Let it roll. And save up to 2% fuel. You’d be surprised to learn how seldom you actually need the driven front axle to be engaged, even in the toughest of terrains. A test carried out in a desert (and that’s about as sandy as road conditions get), showed that the frontwheel drive could be disengaged more than a staggering 95% of the time. ATC takes advantage of this. By automatically disengaging the front axle when it’s not needed, it can reduce your fuel consumption by up to 2% (based on a regional haul driving cycle). Don’t worry. It’s all well protected. The Volvo FMX chassis has been designed to protect all vital parts from damage. The parallel and link rods are all placed in line with the axle, inside the axle-casing envelope. The brake chambers and fuel tanks are also well protected. Furthermore, the driven front axle has the same position as the non-driven axle, which provides an approach angle of up to 28°, a benefit when climbing steep gradients. The driven front axle is now also available on models with rear air suspension, providing a ground clearance of 300 mm. 0.5 No compromise on driving. No compromise on steering. Maximum traction. Without delay. Without a driven front axle, you may risk getting stuck. But when it’s engaged, it inevitably impairs the manoeuvrability of the truck. This is where ATC, unlike permanent systems, offers the best of both worlds. When the driven front axle is engaged, you have all the traction you need, and when it’s disengaged (which it is most of the time), the grip of the front tyres can be dedicated to steering, greatly improving the manoeuvrability of your truck. The system is very fast and reliable. If the sensors in the wheels detect any loss of traction, the dog clutch to the front axle engages automatically in half a second. It then stays engaged until you release the accelerator and have sufficient traction again. ATC requires no driver interaction – it just works. However, a dashboard switch provides the possibility to manually engage the front axle, or, when the driving conditions get extremely rough, engage all the diff locks. Lower fuel consumption, less wear and better manoeuvrability – automatically. Every driven front axle Volvo FMX now comes with the revolutionary Automatic Traction Control (ATC) as standard. 6 7 cab exterior How to recognise a true construction truck. The robust design of Volvo FMX is clearly different from all other trucks. Here are the details that make it stand out. Details that make a great difference for the drivers’ daily work. 8 Entry step. Mirrors. High air intake. A low, foldable step makes it easier to enter trucks with an X-high chassis. All three steps have an anti-slip design. The extra light in the door aids safe entry. Robust rear-view mirrors with sturdy mountings, that withstand rough treatment. Slim mirror arms for good forward and lateral vision. High air throughput protected from dust. Volvo iron mark. Footstep in front. Moved up, closer to the driver. High and mighty, just like the truck. Be proud of driving a Volvo. The whole sturdy lower front can work as a step. Just climb up on it. For even better access when cleaning the windscreen, there’s the option of an extra step on the front bumper. 9 i-shift Forget the gearbox. Just drive. 20 % Eases your mind and your left foot. Let I-Shift save you fuel. The money will roll right in. The reinforced I-Shift. For severe duty applications. Driving I-Shift is a real pleasure. Without the clutch pedal, you can safely sit back and concentrate on the road. 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 almost impossible for even the best of drivers to match. Still, if you want to get more involved, you can. The lever on the shift selector allows you to step in and change gear manually, if needed. 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 rev range. And then there’s the option of I-Roll. It’s a feature used when driving downhill, automatically disengaging the engine to make use of the truck’s momentum instead of fuel. If you drive in extremely tough conditions, you will appreciate the reinforced I-Shift. It has been designed exclusively for environments where you frequently climb or descend gradients of above 10%, or drive in extremely rough terrain. Previously only a manual gearbox or the automatic Powertronic were available for these assignments but now the I-shift is available and more than up for the task. How would you like your I-Shift? Software packages make it possible to tailor I-Shift to your driving conditions. Choose from four add-on packages – Construction, Distribution, Long Haul or Heavy Duty. In addition, several options are available on Long Haul applications such as I-See, crawler gears and additional power take-off functionality. For a complete overview, see page 48. How it works. It may seem strange. Beneath the surface of I-Shift, the hallmark of modern transmissions hides an old-school 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 and engine braking. Also available as an accessory. Now slower than ever. Turn the page to learn more. 11 i-shift WITH CRAWLER GEARS The fastest way to productivity? Start wherever you want. If you transport heavy loads, you know that starting from a standstill can sometimes be difficult, especially on hilly terrain or in poor road conditions. Equip your FMX with crawler gears and this will be a worry of the past. Your startability is dramatically improved, and the strain on the clutch is reduced by up to 75%, saving you from unnecessary repairs. Slow down. I-Shift just got even more versatile and easy to drive. The automated gearbox is now available with the choice of one or two crawler gears, plus the additional option of extra reverse gears. Crawl slow, run lean. Perfect control in any direction. Say yes to more jobs. Can crawler gears really help boost your fuel economy? Sure. Because previously, you often had to be willing to sacrifice fuel economy for startability. But thanks to the crawler gears, we may be able to specify your truck with a faster rear axle ratio, allowing you to stay on cruising speed at much lower revs when you’re driving on road and further reduce your fuel consumption. Low-speed manoeuvring is one of the most challenging aspects of the job. Thanks to a transmission ratio of up to 32:1 (and up to 37:1 in reverse), the crawler gears let you drive slower than ever – half the speed compared to a regular I-Shift. You always have total control with a lower maneuvering speed, making it easy to park with precision. Crawler gears add to the versatility of the truck, letting you use the same truck for a host of different driving conditions and operations. Drive both on-road and off-road? Need to transport extreme loads? Work at high altitudes? Special low-speed applications? No problem. slim gears The crawler gear module only adds 120 mm to the length and 48 kg to the weight of I-Shift. 12 find all gearbox specifications on pages 48–50. 13 cab interior It’s dirty out there. Yet clean and homely in here. Audio with possibilities. Plenty of room for your gear. Advanced interior lighting. Whatever you want to listen to, the audio system has options to suit you. Mp3, wma or m4a? CDs, USB stick, smartphone or via the aux input? Anything goes. You can even listen to the radio. Find the complete table of specifications on page 55. The spacious front, rear and exterior storages can be tailored to your needs and are accompanied by plenty of convenient compartments for smaller items. (Globetrotter cab only) The energy-efficient and powerful light sources make for fantastic in-cab lighting. All are easily controlled in three pre-set steps or with the dimmer. When driving in the dark – switch to the red lights to preserve your night vision. Room for work. Electronic Climate Control. Bed for rest and sleep. Stay in bed. A comfortable driver’s seat, splendid visibility and lots of space make your work more enjoyable and safer. A good overview of the dashboard, plus every switch and stalk is within easy reach making driving easier and safer. Manual air conditioning is standard with the option of electronic climate control ensuring you always have a comfortable in cab climate. Just set your preferred temperature. And with the new My Truck app, you can control the heater remotely. Don’t compromise on sleep quality just because you spend your night in the cab. The lower bed is 70 cm wide, features 16 cm pocket springs and a choice of three different firmness levels. The sleeper control panel lets you control the interior lights, alarm clock, parking heater, audio system, windows and locks without leaving the bunk. Electric drying cupboard. Raven colour. Electronic remote key. Electric parking brake. Built in bird bath. A quick way to dry your clothes, towels and shoes. Fits on the upper bunk or cab wall. Energy-efficient, quiet and easy to store. Raven is the colour of the dashboard. It is especially developed for the construction environment as it is easy to keep clean. It’s more than a key. Lock or unlock from a distance or turn on the lights to approach the cab safely. And, if you’re feeling threatened, just push the panic button to blast the horn. The electrically-controlled parking brake is controlled by an easy access dashboard lever. Automatically engaged at key-off, and – with a little help from EBS – it automatically releases when pulling away when the I-shift gearbox is specified. The bird bath is built in on the top of the dashboard. It’s a practical place to keep small odds and ends and it’s even got a penholder. All at your thumb tips. A great position to be in. Every driver knows the value of a good seat. The one in the Volvo FMX can be adjusted 20 cm fore-aft and 10 cm vertically. And it features a new cushion that’s more comfortable than ever. New, modern and ergonomic dashboard. Parking heater. Push button and toggle switches for cruise control, audio, phone and the information displays, allow you to keep a tight grip on the wheel. With leather as an option. Easier steering wheel adjustment, more knee space. We have modified the adjustment pedal for the steering wheel and redesigned the steering column to create more space for your knees. 14 The new, gently curved dash not only looks appealing, it’s designed for an ergonomic and comfortable driving position with all switches, instruments and storage within easy reach. Waiting out in the cold when loading, unloading or having a rest on the roadside? With the parking heater you can always keep a comfortable climate inside the cab. Also available as an accessory. 15 volvo dynamic steering The road ahead is straight. At low speeds, Volvo Dynamic Steering reduces the forces on the driver by up to 85%. Even when it isn’t. At high speeds on paved roads, the system softens potholes and prevents disturbances from reaching the steering wheel. The unique Volvo Dynamic Steering drastically reduces the effort it takes to steer, making the job easier and safer whilst minimising the strain on your muscles. It’s perfect for construction trucks, where rough terrains, heavy loads and challenging manoeuvers at low speeds are the part and parcel of the job. Now Volvo Dynamic Steering is also available for dual front axles 8×2, 8×4 and 10×4. The steering corrects course deviations, caused by gusts of wind for example. When the road surface is banked, the steering compensates the slanting and corrects the course. How it works. We have fitted an electrical motor on the steering gear. The motor is controlled – 2,000 times per second – via the truck’s electronic control units and produce torque overlay. The torque is progressive and gives more power to the steering when needed, obtaining a predetermined steering feel, independent of load and tyres. This results in a totally different driving experience – reassuringly predictable. 16 Reversing is far less demanding, and the steering wheel automatically returns to its neutral position when you’re done. Volvo Dynamic Steering is especially well suited for trucks with multiple rear axles and/or dual front axles. 17 the lower front How can a bumper affect your uptime? It doesn’t matter how skilled you are. On the narrow, dark stretches of the mine or in the gravel pit it’s easy to bump into something and damage the truck. Thus, the headlights are well anchored and supplied with the option of headlamp protectors. Rough surfaces and rocks must not damage the oil pan. The bumpers are designed to withstand rough treatment catering for knocks and scuffs on-site. The sturdy bumper. It’s made of steel, it’s in three parts and the attachments are visible and easy to undo. This makes it easy to change the part that is damaged. So if you run into a pile of rubble it’s no big deal. Perhaps you don’t even notice any damage on the bumper. This is because the steel bumper is also covered by a thick polypropylene centre section, that will return to its original form if damaged. 18 Tougher front bumper – with greater collision resistance. The complete lower front is made as a box construction. Every part of it interacts, making the construction very sturdy, but at the same time resilient in a collision with a car. At Volvo we have mistreated this truck in our tests, more than you ever will dream of. And we are now convinced that this is the sturdiest front bumper in the industry. The skid plate. This protecting skid plate under the engine is really worth its name. It is 3 mm thick and doesn’t only protect the engine sump, but the hoses and cooler too. Everything that is vulnerable when driving off-road is protected, even when you reverse. The option of the skid plate has another advantage too; if you drive in a very dusty environment the plate reduces dust vortices under the truck. 19 Construction air suspension for driven front axle The rear air suspension is now also available for Volvo FMX with a driven front axle - 4×4, 6×6, 8×6 and 10×6. A streamlined belly-line. Better traction and higher average speed Optimized rear axle pressure on every axle means better traction, thanks to the air suspension. The driver can adjust axle load distribution for better traction if needed. Air suspension gives less vibration into the truck and you will get a better driving comfort, especially when unloaded contributing to a higher average speed. At least the truck has one. Air bellows mounted above the axle The air bellows are better protected and their new position contributes to the high ground clearance. Compared to traditional leaf suspension, air suspension offers many benefits. It provides a smoother ride, regardless of the road conditions – saving the truck, the cargo and, most importantly, the driver from additional wear. We offer a rear air suspension especially developed for construction trucks, this offers high ground clearance (at least 300 mm) and is tough enough to handle rough terrain. Stabilisers located in the centre of the bogie The position of the stabiliser bar results in less torsion forces on the chassis and better roll and tipping stability. It also contributes to the high ground clearance. High bogie load Tandem Design: 26 tonnes. Tridem Design: 36 tonnes. 20 comfort and flexibility Air suspension provides outstanding driving comfort and makes it possible to vary the ground clearance. No parts of the suspension lay outside the rear tyre envelope. This makes it easier to adapt the chassis for applications such as an asphalt tipper working with a road paver. Protected brakes Don’t worry. No parts of the braking system are positioned beneath the rear axle. That’s why you can be sure that the truck can handle all obstacles. High ground clearance 300 mm under the stabilisers. 335 mm under the differential. 21 towing device 32 tonnes. Sometimes it can be more than a little troublesome out there. You simply get stuck. Therefore it’s reassuring to know that Volvo FMX is equipped with a towing device that really pulls its weight. Take a firm and easy grip. With one simple grip, you can release the towing device to connect a tow bar. The device has passed tests with lateral pull/ push forces of an astonishing 32 tonnes at a maximum angle of 15°. 22 This is why you can trust the towing device. It is part of a cross member which is made of high-strength steel. The whole assembly is stably mounted in the longitudinal frame members. It provides not only a very strong structure, but it’s also a great solution to counteract the vibration of the chassis, thus enhancing driving comfort. 23 TANDEM AXLE LIFT Lower fuel consumption and turning radius? Just raise the drive axle. Up to 4% lower fuel consumption when unladen. Because of the added friction and rolling resistance, drive axles usually consume quite a lot of fuel – all of the time. Not so with Tandem Axle Lift. By disengaging and raising the drive axle when it isn’t needed, you can reduce your fuel consumption when unladen. Enjoy better turning radius. Get a grip. Tandem Axle Lift can effectively convert a 6×4 to a 4×2, or an 8×4 to a 6×2. Just like when raising a dead axle, this significantly improves the manoeuvrability of the truck by shortening the turning radius. In fact, a 6×4 with a wheelbase of 4.6 metres, for example, can reduce its turning radius by over a metre. As long as the axle load limits allow, the axle can be raised to shift all the weight to one drive axle, for better grip and traction. It can even be performed while driving at low speeds. Tandem Axle Lift is a unique feature, allowing your 6×4 or 8×4 to combine the traction and load capacity of four wheel drive with the driveability and efficiency of two wheel drive – all in one vehicle. DOG clutch The inter-axle differential is replaced by a dog clutch, allowing the rearmost axle to be completely disengaged. Optimum drive mode in 15 seconds. Tandem Axle Lift is perfect if you drive heavily loaded in one direction and empty in the other. When the truck is unloaded, you just push a button on the dashboard to disengage and raise the drive axle. As soon as you load the truck, the drive axle automatically lowers itself and engages again to ensure maximum traction and driveability. It only takes about 15 seconds from start to finish, so you don’t waste any valuable time. 24 Air spring An air bellow between the second drive axle and the chassis allows the axle to be raised or lowered. 25 driver support systems Even a first-rate driver can need some extra support on the road. 26 Stretch Brake. Emergency brake light. In certain situations, such as turning or driving downhill on a slippery road, the trailer risks catching up with the truck, creating a hazardous jack-knife effect. The Stretch Brake is designed to stop that from happening. By pulse braking the trailer, the vehicle combination is stretched, and the danger reduced. The system can be automatically activated in risky situations, at speeds up to 30 mph. Stretch Brake is now available for rigid drawbar trucks as well as tractors. If you need to slam on the brake in an emergency, the brake lights flash rapidly to alert the vehicles behind you. Lane Changing Support. Electronic Stability Program. Driver Alert Support. The blind-spot area on the passenger side can easily hide other road users. Lane Changing Support (LCS) is equipped with a radar that checks this area when you activate the indicator. If the area is not clear, you are notified by a warning sound and a flashing icon by the mirror. The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) applies the brakes individually on each wheel. This provides stability for the entire vehicle combination, thus counteracting jack-knifing, roll over and trailer swing. ESP is available for tractors and rigid trucks with two or three axles. Driver Alert Support is an intelligent system that tracks your driving behaviour, complementing the camera-based Lane Keeping Support, which now comes as standard. If it differs from normal and indicates tiredness, you are alerted by a signal and a message in the display, advising you to take a break. Also available as an accessory. Adaptive Cruise Control, collision warning and emergency brake. Follow the traffic rhythm without effort. The radar-based Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) keeps a safe distance to the vehicle in front by controlling the accelerator and all available brakes. If there’s a risk of collision, warning lights are projected on the windscreen – and if an impact is imminent, the automatic emergency brake quickly comes to your assistance. Available on 2 and 3 axle rear suspended models. The availability of these options depends on the Volvo FMX model selected. 27 volvo diesel engines Up to 540 hp of pure power. Rear timing mechanism common rail injection inline six A compact and weight saving design, powering the air compressor along with the power steering, oil, and fuel feed pumps.

View the complete specs for all engines on page 46. Fuel efficiency built-in. More than ever. VEB and VEB +. Up to 510 hp of braking effect. 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. And we’ve just improved it even further – without compromising performance. Your bottom line will reap the benefits. So will the environment. Minimise wear on the brake pedal. Volvo’s patented engine brakes absorb up to an impressive 375 kW (510 hp) on the D13 and 290 kW (394 hp) on the D11. Integrated with I-Shift and the cruise control, it makes a descent into the gravel pit or quarry comfortable, without compromising safety or fuel economy. Located at the rear, close to the flywheel, the engine PTO can deliver a massive torque output. Learn more on page 51. Recycles the crankcase gases, for improved air quality around the vehicle. 29 Tridem Take the curves in your stride. If you drive a lot on decent roads and a large percentage unladen (which most construction trucks do), the air-suspended tridem is an excellent option. The three-axle bogie improves close-quarter manoeuvrability and offers the possibility to raise one of the axles (or even two) for lower fuel consumption and increased traction. tight turning circles Tridem gives the truck a tighter turning radius, saving time when navigating narrow spaces. Steer tightly. Ride comfortably. The tridem bogie comes with a choice of a tag axle (behind the drive axles) or a pusher axle (in front of the drive axles), or even both (if you drive an 8×2). Since the axles can be hydraulically steered, the turning radius is much tighter than it is on a truck with dual front axles, making it easy to manoeuvre challenging routes. Plus, the air suspension makes for a comfortable ride, especially when unladen. 30 Raise the axle and save fuel. Less weight, higher payload. If you want to reduce your fuel consumption, you want to minimise your rolling resistance when driving on the road. This is where tridem comes to your help. When a dead axle isn’t needed to distribute the weight, it’s automatically raised. By doing so, fuel consumption and tyre wear can be minimised. To avoid overload, the axle is then automatically lowered as soon as you load the truck. The tridem is now available in a lightweight variant. Depending on the application, by removing the innerliner and reducing the weight of several other components, we’ve managed to cut 150–200 kilograms. 31 headlights Enlightening news. side turn indicator main beam The powerful head-lights are improved and give a strong, wide beam with an extremely long range making construction assignments more relaxed and much safer. dipped beam indicator Unique daytime running light LED strips, forming a unique V-shape, shows that a Volvo is approaching. 300 m Leading main beam. While driving in the dark, Volvo FMX is a particularly good friend. The headlights produce a powerful beam, providing you with an early view on what is happening down the road. And, just as important, other road users will see you. 32 Also available as an accessory. On at dusk and off at dawn. Automatically. The headlights now come with automatic switching as an option. Just like on a car, a sensor detect when the dipped beam needs to be activated and does this automatically for you. And as soon as the light conditions allow, it automatically switches back to daytime running lights. Bi-Xenon. Equip the headlights with Bi-Xenon to experience a new level of brightness. They also offer longer service life compared with regular halogen lamps. Only available on models with rear air suspension. Headlamp protection instrument cluster Here’s all the information you will need. Secondary Information Display (SID). To the left of the instrument cluster, you’ll find the home of infotainment – an integrated display. It’s called the Secondary Information Display and contains plenty of features. Some of them require the SID-High variant (shown), which is a high-end 7" colour display. audio system Lets you enjoy full information on each track, and navigate easily among them. driver times feedback Helps you handle your driving and resting times, so you’ll know when it’s time to take a break. exterior vision cameras SID-High can show the input of up to four cameras in full resolution. phone dynafleet Connects via Bluetooth so you can browse your phonebook, talk into the built-in microphone and listen through the speakers. No separate display needed. All information from Volvo’s transport management system is now integrated in the SID-High. The SID-high is required if office to vehicle messaging is specified, along with a remote keyboard supplied in the cab. Driver Information Display. Convenient 4" display showing a lot of additional information. Choose what you want to see, using the steering wheel switches. Information is central. A quick glance at the centre of the speedometer is enough to get key information about gear, I-Shift mode, (adaptive) cruise control, auxiliary brakes and tachometer. 34 Gauges your way load indicator Plenty of status indicators and trip information. The customised view lets you select up to three favourites. The enhanced load indicator option allows you to precisely monitor axle load. Gross vehicle weight, axle loads and bogie loads are all shown separately, so you can easily check they are within the limits, on the truck as well as on the trailer. Also available as an accessory. Understandable error messages Check on the tyre pressure No perplexing fault codes. The error messages quickly and accurately tell you what’s wrong – in plain text. The new tyre pressure monitor provides an easy, yet effective, way to reduce fuel consumption and avoid unnecessary tyre wear. 35 volvo SERVICES We’ll support you all the way. supporting your daily work And on your way.

Delivers more steering force at low speeds, reduces steering kicks and keeps the steering wheel straight forward when braking on split friction. The steering wheel returns automatically to neutral position both when driving forward and when reversing. Volvo Dynamic Steering is now available for all axle configurations except those with a driven front axle (4×4, 6×6, 8×6 and 10×6). Allows the rearmost drive axle on the tandem bogie to be disengaged and raised, to reduce fuel consumption and turning radius. By pushing a button on the dashboard, the driver can raise the axle when the truck is unloaded. When the truck is loaded, the axle automatically lowers itself and engages. Tandem Axle Lift is available for 6×4 and 8×4 configurations (with a tandem bogie) equipped with disc brakes. Automatic Traction Control (ATC) Automatically engages the driven front axle when it’s needed and disengages it when the terrain permits, saving fuel and improving manoeuvrability. ATC comes as standard on all Volvo FMX configurations with a driven front axle (4×4, 6×6, 8×6 and 10×6). 8×4 RADD-BR VOLVO DYNAMIC STEERING = Drive axle. = Dead axle (tag, pusher or front axle). 42 43 1 chassis chassis 1 Chassis layout brakes The chassis is developed to give optimum space for superstructure and equipment. Here are some of the features, which may vary depending on the truck’s specification. EBS (Electronically-controlled Brake System) provides superior response, performance and brake feel, while providing access to a number of handy features. EBS is now available both for disc brakes and Z-cam drum brakes (for a selected range of axle configurations and chassis heights). Upgrade your brake system by adding the EBS Medium package or any of the additional options. EBS MEDIUM In addition to the EBS Standard package, EBS Medium adds the following features. Automatic Parking Brake Release The parking brake is released when the driver pushes the accelerator pedal and a gear is selected (only I-Shift gearbox). EBS Status Control EBS status monitoring via the TEA2+ vehicle electronic system and Volvo Tech Tool. tractor rigid Towbars tractor rigid Centrally mounted, semi-undermounted and undermounted towbars for centre-axle trailers. Towbars can be fitted at intervals of 25 mm. Battery box (BBOX-EF) Frame Body builder hole-row Lining Wear Analysis To free space on the sides, the battery box can be placed between the chassis frames at the rear (BBOX-EF). The upper hole-row is reserved for the body builder. All brackets in the upper hole-row have an offset and an 8 mm spacer. No rivets are used in the upper hole-row. Brake lining warning – calculates the remaining mileage available with the current brake linings. (Only for disc brakes.) Fuel tanks AdBlue tank Aluminium or steel tanks in volumes from 150 to 900 litres. Maximum fuel volume is 1,480 litres for a 4×2 tractor. A 50-litre AdBlue tank can be mounted on the top of the frame, behind the cab, allowing for more fuel capacity (ADTP-BC). AdBlue tanks APM Plastic. Volumes from 32 to 90 litres. The AdBlue pump is integrated in the AdBlue tank module. The Air Production Modulator (APM) is placed between the chassis frames in order to create more space for chassis-mounted equipment such as fuel tanks. Certified installation permits up to 36 tonnes load. An ISO fifth wheel with L-shaped profiles at different heights is included in the range, offering considerable freedom of choice. The flange-mounted fifth wheel is a low-weight variant since it does not require any attachment plate. The fifth wheel’s height above the chassis is from about 140 mm. Integrated lubrication and trailer connection indicator are available as options for specific variants. 44 In addition to the program packages there are the following options: Hill Start Aid The brakes are only released once there is sufficient engine torque to propel the vehicle forward. Fifth wheels additional options ESP (Electronic Stability Program) The brake stability system applies the brakes individually on each wheel, thereby providing stability for the entire vehicle combination and counteracting jack-knifing, rollover and trailer swing. ESP fulfils the legislation of Electronic Vehicle Stability Control, and is available for 2- and 3-axle vehicles. Stretch Brake Enables the driver to request pulse braking of the trailer. The brake is then automatically activated and the risk of jack-knifing is minimised. Emergency Brake Light When you panic brake from speeds above 50 km/h, the brake lights flash with four flashes per second. Hydraulic retarder Gearbox-mounted compact retarder with a max effect of 440 kW. Free frame space The chassis packaging can be moved rearwards to create space for crane legs or other equipment. (FAA10; 500 mm), (FAA20; 600 mm). Crane preparation Crane plates on the chassis can be factory mounted. Rear air suspension and short rear end The rear overhang can be shorter thanks to a redesigned forward-mounted stabiliser bar. This is a benefit for construction applications and improves the asphalt-layer interface and swapbody applications.

The new engine components serve two main purposes: to improve gas-flow and make sure the exhausts reach the after-treatment system at optimum temperature. The DOC produces the NO2 necessary for the DPF to efficiently combust the particulates. In cold conditions, it also provides the heat needed for regeneration. In the mixing zone, the exhausts are sprayed with AdBlue. When they reach the catalyst, the nitrogen oxides (NO X) are efficiently transformed into harmless nitrogen gas and water. 7th injector On D13K460, D13K500 and D13K540, a special diesel injector is used for heat management of the DOC and ensures the efficiency of the DPF and good SCR functionality. Diesel particulate filter (dpf) The filter collects particulate matter (PM) and stores it until it’s burned off during regeneration. The regeneration is done automatically and the driver doesn’t need to take any action. Ammonia Slip Catalyst (ASC) The last step before the tailpipe where the remaining ammonia (NH 3), if any, is removed.

Choose from four different add-on packages and several optional functions. Reinforced I-Shift For severe duty applications, I-Shift can be ordered in a reinforced version. Basic Shift Strategy Automatic selection of the right starting ratio (1st – 6th gear). The choice of starting gear is influenced by gross weight and road gradient. Performance Shift Gives faster and gentler changes through intelligent utilisation of the engine brake, the vehicle’s clutch and a special transmission brake. I-Shift options Software packages Enhanced Shift Strategy (<80 t) crawler gear(s) and extra reverse gears The reinforced I-Shift can also be equipped with one or two crawler gears and/or extra reverse gears. Basic Gear Selection Adjustment Makes it possible to adjust gear selection via the gear lever’s buttons during engine braking in automatic mode. Gearbox Oil Temperature Monitor Shows the gearbox oil’s temperature in the information display. By interacting with EBS and ECS, starting and close-quarter manoeuvring are made easier. Maximises the VEB/VEB + braking effect by automatically selecting the right gear so that the engine operates at high revs. When changing gear during engine braking, the wheel brakes are activated to compensate for loss of braking torque. Heavy Duty GCW control (≥80 t) Optimises gear selection for gross combi nation weights above 80 tonnes. By manually switching to long haul mode when driving without load, the driver can enable I-Roll. I-Roll Automatic engagement and disengagement of a freewheel function for the purpose of reducing fuel consumption. I-Roll is used when neither engine power nor engine braking is needed, for instance on flat roads. Launch Control Optimises gear selection and EBS functions for manoeuvring at low speeds. Among other things, ensures that the Hill Start Aid function is only activated on uphill gradients.
