Volvo's next generation
Volvo's F-series articulated haulers offer up to 4% improved fuel efficiency over the earlier E-Series
New products from Volvo Construction Equipment are emission-compliant as a matter of course, says the company, which will introduce next generation articulated haulers (ADTs), wheeled loaders, excavators and backhoe loaders.

From the six-strong F-Series articulated haulers (starting with the A25F with a load capacity of 24tonnes to the A40F FS with 39tonnes) will be the 28tonne capacity A30F and the A40F.

Powered by Stage IIIB compliant Volvo V-ACT six-cylinder, turbo-charged and electronically controlled diesel engines with diesel particulate filter (DPF) after treatment, the F-Series articulated haulers feature high torque at low engine speeds, resulting in up to 4% improved fuel efficiency over the earlier E-Series.

On Volvo's new G-Series range of wheeled loaders, the L150G, L180G and L220G, are also fitted with Volvo's Stage IIIB compliant 13litre, six-cylinder diesel engine producing between 220-274kW. Fuel efficiency has been improved by up to 15% over the previous F-Series loaders, and the new loaders also boast a 20% increase in lifting force and a 10% improvement in breakout force.

The new D-Series generation of Volvo's tracked excavators will be represented by the range-topping 50.5tonne EC480D, which features mechanical variable width tracks.

The new B-Series backhoe loaders from Volvo Construction Equipment represent a "thorough redesign of this utility segment specialist."

Volvo Trucks will show the FMX, designed and built for heavy construction duties, while Volvo Penta's industrial engines will also be on show.
