Volvo Trucks North America plans to lay off 300 workers at its New River Valley Plant in Dublin, Va., in September.
The Swedish truck company blamed sagging sales in the heavy-duty truck market for the cutback. It follows a layoff of 500 employees at the Virginia factory in February.
“It’s by now very clear that the industry is managing through a period of excess inventory and reduced demand,” John Mies, Volvo’s U.S. spokesman, said Tuesday. “And we’re seeing that softening particularly in the long-haul segment, which is core for Volvo.”
A long line of Bulldogs hit the road from the Mack Truck Customer Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania in October of 2012. The parade begins with oldest Macks and progresses to the newest, and includes a few other brands as well.

Greased wheel ends can provide many thousands of miles of reliable service, provided proper maintenance procedures are followed.
First, check for the symptoms that indicate a wheel end needs service:
-A hot to the touch hubcap – take precautions to avoid burns – is one sign, as is site glass (oil) on a hubcap that is discolored or burnt.
-Low lubrication levels and wetness around either the hubcap gasket area or wheel seal are problematic, while vibration or wobble indicates a serious condition that requires immediate service.
-A grinding noise, a burning smell, smoke or abnormal side pull while braking also means something’s not right.
-Any vehicle being put into service after long storage faces the possibility that its seals may have dried out or become contaminated.
-Any time a wheel end has been submerged in floodwater, it must be inspected. As the water could be toxic, wear safety equipment.
-Lift and support each axle. Rotate the wheel, checking for vibration. If the rotation is not smooth or if a vibration is detected, inspect the bearings.
-Check the bearing endplay with a dial indicator. If endplay is out of the recommended .001” to .005” range, inspect the bearings for wear and damage.
-Pull the outer bearing and inspect the lubricant level, as both over- and under-fill conditions shorten wheel end life. Semi-fluid grease should be at the 3:00/9:00 fill level, while hard grease should be present between all rollers and filled in the hub cavity to the bearing races.
-Inspect the grease. If it is milky white or foamy, the grease has been contaminated with moisture. Remove all lubricant out of the hub and clean and inspect the bearings for damage. If grit or hard particles are present, grease has been contaminated with external dirt, rust, grit or metal debris from failed wheel end components. Use a magnet to determine if the debris is metallic; if so, inspect bearings and other internal metal components.
