Volvo A40G Articulated Hauler

Volvo A40G Articulated Hauler

Time for another light painting of yet another cool piece of heavy construction equipment! This time it’s a Volvo A40G Articulated Hauler! This thing is so cool looking! I found it near our daughter’s neighborhood, just asking to be light painted. So I did!

Here’s the setup photo a the Volvo A40G Articulated Hauler before I light painted it.

A Quick Word About This Dump Truck

Here’s what I could come up with about this cool piece of construction equipment. The Volvo A40G Articulated Hauler is a 30.7-ton machine with a Volvo engine that powers this model with up to 350kW or 469 horsepower. This particular Volvo articulated dump truck belongs among the biggest machine segment in the articulated category. The model’s dimensions are 9.559m x 3.433m x 3.597m. Nope, not your ordinary dump truck!

What a Cool Looking Rig!

This bad boy was, as I mentioned, just asking to be light painted. At the time, I didn’t have anything like this in my heavy construction equipment list, so I really wanted to create this one. Growing up, I remember seeing trucks like this and thinking that they were pretty awesome! Little did I know, that years later I’d have the chance to take a look at one, and photograph it, up close!

I took the liberty of removing the homes in the background by placing big dirt piles in front of them. Yes, I have light painted dirt piles for this very purpose! The sky was pretty boring that night, so I added a sky that really compliments this cool dump truck perfectly!

Add Your Child to this Photograph!

If you have a kid that would love to be photographed next to a rig like this, I can take care of that for you! Through the wonders of greenscreen, I can add your construction-loving child to this light painted dump truck photograph, or a number of other pieces of heavy equipment, all from the safety of our studio! Just give us a call to make it happen for your kid!

Here’s a link to view a number of other heavy construction equipment on the light painting website:
