Stay safe in the FOPS-certified Volvo cab, fitted with the ROPS body canopy. But safety doesn’t stop there. Inside the cab, benefit from a host of visibility-enhancing details, including the operator seat – located on the left of the two-person cab – and Volvo Smart View. The standard feature combines three exterior-mounted camera views to create a bird’s eye view of the machine, displayed via the on-board monitor.
Even though they’re built to work hard, all Volvo machines are packed full of features designed to make the job safer and easier – and the D-Series rigid dumpers are no exception. Safe from the inside out, the rigid dumpers come factory-fit with a ROPS-certified body canopy, superb visibility and unrestricted access to all essential service points. With safety built into every design aspect of the all-new rigid dumpers, you can rest assured we’ve got you – and your crew – covered.
Protect you and your crew thanks to a full spectrum of safety systems. Body hoist inhibitor, for example, ensures the transmission prevents upshifts, while engine overspeed protection automatically slows the machine down to within safe operating limits. Other features include the optional neutral coast inhibitor, which protects the dumper in downhill operations, as well as fail-safe braking and secondary steering systems.
Experience fast and safe hauling with the transmission or brake retarder. The standard feature gives you more control of your rigid dumper when traveling up or down steep gradients. When operating downhill or slowing down before crossroads, the system can be activated instantly, for excellent productivity and high levels of safety. Rain or shine, know no limits with the D-Series rigid dumpers.
Whether operating or servicing your rigid dumper, gain safe, simple and straightforward entry to the machine using anti-slip steps and secure walkways. From the wide platform or ground level, safely complete essential planned maintenance. For added protection and peace of mind – particularly during servicing – use integral safety locks to isolate the machine system.
Stay informed of job site activity at all times thanks to a variety of visible and audible safety warnings, communicated via the operator dashboard. Essential machine warning alerts include engine faults, low pressure, temperature, and working outside of safe parameters.
