Adaptive Loading, a 6x2 tractor configuration whose liftable forward axle automatically adjusts to load weight changes and 4x2 operation, can lower fuel consumption 3-5 percent and tire wear 20 percent in cement and other bulk material hauling. Volvo Trucks premiered the technology at the Mid-America Trucking Show, March 26-28 in Louisville.
