Inside Volvo VHD Dump Trucks

Vocational model uses the same cab from the VN series

Volvo's VHD vocational model uses the same basic and roomy cab from the VN series, along with comfort and safety advantages that Volvos are famous for. Inside, they teem with electronic safety and communications equipment to make drivers’ and managers’ days more efficient. They are also extra tough for the rigors of off-road running.

Our featured trucks possessed modern, edgy styling—especially along the fenders—and squinty housings for the LED headlamps.

Volvo VHD-300 daycab dump trucks include axle-forward (left) and axle-back 6x4 versions. Twin-steer, 8x4, 8x6 tri-drive, and tractor configurations are also available. Edgy styling was part of a 2019 redesign, but the large steel cab from highway models dates to VHD’s introduction in the mid-1990s.
