Volvo Launches Haul Assist with On-Board Weighing in North America to Optimize Hauler Loads

Haul Assist, powered by the Volvo Co-Pilot display, provides real-time load information so operators hit their targets every time.

Volvo Construction Equipment continues to add to its portfolio of productivity services with the North American launch of Haul Assist, a system that shows how much material an articulated hauler has moved, providing operators data and real-time insights to help achieve optimal payloads and improve productivity. Haul Assist comes standard on Volvo’s A35G through A60H haulers and is optional on the A25G and A30G models.

“Accuracy of a hauler’s load is critical,” said Robert Palermo, product manager, articulated haulers, at Volvo Construction Equipment. “If it’s underloaded, operations are losing money on extra trips, fuel consumption and more. Overloaded trucks present safety issues, number one, but also put unnecessary wear on the truck. The more accurate the load, the lower cost per ton operations can realize.”

The value of real-time, On-Board Weighing
Haul Assist is fully integrated with Volvo’s On-Board Weighing system, which measures payload and was developed to increase the efficiency of hauling operations by helping ensure every Volvo hauler moves the optimal payload. It offers superb accuracy, eliminating underloading for peak productivity and overloading for reduced fuel consumption and wear. Operators are able to monitor all relevant information through the easy-to-use, in-cab Volvo Co-Pilot (10-inch) touch screen.

The On-Board Weighing feature in Haul Assist provides the operator with multiple tools to monitor production and productivity of the machine. The feature can be used in either Project mode or Trip Meter mode:

  • Project mode allows the operator to set up projects, add dump zones and material types, and provide targets. This makes it easier for the operator to monitor production and report progress to the office.
  • Trip Meter mode provides the operator with a payload counter (which can be reset), a cycle counter, plus other valuable payload information.

In-cab productivity dashboard 
A productivity view gives the operator an overview of the current machine productivity status — including tons per hour, tons per gallon or liter, carry-back and payload utilization — all of which can be monitored at any time. The operator can decide which data to display on the screen, depending on what’s considered most relevant. For each item, a target can be added so the operator can monitor the progress in relation to expectations.

Simple and easy-to-read reports for enhanced productivity
Haul Assist data is easily sent to the office via a productivity report, allowing for quicker decisions based on the latest information. The report provides productivity and efficiency information about the machine for a given time period, or it can generate a report that specifies — by cycle — information for a given time period. Operations can schedule reports to be generated automatically at set intervals or create them manually at any time. The data can be stored in the cloud and accessed remotely, or it can be exported using a USB for complete hauling management.
