Frames & Structures

You demand a durable machine to withstand extreme worksite conditions. Volvo assures it.

Volvo Construction Equipment is designed and built on a foundation of exacting quality requirements. These tough standards are derived from decades of experience, both in the field and in the lab, delivering unsurpassed frame and structure longevity and durability. 

Quality is synonymous with the Volvo brand, and has been central to the products we engineer and produce for more than 175 years. We believe in the quality of our products and are passing that on to you through the Lifetime Frame and Structure Warranty.

The integrity of our frame and structures results from:

• Bench durability testing

• Frames with high tensile steel for long
  service life and low risk of fatigue

• Strength and weight optimized frames

• Volvo welding standard for high
  quality robotic/conventional welds

• High quality bearings, sealed
   to prevent contamination and early   
   bearing failure

• Booms with large cross sections

• Ultrasonic testing

• Heavy duty X Frame undercarriage     
   that distributes forces for longer life
   of the undercarriage

• All mating surfaces machined to
  ensure exact component location and
  strong joints

The warranty applies to the initial machine owner and is non-transferrable.
