Safer tanker and bulk-goods haulage FOR SAFE, FUEL-EFFICIENT HAULAGE on good, ﬂat roads the 9-litre Volvo FM is the best choice. If you need more power, there’s our 13-litre engine. The new Volvo I-shift is the perfect complement for both trucks. You get superior comfort and excellent fuel economy. To improve driving comfort still further, you can specify the latest generation of Adaptive Cruise Control, which automatically maintains the right gap to the vehicle in front. Our tractors come in a variety of factory-built models, including ADR versions. The Volvo-installed ﬁfth wheel is a light and versatile solution. Air suspension with automatic height adjustment is road and load friendly and protects the expensive tank superstructure. Electronically controlled disc brakes with ESP are available on all tractors with air suspension. Together with the vehicle’s main computer, the optional tyre pressure sensors constantly monitor tyre pressures in the truck and trailer. The truck is easier to handle and safety is enhanced. Improved fuel economy is another beneﬁt gained from having the tyre pressures right. 15 World-class driveability THE EXCEPTIONAL DRIVEABILITY OF THE VOLVO FM is based on a powertrain individually conﬁgured to tackle the job at hand. With two torquey engines, a choice of six power outputs and a wide range of transmissions and rear axles, there is always the ideal solution for your needs. FROM 300 TO 480 BHP Choose our all-new 13-litre engine if you need plenty of power or our 9-litre engine if your priorities are low weight and low fuel consumption. Both the engines in the FM range are in-line six-cylinder, electronically controlled diesel engines with an overhead camshaft, unit injectors and rear-mounted timing mechanism and both are available in Euro 3, Euro 4 and Euro 5 (incentive) options. VOLVO D13A – MORE POWER FROM THE START The Volvo D13A has a displacement of 12.8 litres and is available with 400, 440 and 480 bhp. The torque levels are 2000, 2200 and 2400 Nm respectively, giving impressive starting traction and unsurpassed driveability. VOLVO D9B – OPTIMISED FOR YOUR NEEDS The new version of our economical 9-litre engine, the Volvo D9B, delivers high torque across a wider rev range than before. The Volvo D9B is available with 300, 340 and 380 bhp, with 1500, 1600 and 1700 Nm of torque respectively. The engine is available in several variants optimised for distribution, refuse collection and construction duties, as well as other applications. 16 1000 NM AT THE POWER TAKE-OFF Both the Volvo D9B and the D13A have their timing mechanisms at the rear, which means signiﬁcantly higher torque for power take-off operation. Up to 1000 Nm at a standstill and 650 Nm on the move for the Volvo D9B, and 900 and 650 Nm respectively for the Volvo D13A. INDIVIDUAL SERVICE PROGRAMME FOR MAXIMUM AVAILABILITY In order to ensure maximum availability from your truck, your Volvo dealer can schedule an individual service programme based on driving conditions and application. This means optimum maintenance, and a reduced number of workshop visits. To minimise time in the workshop we have also enhanced our fault-tracing and diagnostics procedures. The oil-change interval for the Volvo D9B is 70,000 km or once a year. For the Volvo D13A, the oil-change interval is up to 100,000 km depending on operation. 17 Fulfils Euro 4 requirements and meets Euro 5 THE VOLVO FM CAN BE certiﬁed to meet the new Euro 4 European emissions regulations. In order to reduce particulate emissions to the required levels, a number of changes have been made to our combustion technology. While after-treatment of exhaust gases reduces the oxides of nitrogen. The system that Volvo and most other producers have chosen is called Selective Catalytic Reduction or SCR. The technology involves injecting a mixture of urea and water known as AdBlue into the engine’s exhaust and converting oxides of nitrogen into harmless nitrogen gas and steam. The truck’s diagnostics system ensures that the exhaust emissions really do meet the legislated levels. If you want to meet the more stringent Euro 5 requirements that come into effect in 2009, we have just the solution for you. Both the Volvo D13A and the Volvo D9B are available in special incentive versions with extremely low emissions. PM MORE POWER FROM EACH DROP OF FUEL Even though it is almost one litre larger in terms of displacement, the Volvo D13A uses less fuel than its predecessor. For operators choosing the Euro 3 variant, this is a straight saving. For Euro 4 and Euro 5 options, this means that the cost of the AdBlue is compensated by reduced diesel fuel consumption. In practice, you gain higher torque and power output without affecting your running costs. The Volvo D9B in Euro 4 option is also more economical. 18 Particulate Matter (soot) 0.18 0.15 EURO 2 0.10 EURO 3 0.05 0.02 0 EURO 5 EURO 4 0 1 2 3 NOx 4 5 6 7 Oxides of Nitrogen CLEANER EXHAUST GASES. Over the past 10 years, exhaust emissions from heavy trucks have decreased considerably. The step from Euro 3 to Euro 4 means that emissions of particulates and oxides of nitrogen will be cut by 80% and 30% respectively. With Euro 5, emissions of oxides of nitrogen will drop 60% from Euro 3 level. QUIETER IDLING The Volvo D13A is quieter than its predecessor. By optimising fuel injection, sound levels during idling have been cut by as much as 2dB(A). ENVIRONMENTAL DECLARATION ON THE INTERNET Would you like to know how the new Volvo FM affects the environment throughout its lifetime? Our Internet-based Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) shows the truck’s full environmental impact from the cradle to the grave. Visit www.volvotrucks.com/environment Enclosed crankcase ventilation for vulnerable environments We are introducing a new type of enclosed, maintenance-free crankcase ventilation system for the Volvo D13A and D9B which eliminates the risk of oil leakage. Ideal for companies that operate in areas where there are tough environmental regulations. 19 VOLVO I-shift for more users VOLVO I-SHIFT IS AN AUTOMATIC GEARCHANGING SYSTEM that combines the robustness of the manual gearbox with the convenience of automatic transmission. Above all else, however, I-shift contributes to low fuel consumption and superior driveability. The new version of I-shift considerably extends its operational area.

It can handle gross combination weights up to 60 tonnes (100 tonnes in special applications). You can use a power take-off and obtain up to 300 Nm while on the move. What is more, retarder performance has been considerably enhanced. Volvo I-shift is available for different types of application. Choose between Basic, Distribution & Construction, Long Haul Fuel & Economy and Heavy Duty. 20 NEW VERSION OF POWERTRONIC MANUAL GEARBOXES For truly heavy construction duties in tough operating conditions, we recommend the new version of our robust, automatic transmission, Powertronic. It is designed to handle the high levels of torque delivered by the 480 bhp Volvo D13A. The new torque converter gives you faster throttle response and in turn better starting traction and hill-climbing ability. Internal losses have been minimised, which has a positive effect on fuel consumption. Powertronic changes gear without any interruption in power delivery, which in turn promotes excellent drive ability on even the poorest surfaces. If you prefer to change gears manually, you will ﬁnd a wide range of manual gearboxes. There is a gearbox designed for your application see pages 34–35 for further details.
