Volvo’s Biggest Hauler to Date - Introducing the A60H

Volvo Construction Equipment launched the new A60H which will be available soon from Pat O’Donnell & Co.

The 55-ton capacity dumper is their largest articulated hauler and has superb reliability thanks to the machines robust design and easy service access.  

This machine is designed for heavy hauling in severe off road operations and provides a long service life, quality, reliability and durability. It is ideal in industries such as Civil Engineering, Construction, Quarrying, Mining and Demolition and Scrap.

More than half of the articulated haulers sold globally by all manufacturers today are within the Volvo A40 size class. The Volvo A60H’s higher payload – a 40% increase on Volvo’s A40 models – significantly lowers the cost-per-tonne ratio for hauler customers. The new size also offers a viable alternative to rigid dump trucks and construction trucks operating on soft, uneven or steep roads, allowing a similar amount of material to be hauled in a shorter cycle time. Using articulated haulers also reduces the level of maintenance required for haul roads on the jobsite, further improving profitability. Good stability, comfort and high hauling speeds are ensured by the matched drivetrain, automatic drive combinations (including 100% differential locks), all-terrain bogie, hydro-mechanical steering and active suspension.

The A60H is powered by a 16-litre Volvo engine, delivering 663 horsepower and has a maximum speed of 34.1 mph. Intelligent systems include MATRIS, CareTrack, and an on-board weighing system.
