Volvo's Automatic Traction Control, available on the A25E and A30E articulated dump trucks — controls longitudinal lock across all three axles automatically, leaving the operator free to concentrate on the work at hand. The machine's computers, along with sensors, determine which axles need to be engaged for the conditions. The system retains the exclusive dog-clutch locking system. Estimated list price: $3,000.
