Volvo recently pulled off a truly impressive and exceptional series of truck stunts designed to launch and show off the new and updated FH16 trucks, which now come equipped with a crawler gear system.
The stunt itself involved the truck pulling a 750-ton weight whilst starting from a stationary position, an exceptional and brave demonstration of its heavy transmission and lifting ability. The stunt also sought to show off the truck's near crawler gear system, which makes it easier for trucks to handle slippery surfaces when carrying very heavy loads. This system allows trucks to haul big weight whilst maintaining speeds between 0.5 and 2 km/h.
Ultimately, this unique truck stunt showcases the Volvo FH16 truck's ability to both keep drivers safe and transport gear effectively.
