The rigid haulers may be new, but they have a rich history that dates back more than 70 years to when the team of technical experts and engineers introduced the world's first off-road dump truck from the Volvo CE facility in Motherwell, Scotland. Now backed by the Volvo CE design and manufacturing core values, the D-Series rigid haulers are built at the same facility that has produced rigid haulers for decades. Blending a strong heritage, technical expertise and modern processes, the latest haulers provide customers with a high quality, reliable and productive equipment.


Efficient and intelligent, the Volvo haulers boast a competitive power-to-weight ratio, effective gearing, and optimum weight distribution, enabling operators to meet productivity targets faster. With impressive tractive effort, generated by the complete drivetrain design and configuration the rigid haulers are the ideal machines to traverse the steep slopes often found on mining and quarrying worksites. By enhancing torque to the low-geared rear axle, the complete drivetrain calibration supplies high levels of rimpull, resulting in excellent productivity on poor ground conditions and steeper inclines.


The rigid haulers are not just productive machines in the short term, but continue working over a long service life, ensuring greater machine availability and a significant reduction in maintenance and repair costs. To meet tough job site conditions, the durable machines have been rigorously tested under extreme working conditions to achieve high machine and component longevity. Straightforward in design, the haulers are equipped with a frame assembly that incorporates a reserve of structural strength well beyond the requirements of every demanding job site conditions. With a balanced weight distribution, thanks to a centrally mounted transmission, and a low center of gravity, all load impacts are equally distributed across the tires. Able to withstand extreme structural stresses, the rigid haulers' high-strength chassis absorbs shocks and vibrations from road conditions and load processes, for greater structural longevity and lower cost of operation through reduced maintenance. 


In order to guarantee a long service life and maximum uptime, regular service inspections are required to spot potential problems before they occur. Accessing the machine is safe and easy, thanks to anti-slip steps and secure walkways. From both the wide platform and ground level, technicians can safely access conveniently grouped checkpoints with minimal tooling. The centrally mounted transmission provides ease of access without the need to remove other components. Inside the cab, the operator has access to top-level diagnostic data via the dashboard for fast analysis and solutions.
