Volvo Construction Equipment R100E rigid-frame haul truck is the company’s largest, with a payload of 100 tons and heaped capacity of 79 cubic yards.

It is powered by a Cummins QST30 Tier 4-F engine that delivers 1075 horsepower at 2,100 rpm. Volvo Dynamic Shift Control automatically tailors the transmission shift-points depending on the worksite and operational inputs.

The On- Board Weighing (OBW) option ensures the machine moves the maximum safe payload to further optimize production and minimize operational costs. It does this by using exterior- mounted pressure sensors to monitor and relay machine statistics to the operator’s on- board display.

The R100E has a ROPS/FOPS-certified operator cab that is fitted onto viscous-type isolation mounts for reduced vibrations and exterior noise. From the operator seat, the operator can observe the job site and surrounding areas through the large glass area and a low rake windscreen. Good visibility is complemented by a 360-degree surround view system provided by Volvo Smart View. The system uses multiple ultra-wide angle exterior-mounted cameras to produce a bird's-eye-view of the vehicle and surrounding work area via the on-board display.

All displays and ergonomically positioned fingertip controls are within reach of the fully adjustable Volvo air suspension operator seat, easily adjusted to fit the operator’s physique.

The transmission retarder and neutral coast inhibitor secure safe machine control in downhill conditions, while the engine overspeed protection automatically slows the machine down to safe operating limits.

Anti-slip steps and secure walkways enable daily service checks and routine maintenance. All service points are grouped and located within reach from the ground and service platform.
