Almost 50 years of collaboration with Volvo has helped us achieve success. I have an almost perfect timber truck. If God made a better one, he kept it for himself.

Volvo FH16 FAQ

Its power and capacity to pull really heavy loads has made the Volvo FH16 popular for timber transport, heavy haulage and mining transport. But it can also be built as a fast and comfortable long haul truck, to name just one example.

For really tough conditions where you need all-wheel drive, we recommend the Volvo FMX. However, you can get your Volvo FH16 with a sturdy tandem drive bogie installation, which offers a great combination of load capacity, traction and fuel efficiency.

It depends on how tall you are. Our Globetrotter cab offers a maximum standing height of 205 cm, but if you prioritise space you should opt for the Globetrotter XL or the Globetrotter XXL cab. They both offer a standing height of 220 cm. The latter offers a wider bed and is our most spacious choice.

Among the most comfortable trucks there are. You’ll have plenty of space, a comfortable bed and a pleasant climate regardless of the outdoor temperature. Even if you use lots of power-consuming equipment, there’s no need to worry about the battery status the morning after since you can get your Volvo FH16 with dual batteries and separate circuits for living functions and the engine.

Yes you can! All our D16 engines can run on HVO and some of them run on biodiesel. Depending on your choice, you can reduce your environmental footprint considerably.
