Customised for your productivity

Volvo FH16 Chassis

You want a truck with a chassis that’s built to handle the kinds of tasks you’re going to throw at it. We tailor your chassis to support the success of your operations – using components and systems that are guaranteed to work reliably for many years to come. This is work gear you can trust.

Your Volvo FH16 is a precision tool on the road. You can get a fully air-suspended truck, both for demanding long haul transport as well as construction work. And with Volvo Dynamic Steering, it’s hard to match the handling and feel.

We can build you a Volvo FH16 ready to pull extreme loads in tough conditions or to cover long highway routes at a demanding pace. And they both start from the same chassis concept. The Volvo FH16 can be tailored for just about anything that calls for plenty of power and driveability.

Tandem Axle Lift

Use the axle lift, but only when you need it. The Tandem Axle Lift allows the rearmost drive axle to be disengaged and raised when you unload. Just like a tag axle, this greatly improves the turning radius, reduces tyre wear and brings down fuel consumption.
