The Volvo FL chassis is a dream for bodybuilding

Fast and flexible

The Volvo FL chassis can be ordered with a standard layout or specified for any requirements and superstructure. Robust and rigid, the flat, square design simplifies bodybuilding. The frame can be fitted with bodybuilder brackets. And Volvo Bodybuilder Instructions (VBI) speed up the process. So you’ll get a truck that’s perfectly tailored to your business, in the quickest, most cost-effective way possible.

Volvo Bodybuilder Instructions
A range of front axels, all maintenance-free

Maintenance-free front axles

A range of maintenance-free front axles is available depending on your load requirements. Load capacities range from 4.0 to 7.1 tonnes. The driven front axle for the Volvo FL with four-wheel drive has a load capacity of 5.6 tonnes.

High productivity - thanks to the Electronic Control System

Fast, easy loading

The Electronic Control System (ECS) can be used to control the air suspension levelling, via switches on the dashboard or a control box. This means quick, efficient loading at any height.  

Chose between air or leaf suspension

Choose your suspension

Depending on your axle load, opt for air suspension, leaf suspension or a combination of the two.

Wheels for every load

Select your wheels

Opt for a D5K engine and you’ll need 17.5 or 19.5” rims. For heavier trucks with 6-cylinder engines, go for 19.5 or 22.5.

Electronic Brake System (EBS)

The Volvo FL uses pneumatic brakes with ventilated discs front and rear. Its Electronically controlled Brake System (EBS) provides faster and safer braking response and helps reduce brake wear. The system includes ABS and a Brake Blending system that uses the truck’s various brakes to promote uniform braking and reduce tyre and brake wear. The extended EBS package also includes a Hill Hold feature.
