With brakes powerful enough to stop a fully loaded Volvo hauler from 25 mph in one truck length, the Volvo F-series Articulated truck offers the ultimate in stopping precision under a range of conditions. Volvo's A35F & A40F articulated trucks feature all-wheel wet disc brakes, an industry-exclusive in the 35 ton platform, and the A25F & A30F offer all-wheel dry-disc brakes. Both systems allow the parking brake to hold a loaded truck on an 18 percent grade.
- Fully loaded stops from 25 mph in one truck length
- Decreased cycle times by 5%
- Increased productivity
- Maximum safety
- Unsurpassed traction for high speed hauling
- Long service life
- Independent system circuits
The Volvo articulated truck's sophisticated system is divided into circuits to ensure a long service life, and its unique "floating" design eliminates rear axle bounce when making a full stop.
Volvo's load and dump brake technology lowers cycle times by promoting fast dump cycles; press the button and the rear trailer brakes are activated and the transmission is shifted into neutral. Pull the lever and quickly dump the load in less than 12 seconds.
