Default Volvo launches two new large capacity 5-axle dump trucks

At EXCON 2015, Volvo Trucks has launched two new large capacity FMX platform based 5-axle dump trucks for mining applications i.e. the FMX 520 10x4 dump truck with a 26.1 Cu.m body and FMX 480 10x4 dump truck with a 24 Cu.m body.

The FMX 520 10x4 dump truck offers a 33% higher capacity and the FMX 480 10X4 offers a 28% higher capacity, when compared to the current 8X4 options available in the market. The trucks have been launched to take advantage of the growing demand for coal production and the governmentís plans to double the coal production to 1 billion tonnes by 2020.

Volvo Trucks also showcased a highly customized coal haulage solution with 33 Cu.m bodies which is the largest coal haulage truck in the Indian market along with their flagship model the FMX 440 8x4I shift.
