With payloads ranging from 25 to 45 tonnes, the new G-Series articulated haulers from Volvo Construction Equipment are always ready to work. The range – A25G, A30G, A35G, A40G, A45G FS and the new 45 tonne class A45G are designed for heavy hauling in severe off-road operations, including quarries, open cast mines and large earth-moving operations. The G-Series matches long service life with quality, reliability and durability, and is everything you expect from Volvo, making hauling easier and more efficient.

Strength and durability are the hallmarks of the G-Series articulated haulers. Engineered to increase uptime, thanks to their heavy-duty front and rear frames, hitch and wet disc brakes the G-Series benefits from Volvo’s proven durability and the support of an extensive array of maintenance options, meaning never needing to worry about getting the job done.

Volvo Construction Equipment has come a long way since its original 10 tonne articulated hauler was launched in 1966 – its latest G-Series is the culmination of 50 years of trusted Volvo engineering and innovation. Volvo remains the world’s leading manufacturer of articulated haulers, it commercialized the concept and has been developing and building these machines ever since.

Moving more for less
The G-Series is engineered to help improve efficiency and move more for less. Excellent fuel efficiency, innovative technology and useful operational data tools help to control your maintenance costs and maximize your investment.

Powered by the renowned Volvo Tier 4 Final / Stage IV engines, which range from 234 kW (318 hp) on the A25G to 347 kW (445 hp) on the A45G, the G-Series delivers excellent fuel efficiency without compromising on power or performance, providing up significant improvements in fuel economy, compared to the models they replace. The Volvo engine’s lower idle speed delivers an additional fuel saving for the most efficient machine. Each machine is optimized for fuel efficiency relative to their individual payload capabilities, so more can be moved for less. Dynamic and predictive gear selection adjusts to operating conditions, for improved comfort and fuel efficiency.

During operation, valuable data is available to improve onsite efficiency and reduce costs. With intelligent systems from Volvo such as MATRIS™, CareTrack™ and the On Board Weighing system, production can be optimized and operational costs reduced. The On Board Weighing System guarantees the optimal load every cycle. Added to that, a array of Customer Support Agreements offers preventive maintenance, total repairs and a number of uptime services, allowing complete control of maintenance costs.

Go anywhere ability
The Volvo articulated hauler concept provides total versatility so the entire jobsite can be accessed and steeper gradients climbed. Able to work in all seasons, terrains and applications, several body building and chassis options are available. The G-Series unbeatable off-road performance is thanks to matched Volvo drivetrain, Automatic Traction Control, including 100% differential locks, all terrain bogie and hydro mechanical steering.

The haulers are just as surefooted going downhill, with retarders and Dynamic Volvo Engine Brake ensuring safety and productivity are maintained. The G-Series’ dump support system and load and dump brake also help operators stay in control at all times for extra productivity and safety.

Operator’s choice
Volvo haulers are the number one operator’s choice because of their industry leading cab, which provides a spacious and comfortable work environment.

Superior levels of comfort, control, ease of operation and safety appeal to operators, maintaining productivity all day, every day. The centrally positioned operator, superior steering, excellent suspension, low noise levels, climate control, space and visibility, reduce operator fatigue for more effective operations. The ergonomic, comfortable controls are also easy to understand, combined with automatic functions for increased ease of operation.

Simple serviceability and support
Thanks to its industry leading access, servicing the G-Series is quick and easy. The front grill swings down, becoming a service platform with anti-slip steps. The electric hood opens to 90 degrees, allowing full and safe access to the engine compartment.

For peace of mind, Volvo’s exclusive dealer network is always there to provide support, whenever needed. Volvo offers a number of services, local knowledge and global experience, including telematics machine monitoring – CareTrack™ and MATRIS™ – as well as superb parts availability. All of which optimizes production, while minimizing operational costs.
