Volvo unveils the A60H: their largest articulated hauler to date
Always available to work, the bigger, more durable and superior, the 60-ton class A60H articulated hauler from Volvo Construction Equipment provides continuous production and superb reliability thanks to its robust design, easy service access and outstanding Volvo dealer network.
The new, 55-tonne (60-ton) capacity A60H is Volvo Construction Equipment’s largest articulated hauler to date – and is always ready to work. Designed for heavy hauling in severe off-road operations, including quarries, opencast mines and large earthmoving operations, the A60H’s long service life, quality, reliability and durability are everything you’d expect from a Volvo, making hauling easier and more efficient.
The A60H is engineered to increase uptime, thanks to its heavy-duty front and rear frames, hitch and wet disc brakes. And that’s not all. Volvo’s proven durability and the support of an extensive array of warranty options, means you never need to worry about getting the job done. Strength and durability are the hallmarks of the A60H articulated hauler.
Volvo CE has come a long way from its original 10-tonne articulated hauler in 1966 – ‘Gravel Charlie’. Fifty years and 50 tonnes later, Volvo is still the world’s leading manufacturer of articulated haulers. It invented the concept and has been developing these machines for over half a century.
