Volvo, diesel stuff is their cornerstone. No contest


what specific Volvo drive are you referring to? There is no Bravo thats gonna take 750lbs of torque.

Volvo has a high speed drive, the DPR, that has built in hydraulic steering and is built specifically for high torque diesel applications. It is a much stronger drive than a Bravo.

What are you worried about with the MSA? With a servicing dealer as close as the UK, it shouldnt be an issue
