Driving Progress

It complements
your skills perfectly.

Driving in construction operations requires skill. Great skill when it comes to efficient and fast transporting
of large loads without getting bogged down, and without compromising the truck.
But does it require muscles, too? No, not really. Even if the Volvo FMX is robust, it is developed to make
driving construction applications easier and safer from the sturdy bumper and advanced steering to the new
comfortable rear suspension. Let us show you what a modern construction truck, packed with innovative
solutions and groundbreaking features, looks like.

The new steering is especially

suitable for trucks with multiple
rear axles.

This is how we improved handling and driving comfort.

Weve taken many steps to increase handling characteristics and
driving comfort. The results are very positive, we must admit.

How it works.

We have fitted an electrical motor on the steering gear.

The motor is controlled 2,000 times per second via
the trucks electronic control units and produces torque
overlay. The torque is progressive and gives more power
to the steering when needed, obtaining a predetermined
steering feel, independent of load and tyres. This results
in a totally different driving experience reassuringly Its comfortable. Its smooth. It follows you like a faithful dog.

How can a
bumper affect
your uptime?

It doesnt matter how skilled you are. On the narrow, dark stretches in the mine or in the gravel pit its easy to bump
into something and damage the truck. Thus, the headlights must be protected and well anchored. Rough surfaces
and rocks must not damage the oil pan. The bumpers must withstand rough treatment. And if something does
happen, you shouldnt need to bring the truck to the workshop. Just keep on running as if nothing happened.
Because uptime is essential.

Take the curves

in your stride.
Whatever your load.
Need to distribute your load on many axles? But only need traction on a few? Then we have two proposals,
one which gives you unparalleled flexibility when it comes to manoeuvring on narrow roads and one that is very
suitable when you have high front-axle load.


They are not only useful in tight
spaces. This quality also saves time
and increases productivity.

The software makes it possible to tailor I-Shift to your

How it works.

It may seem strange. Beneath the surface of I-Shift, the archetype of modern transmissions
hides an old-school unsynchronised manual gearbox. (Hence the compact design and
low internal losses.) But of course theres more to I-Shift than that. The secret lies in the
intelligent electronic control unit. Its responsible for controlling the pneumatic system that
handles the clutch and shifts. By constantly receiving information about vehicle speed,
acceleration, weight, road grade, torque demand and more, it can carry out every shift with FIND ALL GEAR-
