" I have bought this model right before its official release, which means that I could not play with it untill official profile was released (There was a time when you could play with your motorized set right after the build, Power Functions, remember?)
Model name, The Volvo articulated hauler, shows that it is NOT a particular model from Volvo heavy machinery line.
Adding "A60H" markings will not change that.
Whole model lacks proportions of A60H, especially the cab area, which should be much bulkier and cab itself should be lowered.
There is a photo in the instructions showing the real A60H nexy to this model. LEGO used forced perspective to make this model look more like its real counterpart.
You need to use your smartphone with that "cool" app to control this model. It takes up to 3 minutes to calibrate at first use and does not work properly with model after calibrating, especially with the steering. Sometimes it does not change the gears, even when particular gear is selected.
Central pivot point has so many slack in it, due to usage of small turntable, that whole front part of the hauler goes up and down. The servomotor used fot steering, along with linkages with pins without frinction adds even more slack to the whole mechanism. Basically whole front part with should be rebuilt to avoid the slack and improve steering lock.
Dump bed has few holes and places where small parts like 1x1 brick can be stuck.
Only thing that looks good is fake engine with its surroundings and that "your average Volvo hauler" look.
Great set for parts, good for display, poor for playing.
Sincerely, your customer. "
