Volvo Trucks now is offering its VNX 630 model with a tridem rear axle group to maximize traction and payload.

With three rear drive axles instead of two, the VNX 630 tridem is customized to meet the demands of heavy-haul applications, such as heavy-equipment hauling, oil and gas delivery and timber transportation.

With its 8x6 configuration, the vehicle can manage up to a 69,000-pound rear axle load and has extra traction that enables it to traverse off-road conditions including steep terrain, mud and ice, Volvo said.

“Power and performance are two benefits our heavy-haul customers demand,” said Göran Nyberg, president of Volvo Trucks North America. “The VNX tridem meets these needs, offering a solution to ensure the easier transportation of heavy-haul loads.”

The VNX, powered by the Volvo D16 engine, comes standard with Volvo’s I-Shift automated manual transmission.
