Volvo Active Control

Precision grading, every time​

Volvo Active Control

Part of the suite of Dig Assist tools, Volvo Active Control brings out the best in every operator: “I can complete the job with more speed and precision, time and again. I’m less tired and able to focus on completing the task at hand correctly and safely.” It does that using automated boom and bucket movements as well as the 10” Volvo Co-Pilot tablet.

Consistent results

Complete the same task day after day and achieve the same uniform results.

Double your productivity

Up to 45% faster than traditional grading.

Semi-autonomous grading

With single-lever grading, the arm speed is manually adjusted by the operator while the machine automatically adjusts boom and bucket movements to maintain an even grade and create the desired shape.
NEW! Works with 3D - Topcon

Precision digging, every time

Swing control
Automatically stops the swing motion at a set angle to assist in digging and truck loading. Can be overridden with the joystick.


Bucket angle control with return to dig
Automated bucket adjustments maintain a constant cutting angle.
Return to set angle with the press of a button.


Tilt bucket control
Digging a V-shaped ditch is made easy with automated tilt bucket control.

Boundary limits

Depth limit
Prevents the bucket tip going beneath a pre-set depth, to avoid contact with underground hazards, such as pipes and cables.


Height limit
Prevents the boom and bucket from going above a pre-set elevation, to avoid overhead obstacles such as power lines.


Swing fence
Prevents the swing exceeding pre-set limits, to avoid contact with side obstacles.
