In 2001 the new Volvo motor graders were launched, designed for maximum productivity, operability and operator comfort. Volvo manufactured machines from the 5 800 kg (12 800 lb) G60 to the 19 340 kg (42 740 lb) G780 and a full range of earth and snow attachments to provide a grading package for every public and private sector application.
Volvo introduced G700B series motor graders in 2002, which are powered exclusively with Volvo engines. Also introduced with the B series is machine monitoring contronics.
The compact motor grader business was sold in July 2004.
