No problem. The Volvo FM is designed for higher axle loads. The front leaf suspension can now handle up to 10 tonnes on a single axle. And 20 tonnes on dual front axles. This increases your margins – and makes it easier to handle heavy or unevenly distributed cargo.
Transporting heavy loads? You can opt for a 5-axle truck delivered direct from the factory. You’ll get your truck quicker. There are no reconstruction 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.
