Three New Wheel Loaders from Volvo

The new L150H, L180H and L220H wheel loaders from Volvo Construction Equipment are suitable for a wide range of applications — from rehandling, slag handling, timber handling and block handling to recycling, tunneling and extraction.

volvoThese versatile wheel loaders are fitted with a choice of specialized Volvo attachments — including forks and grapples, as well as rock and general purpose buckets — to achieve optimum uptime and profitability from each machine. The attachments are planned as an integral part of the wheel loader with functions and properties ideally matched to minimize energy losses and increase productivity. For example, the optimized shape of the Volvo rehandling bucket — featuring a spill guard, side cutters and fewer edges to trap material — facilitates faster and more effective bucket fill. This leads to a 10 percent improvement in fuel efficiency.

The H-Series wheel loaders have been designed for operator comfort, featuring a quieter cab, new air filter design to ensure a cleaner cab environment with effective continuous dust removal. All of the controls and information panels have been ergonomically positioned to limit operator fatigue, while the optional multi-function joystick gives the operator simultaneous and precise control of the hydraulic functions. The machine’s vital information — such as fuel and oil levels — is displayed on an easy-to-read screen that is clearly visible from the operator seat even in bright sunlight. Basic configurations and tests can be performed without the operator having to move from the seat.

 Featuring Tier 4 Final engine technology, the wheel loaders meet strict emissions legislation while delivering high performance and low fuel consumption. The fuel efficiency of the machine’s D13J engine is  enhanced by the  Volvo powertrain and intelligent hydraulics which supply power only on demand. The load-sensing hydraulics ensure fast response for outstanding control over the load, as well as shorter cycle times.
