New Compact Wheel Loaders from Volvo

Volvo's new L45H and L50H compact wheel loaders are well-balanced, built for greater fuel efficiency and improved hydraulic flow for faster cycle times at reduced operating cost. Equipped with Volvo's Torque Parallel (TP) linkage, they deliver high breakout torque and excellent parallel movement throughout the entire lifting range.

“This is a very versatile size class that can get tough work done in confined spaces,” said John Comrie, product manager for compact wheel loaders at Volvo CE, “and with a laundry list of improvements that make the H-series more fuel efficient, more powerful and more versatile, all while making the operator more comfortable — the L45H and L50H are great choices for any application.”

The L45H and L50H feature Volvo’s intelligent load-sensing hydraulic system that drives power to the hydraulic functions according to demand for fast response, shorter cycle times and reduced fuel consumption. Heavy-duty planetary axles ensure long life; front and rear 100-percent differential locks feature a dog clutch design to improve grip and maintain traction on all terrain.

Certified ROPS/FOPS cab features ergonomically placed controls, a climate control system, all-around visibility and low internal noise levels. Ground-level service points and grouped greasing points ensure easy and quick maintenance. The oscillating rear axle is supported on maintenance-free cradles. Its bearings and bushings are lubricated for life and protected by well-proven seals, saving hours of maintenance time. Volvo CareTrack telematics provide real-time data on fuel consumption and idle times to location tracking and service reminders.

These machines can be factory-fitted with extra hydraulic lines to operate and run a variety of attachments, and the standard attachment bracket is ISO-standardized for quick and easy interchange of attachments.
