The smallest in the range of vehicles from Volvo, the FL is seen as solid and dependable, two qualities which everyone would hope for when buying a truck. Initially, some trucks within the FL range operated at 7.5 tonnes GVW, although that has now changed to a far more capacious 12 tonnes GVW, increasing up to 18 tonnes.
After undergoing a total revamp in 2006, the Volvo FL range has a wide choice of cabs available, not to mention engines, gearboxes and even the amount of power you can extract from each engine. Some of the older FL models still sell pretty well, even though they can seem a little basic by comparison to the post-2006 trucks. They’re best for use as recovery and tipper vehicles.

Before 2006, the engines available with the FL series were 6-litre Volvo D6B diesels equipped with power ranging from 180bhp to 250bhp. Post-2006, the new engine was a 7-litre Volvo D7F engine with 240bhp, 260bhp or 280bhp, making it considerably more powerful to help cope with the increased payload.
Before the FE range was launched, the FL was available as a tractor unit, a 6x2 chassis unit or even as an 8x4 tipper with a whopping 10-litre engine. This model was known as the Volvo F10, which is still available if you look hard enough for a used model. They’re still surprisingly common on the roads today.
In terms of cab choice, there are three options for the newer FL trucks – a day cab, a medium cab and a crew cab. The latter is probably the best choice for recovery trucks, while a medium cab has enough capacity for a small crew. Each cab is pretty well-equipped with security and entertainment features coming as standard.
Suspension depends purely on which FL truck you decide to buy. With the FL L, you get 19.5in wheels for light distribution, while the medium-sized FL M truck has a steel suspension with 22.5in wheels, ideal for use as a skip or tipper. The Volvo FL H (Heavy) truck comes with either steel or air suspension, useful for light construction jobs.
The Volvo FL, despite being relatively small, is capable of doing various jobs, but seems to come into its own as a tipper or skip.
