Volvo Trucks India Offers Off-Road Dump Truck & Construction Tipper

The Volvo FMX 500 8x4 is a completely new off-road dump truck solution, with improved load carrying capacities, which will further strengthen productivity in the mining sector. It comes with a body builder module ECU that prevents the truck from exceeding 5 kmph speed when the dump body is in raised position, thus preventing accidents at the dump yard.

The Volvo Dynamic Steering (VDS) ensures that the truck is stable even while carrying heavy payloads and elevates the driving experience to a completely new level. The new driver cabin gives the best working environment and enhances driver productivity. The latest engine management system, better gearshift programming and subtle design improvements in the engine will improve fuel-economy. This truck has been designed to run round the clock and the 405-litre fuel tank ensures that the trucks maximise their time in operation. With a 15% increase in payload capacity, this dump truck is designed to deliver superior productivity.

Volvo Trucks India Showcases Volvo FMX 500 Off-Road Dump Truck and Volvo FM 420 Construction Tipper

Volvo FM 420 8x4 23 Cu.M construction tipper will further redefine the transport solutions for road construction, irrigation, and quarry operations. It is powered by a 13-litre engine that generates 420 HP @ 1400-1800 rpm and peak torque of 2100 Nm @ 860-1400 rpm. The engine delivers maximum power over a wider rpm range and peak torque is available as low as 860 rpm, which leads to an improved average vehicle speed with lower fuel consumption. The engine management system has been upgraded from version 2.2 to 2.4 along with several design improvements that facilitate optimal fuel efficiency.

The new range of FMX and FM trucks are supported by Volvo Connect telematics solution that is a unified telematics portal giving comprehensive and digitalised service solutions like fleet management services like positioning and performance-boosting services like fuel and environment, to allow real-time tracking of trucks. The performance of 6000+ active trucks through 12 Uptime centres spread across India are continuously monitored. At Excon, Volvo Trucks India introduced three new service offerings as part of its Volvo Connect platform:
  • Fuel Efficiency Services: To facilitate and augment the driver’s skill enhancement process supported by advanced analytics.
  • Fleet Assist Services: To optimize vital parts of the mining operation, combining trip information with truck route prediction through constant learning algorithms thus reducing idling time and lowering operational expenses.
  • Uptime Care: Through this service, uptime of the fleet including vehicle wise repair status, fleet utilization and more importantly trip summary will be available in a combined view, in one place, real-time.
