Volvo Trucks North America is bringing its wide range of refuse-focused truck models to WasteExpo 2016, highlighting the versatility and capabilities refuse customers require. Volvo booth no. 2267 will feature three models – a Volvo VNM, VHD and VNL – each designed with the refuse industry in mind.

“Whether for collection, roll off or transfer, our truck lineup serves the refuse industry well in a variety of applications,” said Wade Long, Volvo Trucks director of product marketing. “That capability, combined with Volvo’s quality, durability and fuel efficiency, offers customers a tremendous value proposition.”

Volvo power and the Volvo I-Shift are standard on every model, with additional engine and transmission options available. All Volvo models also come standard with Volvo Remote Diagnostics, a telematics-based proactive diagnostic and repair planning system that helps customers avoid unplanned downtime by proactively monitoring critical fault codes in the engine, aftertreatment system and the Volvo I-Shift automated manual transmission. The system also identifies necessary parts and provides repair instructions, even before the truck arrives for service.

Volvo Trucks will feature three models in booth no. 2267:

Volvo VNM model:

The Volvo VNM model is available as a straight truck or tractor. When configured as a straight truck and spec’d with a heavier front axle, it makes an exceptional platform for automated side loader applications. With a tight turning radius, the VNM straight truck also offers cabover-like maneuverability.

Volvo VHD model:

The Volvo VHD model, which is also available as a tractor or straight truck, offers extreme versatility for refuse customers. The VHD chassis is suitable for a number of refuse applications, including rear or automated side loading and roll off. A variety of PTO options are available as well.

Volvo VNL model:

With its light weight, great maneuverability and plethora of options, Volvo’s VNL daycabs make exceptional refuse transfer station trucks. Additional automated manual and manual transmissions are offered, and customers can spec a variety of suspension, axle, frame and PTO options to meet their specific application needs.


Volvo Trucks North America will feature its wide range of refuse-focused truck models – including its versatile Volvo VHD model (above) – in booth no. 2267 at WasteExpo 2016, which runs June 7-9 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
