Contact Information


Serious off-highway capability and premium on-highway features are combined in our versatile vocational performer, the VHD. Equipped with the Volvo integrated drivetrain, the VHD has the brawn required for vocational hauling and the brains to minimize operating costs.

Whether you need tight maneuverability for straight-truck applications like concrete pumpers and mixers or a bridge-law compliant wheelbase for an end-dump tractor, the VHD offers the versatility to meet your needs with available axle-forward and axle-back configurations.

Rugged front and rear axles provide extra durability for tough vocational applications. Inside, a long list of standard and optional amenities bring premium comfort to the VHD daycab and sleeper models.

The toughest truck for the toughest jobs
For tight jobsites that demand maximum maneuverability, VHD 300 Axle Back straight-trucks and tractors are up for the task. If you need a bridge-law compliant wheelbase, the VHD 300 Axle Forward has you covered. With an easily customizable chassis, up to nine power take-off options, and a factory installed piston or gear pump, the VHD 300 is simple to tailor to your specific needs.

When carrying heavy loads in rugged terrain and crowded construction sites you need a vocational truck that’s up for the job – one that’s built to last. This is where the VHD 300 helps you deliver, day after day. It’s a reliable partner that gets the job done quickly and efficiently.

42" Flat-Roof Sleeper
"The VHD 400 is ideal for heavy or customized vocational hauling, when making your delivery on-time sometimes means spending the night on the road. The comfortable 42” sleeper means you can tackle those longer routes without losing precious time."

1450-1850 lb-ft torque
325-500 horsepower
Volvo’s D11 and D13 engines deliver the horsepower and torque that tough vocational applications require. And, they're more efficient than ever thanks to a standard common rail fuel injection system gets the most power out of every drop of fuel.

Brains and Brawn
Volvo I-Shift
Every VHD comes standard with the Volvo I-Shift for Severe Duty transmission, built for rugged jobs. When steep-grade startability and low-speed maneuverability are critical, the I-Shift with Crawler Gears is the answer for maximum GCW loads.

Efficiency Runs in the Family
Volvo's family of engines is built on a foundation of proven, developed architecture that leverages innovative hardware to maximize efficiency.
