Volvo FM 330 - Designed for the road
Tanker operations, local distribution, refuse handling, construction duties or driving across a continent. The Volvo FM is a workhorse, built for a broad range of tasks. With low overall lifetime cost and a robust but lightweight chassis, it is durable and reliable like no other truck you have ever seen. And with a selection of driveline combinations this Volvo truck is adaptable to your specific business. The Volvo FM is how we define flexibility.
The braking system includes EBS disc brakes with ESP as an option, or alternatively the tried and tested Z-cam brakes. These alternatives can be supplemented with particularly effective auxiliary brakes, such as Volvo Engine Brake (VEB/VEB+) and a retarder.
To suit a variety of needs the Volvo FM can be fitted with several 9 or 14-speed manual gearboxes. All feature servo synchromesh and wire operation, which results in low gear changing force and less lever vibration. The range-change and splitter gearboxes are available in versions intended for different engine torque levels and optionally with overdrive as well.
A range of cab interiors are available – vinyl, textile, plush and leather – and offer an extremely high level of comfort with an ideal driving position, anatomically designed seats, low noise level, high capacity climate control and world class safety.
