Safety features on Volvo machines

At Volvo Construction Equipment, safety of the machines we design and build is one of our core values. Here are some examples of safety features on Volvo machines:

  • ROPS (Roll Over Protection System) and FOPS (Falling Object Protection System) cab protection.
  • Comfortable seats, ideal for long operator working shifts.
  • Sturdy anti-slip steps and rails that guide operators into the cab.
  • Reduce vibration and noise levels inside and outside machines
  • Restricted machine speed if operator door is open.
