Used Volvo FH Tractor Untis for Sale

2.5 Average

The Volvo FH range of tractor units is designed for high-volume long-haul transport. And with a long era of successful international operation under its belt, buying a used FH is not just possible but also a positively sensible idea. Large cabs on this type of truck are a given, but you also get a range of creature comforts, efficient engines and plenty of axle configurations so that an FH tractor unit can be a practical and proficient transcontinental companion.

Volvo’s various technological advances for the FH range are able to make it a worthy competitor for some of the other popular tractor units from rival manufacturers. And one recent development is the Dynamic Steering system, which makes the truck easier to manoeuvre by predicting what the driver will require of it and using an electric motor to boost torque while keeping the feel behind the steering wheel the same. So rather than having to fight with the tractor unit when it is hauling a heavy load, the driver will feel just as in control as when the trailer is empty.

Auto and manual FH tractor units are available, with newer models benefiting from I-Shift technology which completely takes the clutch pedal out of the equation and enables efficient gear changes whatever the situation. This applies to uphill movement as well as making steady progress on motorways, with this system alone helping to shave two per cent off fuel costs compared to units that lack I-Shift abilities.

Many FH tractor units feature high-roof cabs so that there is extra headroom for the driver and also an abundance of compartments in which gear of all kinds can be stored when not in use. A driver should be able to stand without having to crouch within the cab, which can make a real difference when it comes to how spacious it feels. Bigger cabs also allow more room for seating to be manoeuvred and configured to fit the body shape of individual drivers, which is something that not every manufacturer can offer but Volvo delivers.

Volvo FH tractor units can come with axle configurations starting at 4x2 and going up to 8x4 on the more specialist models that are available. Most buyers will opt for the 40- to 44-tonne units that can accommodate the majority of workloads with ease. And modern efficient Euro 5 and Euro 6 engines find a home within the imposing framework of the more recent FH releases. Power levels start at around 420hp, with the biggest units offering 750hp to drivers. Electronically managed fuel injection means that the precise amount of fuel required to push the truck forwards is added at any one time, reducing consumption whether the FH tractor unit is cruising on the motorway or manoeuvring in the city. These Globetrotter vehicles really live up to their name, and if a second-hand Volvo FH tractor unit is something you would like to procure, finding a well-maintained and reliable model should not be difficult in today's market.
