Volvo Trucks brings new Dump Truck for mining

Volvo Trucks launched the innovative, all new Volvo FM480 10x4 Dump Truck in India, built specifically for deep opencast mining.

Keeping pace with the dynamics of the industry for over a decade and a half, this truck is an innovation that will set new benchmarks in the mining industry.

Built on the powerful, reliable & proven Volvo FM13-litre platform, the FM480 10x4 Dump Truck is slated to be the next big ‘Game Changer’ in the mining application business.

 On the launch, Philippe Divry, Managing Director, Volvo India Private Limited and a VECV Board member said, “At a time where business is tough for everybody in the mining sector, Volvo, the market leader, once again innovates to create value for its customers.”

Volvo trucks operate only in select premium and niche segments in India and hold the Number 1 position in the premium European truck segment in India. Our direct service philosophy to provide premium care for premium trucks is very distinctive and a key differentiator.

With higher productivity at optimum cost being the need of the hour, we have designed the Volvo 10x4 in such a way that it’ll strike the perfect balance between productivity, performance and efficiency.

 Volvo FM 480 is an innovation that will redefine productivity. The sturdy 5-axle Dump Truck features the most technologically advanced powerful driveline, delivering 480HP, best-in-class 2400 Nm torque, power-to-weight ratio of 7.38 and a robust body with 24 M3 struck volume which brings along with it the unmatched Volvo quality and reliability.

The higher power-to-weight ratio provides superior average speeds thereby increased productivity, whereas the lower kerb weight gives superior fuel economy. The Volvo FM 480 10x4 Dump Truck comes with 24 M3 rock body  for rough and tough mining applications.
