Meet The VHD Family

The VHD 300 axle back configuration is ideal when applications require an extremely tight turning radius and is available with the revolutionary Volvo Dynamic Steering (VDS). The axle back model can be spec'd with any frame length option available in the VHD family, including 6x4 tandem, 8x4 tandem, or 8x6 tri-drive.

The VHD 300 axle forward configuration is ideal when applications require bridge-law compliant wheelbases. Its easily customizable chassis and nine available PTO options are representative of the entire VHD line. Like all VHD configurations the 300F meets requirements for both straight-truck and tractor applications.

The VHD 400 axle back sleeper configuration provides the industry’s tightest turning radius, with a wheel cut up to 50 degrees, for maximum maneuverability. The 400B also is available with Volvo Dynamic Steering to compensate for the steering jolts commonly associated with off highway operations.

VHD 400 axle forward sleeper. Regional transport for operations like construction or timber harvesting can require overnights. Our VHD 400F flat-roof sleeper offers maximum flexibility for those runs, especially in bridge-law compliant applications. The 42" sleeper features a premium mattress that’s 75" x 36", so drivers can be rested and ready.


Everywhere you look on the VHD, you’ll find rugged construction and improvements that will help you tackle your most demanding tasks. From tow hook to tail light, this truck is made to work.

Tougher Made Smarter

For decades conventional wisdom said vocational truck drivers and owners only cared about dependability. Considerations like safety, efficiency, comfort, and body design couldn’t be part of the decision when choosing a dump truck or mixer. Volvo Trucks’ engineering team decided to ignore conventional wisdom when they began work on the new Volvo VHD series. They set out to build a vocational truck that has it all.

John Felder, Product Marketing Manager, talks about the new VHD.

Why did Volvo Trucks decide to upgrade the VHD?

We wanted to change the picture a little bit with the new VHD. It’s always been wonderfully competent truck. And it has evolved over the years, but 97% of market hasn’t had exposure to this truck. We wanted to tie it to the rest of the Volvo Trucks family visually and give this latest edition of the VHD a big introduction.
