The A30G articulated hauler from Volvo Construction Equipment has a turbocharged six-cylinder engine that adheres to Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. The drivetrain and in-line dropbox are designed for high ground clearance, with high rimpull and low fuel consumption. Oil-cooled wet multiple disc brakes reduce maintenance costs and increase uptime, even on muddy or dusty job sites. The retardation system controls downhill hauling speeds using wheel and engine brakes. Automatic traction control (ATC) and differential locks are standard. The ATC system automatically switches between drive combinations to ensure lower fuel consumption or maximum traction when needed. The maintenance-free rotating hitch enables high ground clearance, boosting accessibility and drivability. The centrally positioned ROPS/FOPS-equipped Volvo Care Cab gives the operator a commanding view of the job site, and ergonomically positioned controls are designed for ease of use. 828/650-2000; www.volvo.com/constructionequipment.
