Our engineers had a vision – a flexible chassis that could be adapted for almost any assignment. The result is light, yet strong enough for the heaviest loads. Incredibly durable. And infinitely customisable. So whatever your business, there’s a Volvo FE to match.
The Volvo FE chassis can be configured for almost any superstructure. Robust and rigid, the square, flat design makes for easy bodybuilding and a solution that satisfies even the most demanding of operations. Plus, improved chassis packaging for Euro 6 means the Volvo FE is unaffected by the stricter emission requirements.
Order your Volvo FE and the bodybuilder can log into Volvo Bodybuilder Instructions right away. Using the exact specifications and 3D drawings on the system, work can begin even before the truck has left the factory. So delivery is faster, and more cost-efficient, too.
The Volvo FE chassis can be ordered with a standard layout. But if you really want to make it easy for the bodybuilder you can order it with the preparation kit or even completely adapted to fit your specific needs.
The chassis can be specially adapted for specific applications such as refuse transporters, tankers and cranes. Components like fuel and AdBlue tanks are repositioned in order to optimise the chassis.
Four different rear axles are available in various combinations. The load capacity range stretches from 13 to 23 tonnes.
Choose between two types of trailing axles – a fixed tag axle with single or double wheels, or a hydraulically steered tag axle with single wheels. Both designs feature the option of a lift function when running unloaded.
There are two frame section heights of 266 mm and 300 mm with a frame thickness of 7 or 8 mm available depending on model.
On three-axle vehicles there is an inner liner to reinforce the area around the rear axles’ installation.
Depending on your truck specification and special requirements, you can choose steel or aluminium fuel tanks with capacities between 160 and 630 litres.
Fit your Volvo FE with two separate toolboxes to store load security straps and other equipment. The sizes are 55 litres and 125 litres respectively.
The reinforced, foldable Side Underrun Protection (SUP) comes as a factory fitted option. Designed by Volvo, it combines secure protection and easy serviceability.
Maintenance-free front axles with maximum load capacity of 7.1, 7.5, 8.0 or 9.0 tonnes are available.
