The New Volvo FMX 440
The best in its class just got better
Driving in mining operations requires skill. Great skill when it comes to efficient and fast transportation of
large loads without getting bogged down and without compromising the truck.
But does it require muscles, too? No, not really. The new Volvo FMX 440 19.5 Cu.m Tipper takes care of
it. The new Volvo FMX 440 is robust, it is developed to make driving in tough mining applications easier and
safer – from the sturdy bumper, high ground clearance, comfortable cabin, choice of manual and I-Shift gear
and a powerful engine. Let us show you what a modern mining & construction truck, packed with innovative
solutions and groundbreaking features, looks like.
built for robustness
Designed for rough roads
The new Volvo FMX 440 looks a lot tougher because the truck itself has become a lot tougher. You could say the
design is very honest – it lets you see the truck for what it is: a highly robust and durable piece of equipment.
All the familiar FMX elements are there; and they have been further enhanced and improved. The front towing
member, for instance, is one piece of cast iron and is now strong enough to hold up to 32 tonnes with its tow
hook. The bull bar is tougher and larger, as are the corner bumpers, which are made out of three millimetre thick
high grade steel. With its new box-like construction, the front becomes incredibly sturdy. So it absorbs the energy
of a low speed impact like a giant spring.
There is nothing hanging down underneath the truck except wheels. The new headlights are positioned higher
up where they are less likely to get damaged and best kept. Body panels are split rather than overlapping so that
any cosmetic damage is isolated.
And if you do manage to do any serious damage to the front, you’ll probably be able to replace the part yourself
as the screws are all visible and easily accessible. We’re pretty sure this is going to be popular with customers as
it offers savings and increases uptime.
The sturdy bumper.
Push and pull 32 tonnes.
It’s made of 3 mm thick high grade steel, it’s
in three parts and the attachments are visible
and easy to undo. The corner bumpers
now have the same exposed fasteners for
easier replacement. The steel bumper is also
covered by a thick polypropylene coat that
largely regains its form if damaged.
The towing member is one piece of cast
iron. It’s strong enough to hold upto 32
tonnes with its tow hook. And the fact that
the towing member is exposed means,
you can use it like a ladder to climb up
the front. Wherever you step you’ll find it’s
solid, nothing is going to break or crack. A
handle opens so that the towing pin can be
accessed when needed.
Stronger headlamp with
protective mesh.
Sturdy mirror and brackets.
Improved engine mounting.
Cab mounting.
Robust rear-view mirrors with sturdier
mountings withstand rough treatment, thus
also giving a steady image in the mirror.
Four point engine mounting optimised to
reduce road induced vibrations and improve
road handling. Rear engine mounting with
more rubber increases insulation, improves
ride comfort and durability. Front engine
anchorages made of aluminium instead of
cast iron in order to save weight.
Four point coil suspension with shock
absorbers with Vertical stroke of + / - 50 mm
to reduce the risk of bottoming out even in
the worst road conditions.
The attachments of the lights are sturdy
enough to safeguard the lamp bulbs from
vibrations and keep the lamp bodies in
place, even if you happen to bump into
something. A new headlight protection mesh
protects the headlight from stone chipping,
while keeping the illumination unaffected.
Reinforced bogie structure.
New front suspension geometry.
Inverted Bogie suspension design provides
equal load distribution between both rearforward and rear-rearward axles. Rubberjournalled V-stays and reaction rods provide
better distribution of torsional load to the
Rubber springs between the spring leaves
and axle and two shock absorbers for the
front driven axle contribute to less vibration
of chassis and good comfort under all axle
loads. Rear stabiliser provides torsional
rigidity to the chassis under rough terrain.
Rear bogie suspension is reinforced
to better withstand high loads under
tough conditions. The bogie components
reinforcement includes cross-member,
brackets on both sides of the cross-member,
bump stops, bogie anchorages and V-stays.
New front parabolic leaf suspension design
ensures that the leaves lie flush with each
other only in the middle and at the ends.
This ensures that friction between leaves
is very low, thus giving a smooth and
comfortable ride without any bumps.
The spring leaves are made from special
steel and are dimensioned so that the
load is evenly distributed over each crosssection of the leaf. Front shock absorbers
contribute to the less vibration of chassis.
Front stabiliser ensures better torsional
rigidity during turning of the vehicle at
Power for performance
Pure power and
generous torque
The Volvo D13A440 is a 440 hp, 12.8 litre in-line 6-cylinder engine with an overhead camshaft, 4 valves per
cylinder and unit injectors. The engine meets Euro 3 exhaust emission regulations. It is designed to ensure
excellent driving characteristics, high reliability and excellent fuel efficiency. The timing gear is located at the rear
of the engine, which reduces vibration. With a cylinder block and cylinder head made of cast iron, a strong base is
created for a dependable engine.
The Volvo D13A440 engine offers steady flow of power uphill and massive braking power downhill and evens
out the gradients. The engine’s power is available virtually from idling speed, which ensures excellent starting
traction. This power stays with you throughout and maximum torque is available high up the rev range (2200Nm
at 1050-1400 rpm). A wide economic speed range of 1050-1600 rpm helps to get the maximum fuel efficiency.
The Volvo torque curve.
You’ll feel it in the pedal.
Excellent torque at low revs. An extremely
wide max. torque range. Peak torque meets
peak power. Volvo’s leadership in diesel
engine technology is clearly visible once
you start comparing engine curves. You’ll
experience fast acceleration, excellent
pulling power, comfortable low-speed
handling and, not least, a fuel efficient
and pleasurable ride at cruising speed.
Fuel efficiency built-in.
The optimised combustion chamber
geometry. The fast and precise EMScontrolled injection. The high gas-fill ratio.
We could go on listing what makes Volvo
engines hard to beat when it comes to fuel
economy. Your bottom line will reap the
benefits. So will the environment.
Volvo’s famous engine brakes.
Minimise wear on the brake pedal.
Volvo’s patented engine brakes produces
impressive braking forces. Integrated with
I-Shift and the cruise control, it makes
a descent into the gravel pit or mine
comfortable, without compromising safety
or fuel economy.
Accurate engine
management through
Volvo EMS.
Volvo EMS provides precise and
efficient engine control. The
engine control module takes
in data from several sensors,
compares current readings with
stored parameters and adjusts
fuel quantity and injection timing
Gear driven camshaft.
Gear driven camshaft ensures
precise control over the unit
injectors and valve timing. The unit
injectors are positioned vertically
and centrally which provides
extremely fast, well controlled
injection and symmetrical
distribution of the fuel in the
combustion chamber.
Low exhaust and noise
The D13A440 more than meets
the demand for high performance
in conjunction with low exhaust
(Euro 3) and noise emissions. The
crankshaft and camshaft have
hydraulic vibration dampers which
minimise noise and vibration – a
particularly low noise is evident at
idling speed.
Dependable construction
and design.
A strong engine foundation is formed
by a cylinder block and cylinder
head made of cast iron. The lower
part of the cylinder block has a
steel reinforced ladder frame – this
minimises vibration and increases
rigidity. The timing gear is located at
the rear of the engine which reduces
the number of components.
i-shift for mining
Shift to I-Shift
The new Volvo FMX 440 19.5 Cu.m Tipper comes fitted with I-Shift transmission AT2612D, which is a 12-speed
electronically controlled splitter and range-change automated transmission, installed with advanced software
optimised for mining operations. It is characterised by a fast gear changing system featuring minimum interruption
in torque delivery during gear changing. Because the gearbox has such a large ratio span, it has capacity for both
high starting traction and high average speed.
Having the right ratio for the right speed at the right time is what the I-Shift transmission technology is all
about. By continuously monitoring the road gradient, vehicle speed, acceleration, torque demanded by the
particular road, weight, rolling and air resistance; the I-Shift can instantly predict and select the most appropriate
ratio for efficient utilisation of the engine without driver intervention. In short, it knows when and where a shift
would be beneficial.
The smooth gear shifting on the other hand reduces the stress on the driveline and tyres and hence increases
the life span of the drive units and reduces the maintenance cost.
And you always have the option of using the manual mode – perhaps if you want to be absolutely sure of
staying in the same gear through a patch of slippery terrain. It’s the best of both worlds for the driver – and the
Fast gear changing system with
short torque interruption.
Driving program for optimum
Strong and dependable
I-Shift is a very flexible gear changing
system. In Auto mode, gears change
automatically even with the cruise control
engaged. In sensitive driving conditions,
the driver can switch to the Manual mode
that locks the current gear. In M, the driver
changes gear manually using a button
integrated into the gear lever. Since
clutch operation is regulated by the gear
changing system, there is no clutch pedal.
In Automatic mode, the driver can choose
between the “Performance” and “Economy”
programmes. Gears are changed via a
button on the gear selector. This function
offers different gear change strategies
depending on the road conditions. Economy
mode provides good fuel economy. The
“Performance” mode provides more
aggressive gear changing, and is used when
extra engine power is needed.
All the shafts, bearings and gears are sturdily
dimensioned for high operating reliability
and long service life. A flange-mounted
CVU (Clutch Valve Unit) and integrated
CCA (Concentric Clutch Actuator) including
position sensor replace the externally
mounted clutch cylinder.
Fully sychronised manual transmission
The new Volvo FMX 440 19.5 Cu.m Tipper is also offered with fully synchronised 14-speed splitter-range manual
gearbox with cable controlled shifting matched perfectly to the engine characteristics. Close and well balanced
ratios make it easy for the truck to climb steep gradients and facilitate smooth acceleration. Extreme low crawler
ratio 16.41:1 improves startability when hauling heavy loads in difficult driving conditions.
How it works.
It may seem strange. Beneath the
surface of I-Shift, the archetype of
modern transmissions hides an oldschool unsynchronised manual
gearbox. (Hence the compact
design and low internal losses). But
of course there’s more to I-Shift than
that. The secret lies in the intelligent
electronic control unit. It’s responsible
for controlling the pneumatic system
that handles the clutch and shifts.
By constantly receiving information
about vehicle speed, acceleration,
weight, road grade, torque demand
and more, it can carry out every
shift with extreme precision. It also
communicates closely with the
engine, which in turn adjusts revs
and engine-brake effect for fast and
comfortable shifting.
Eases your mind and
your left foot.
Let I-Shift save you fuel.
The money will roll right in.
Driving I-Shift is a real pleasure. Without
the clutch pedal, you can safely sit back
and concentrate on the other two. I-Shift
uses its built-in intelligence to quickly and
automatically choose the right gear at all
times. And the software provides shifting
skills that are impossible for even the best
of drivers to match. Still, if you want to get
more involved, you can. The buttons on the
shift selector allow you to step in and shift
gear manually.
I-Shift is designed to save fuel. First of all,
the internal losses are low – actually lower
than on manual gearboxes. But it’s the
electronics that really make the difference.
When driving in Economy mode, every gear
change is timed precisely, to let the engine
work at its most efficient rpm range. And
then there’s I-Roll. It’s a unique feature
used when driving downhill, automatically
disengaging the engine to make use of
the truck’s momentum instead of fuel. The
result - upto 2% lower fuel consumption.
More productivity.
I-Shift for mining is installed with some
groundbreaking features which ensure
high vehicle availability even in deep
gradient or slushy road conditions. The
features like Enhanced Performance (P+)
mode, Heavy Duty (HD) mode, Queue
driving, Power launch etc. provides high
torque to the vehicle when required,
thereby improving productivity.
more load carrying capacity
Stronger for
more load
The new Volvo FMX 440 19.5 Cu.m Tipper offers increased load carrying
capacity with a new 33 tonne rear tandem axle with 4 planetary gears
on the hub. The front axle design has been improved with 10 tonne hub
bearing. Rear bogie & front suspension is reinforced and redesigned to
better withstand high loads under tough conditions. With the improved
axles and suspension, the truck is rated at 51 tonnes of Gross Vehicle
New 33 tonne rear axle.
Strengthened front axles.
RTH3312 is tandem axle with hub
reduction approved for maximum axle
loading of 33 tonnes. Tandem drive offers
excellent traction and superb pulling power.
The result is excellent get-you-there ability
and low tyre wear. The reduction at hubs
takes places at 4 planetary gears, giving
more uniform and steady load distribution,
resulting in higher truck vehicle availability.
Front axles of the new Volvo FMX 440
have been strengthened at the hub. A
new 10 tonne hub bearing is fitted on
both the front axles, which enhances
reliability of the product under heavy load
condition. Twin front axles combination of
Volvo FMX 440 is technically approved for
18 tonnes load.
Stronger chassis.
Mining tyres.
The chassis frame is made from highstrength steel. Its front section is bent
outwards to accommodate the cab
and engine, and has the same material
thickness (8 mm) in the web and the
flanges. Frame is reinforced with 5 mm
thick inner liner, made from high-strength
steel, which runs from the front of frame to
end of frame.
12-24 cross-ply mining tyres ensure
better footprint of the vehicle in rough
mining roads, while carrying heavy
load. It also helps in improving the
ground clearance of the vehicle, to
ensure unhindered operation in off-road
increased productivity
Bigger body for
more capacity
With improved load carrying capacity and high horsepower engine, the volumetric capacity of the tipper body is
also improved to bring high productivity advantage to the customer.
The new Volvo FMX 440 comes factory-fitted with 19.5 Cu.m tipper body for overburden and mineral
applications. The body comes in two variants – Rock Body (RB) and Exhaust Heated Body (EHB) for materials
with different moisture content. The higher capacity body enables the customer to get high productivity without
much brunt on the fuel efficiency. Ruggedness in-built in design and construction ensures enhanced
life of the body under tough operating conditions.
