750 tonne Volvo Stock strongman challenge

Magnus Samuelsson, known to tons as the 1998 World’s Strongest Man, is one of the strongest men on the planet. As a put ten-time competition finalist, in addition to multifarious other sporting achievements, he’s a force to be reckoned with.

That’s why Volvo looked to Samuelsson to aid in achieving a stunning haulage challenge, pulling 750 tonnes in a Volvo Dealings. Sitting in the cab of a Volvo FH16 alongside trucking newspaperman Brian Weatherley, the truck’s towing power was put to the assay, using its 3550 Nm of torque and 750hp to induce beyond its measured limits.

Hooked up to the equal of two Boeing 747 jumbo jets, fully brim-full with passengers and cargo, the Volvo FH16 was game to take on one of the toughest challenges in the history of Volvo Trucks – with Samuelsson at the saddle.

Using the Volvo FH16’s innovative I-Shift towing set-up with built-in intelligence, complete with crawler gears, the challenge in advance was more feasible than in any other stuff, but it still didn’t make it easy.
