AUTOMATIC TRACTION CONTROL
All the traction
you need.
For driven front axle models.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

volvo SERVICES
We’ll support you
all the way.
supporting your daily work
And on your way.
Dynafleet app.
Fuel advice.
The trucker’s best app.
This app makes it a lot easier to work as
a driver, and hopefully more fun. You can
follow up on your fuel efficiency score and
ranking, alongside your driver times and
points of interest on a map. And you can
also compare your performance with those
of your colleagues. This app is available for
both smartphones or tablets.
At an optional cost this service gives you
access to our fuel management coaches –
true experts in reducing fuel consumption.
Every month they send you enhanced
fuel reports with personalised advice on
how to improve. You can get more advice
via the dedicated help desk, or log on
to the toolbox to find hands-on tips and
inspiration.
With the all new My Truck app installed
on your smartphone, you can monitor
the status of the truck before you get in,
making sure it’s ready to go when you are.
You can control the parking heater,
alarm and door locks and see the vehicle’s
status, for example the levels of fuel,
engine oil and coolant or washer fluid.

New Service Planning.
One step ahead.
Need help?
Just push the button.
Features Online.
Your wireless technician.
Thanks to the telematics gateway
(option), the workshop can access
information such as engine data,
mileage, fuel consumption, diagnostic
trouble codes, driving conditions and
status of crucial components (brake
pads, clutch, battery and air dryer etc.).
This means we can alert you in time,
before you risk an unplanned stop. But
most importantly, we’re always perfectly
prepared when you get to our workshop.
So you’ll be back on the road before
you know it. New Service Planning is
optional in combination with the New
Volvo Gold Contract.
An unplanned stop out in the middle of
nowhere? Volvo Action Service is just a
button push away. Volvo Action Service
On Call is an option, that automatically
connects you to an operator who speaks
your language (the truck checks the
nationality of the card in the digital
tachograph). And once connected, service
is both fast and accurate, because they
already know your chassis ID, position
and possible diagnostic trouble codes.
Some things shouldn’t require a
workshop visit. And now they don’t.
With Features Online, a service
technician can access your vehicle
remotely to calibrate displayed fuel
consumption, fuel tank size (if you’ve
fitted extra tanks) and your preferred
road speed limit. It’s even possible to
enable the load indicator function from
a distance. All you have to do is stop at
the roadside for a short while. Service
has never been quicker. Features
Online is optional in combination with
the New Volvo Gold Contract.
Work Remote.
Volvo Premium Lease.
The electronically controlled suspension
(ECS) improves driving comfort and helps
in making sure the cargo travels safely.
ECS4 is the latest version and offers even
more possibilities, with the Work Remote
as the most prominent example. You
now have perfect control of the vehicle
weight (when a load indicator is specified),
equipment such as PTOs and functions on
the superstructure. You have full control,
regardless of whether you’re sitting behind
the wheel or walking around the truck.
Sometimes it’s smarter not to own your
truck. Volvo Premium Lease gives you
the opportunity to choose a solution
that suits your needs, because it can
include funding, road tax, insurance,
repair and maintenance, and even
replacement tyres.
You will greatly benefit from fixed
and predictable costs for accurate
budgeting, improved cash flow and
reduced capital outlay.

5-AXLE CONFIGURATIONS
An excellent
factory option:
add an extra axle.
Ready to go, without delays
or extra costs.
Full Volvo support
from day one.
We now offer trucks with five axles
directly from our factory. This way, you
get a Volvo FMX that is ready for efficient,
heavy transportation from day one. In
other words, you don’t have to contact
an external supplier for costly and timeconsuming retrofitting of an extra axle.
Moreover, we also deliver your truck with
a full vehicle type approval.
Since we deliver a complete truck to
you, it not only comes with Volvo quality
through and through. You also get full
Volvo warranty and Volvo support. This
means that you always have a truck in
top condition, and that we quickly help
you in all kinds of situations to keep you
going and stay efficient.
Want to transport heavy loads? No problem. We’ve now extended the
Volvo FMX offer to include the five-axle 10×4 configuration as well as
the 10×6 with a driven front axle.
For a wide range of jobs.
The five-axle Volvo FMX is equipped with
dual front axles and an air-suspended
tridem bogie (with a tag axle), allowing
a maximum gross vehicle weight of
56 tonnes. This makes it well suited for
a wide range of applications such as
concrete mixers, fire trucks, sky lifts and
large cranes. And if you’re into heavy
haulage, you might be able to take on
bigger operations and avoid costly
overweight permits. Drive in very rough
terrain? Opt for the 10×6 with a driven
front axle.

Tandem Axle Lift
Active steering system with torque overlay.
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).

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.

Lining Wear Analysis
To free space on the sides, the battery box
can be placed between the chassis frames at

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.
Also available as an accessory.

diesel oxidation catalyst (doc)
Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)
A closed loop butterfly, a waste-gate turbo,
a so-called uncooled EGR and more. 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.

By opting for the right software, you can add
valuable functions to your I-Shift. 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.

Heavy Duty GCW Control (≥80t)
Several functions that adjust gearchanging
and assist starting and driving in poor road
conditions and hilly terrain.
Fuel optimisation
Saves fuel by tailoring the gear changing
strategy to the driving characteristics of
distribution, construction, long haul or heavyduty transports.
Makes it possible to adjust gear selection via
the gear lever’s buttons during start and when
driving in automatic mode. The kick-down
function selects the right gear for maximum
acceleration.
crawler gear(S)
Adds one or two crawler gears, with a
maximum ratio of 32:1, greatly improving
startability, fuel economy and manoeuvrability.
Also requires hardware.
Extra reverse gears
Adds one reverse crawler gear with a ratio of
37:1 for low-speed reversing, and an additional
reverse gear (3rd), that can allow you to start
in high range to back up faster. Also requires
hardware.
I-See
A smart I-Shift software that can store
topographical data and use this information
to save fuel and improve driving comfort. The
data is saved in a database available for other
I-See users. When ordering I-See, the cruise
control I-Cruise is also included. I-Cruise can
also be ordered separately.
Enhanced PTO Functions
Several functions that make power take-off
use easier.

Manual gearboxes
Rear axles
14-speed splitter and range manual gearbox. Cable operation – with separate cables for longitudinal and lateral movements – results in short and
distinct gear settings. Patented synchromesh with servo function means low gearchanging forces. The gearboxes can be fitted with a compact
retarder, power take-off, emergency power steering pump and oil cooler.
