The new Volvo R60 rigid hauler offers higher fuel efficiency, durability and lower total cost of ownership 

Payload capacity and volume

With a payload capacity of 55 tonnes and a 36 cu m body volume, the Volvo R60 rigid hauler can transport more materials in each cycle, enabling more efficient mining and quarrying operations. The V-shaped body minimises carry-back and optimises load retention, while the optional On-Board Weighing system provides real-time payload insights for the operator.

Fuel efficiency

Fuel is often the biggest cost in mining and quarrying operations, which is why the Volvo R60 is equipped with Volvo Dynamic Shift Control to adapt gear selection to varying conditions and an ECO mode that defaults to the most efficient gear shifting schedule. The auto engine-idle shut-down feature also eliminates unnecessary fuel consumption and engine wear.

Durability and performance

The R60 hauler is built to last, with a 60,000-hour life frame and components designed for long-lasting performance. The low centre of gravity and balanced weight distribution provide rock-solid stability and evenly distribute loads and stresses across the machine. Additionally, the V-shaped body is constructed from high-impact and high-abrasion resistant steel, minimising the number of panels and welds for greater durability and lower repair costs over the machine’s lifetime.

Operator comfort

The Volvo R60 features a high-strength, flexible chassis and responsive MacPherson strut with lower wishbone connection to absorb shocks and vibrations. The air-suspended seat, ergonomically positioned displays, and responsive fingertip controls all contribute to an effortless operation, improving efficiency and minimising operator fatigue.

Remote monitoring and site optimisation

The Volvo CareTrack telematics system enables remote machine monitoring and helps boost efficiency. Volvo Site Simulation helps get get recommendations on the optimum fleet configuration and site set-up from the local dealer.
