Volvo CE's versatile new loader models
Volvo Construction Equipment’s new L60H, L70H and L90H wheeled loaders come with efficient Stage IV engines and the Swedish firm’s novel Torque Parallel (TP) linkage.
These two key elements are said to allow the H-Series models to deliver outstanding fuel efficiency without compromising on performance.
The TP linkage combines the benefits of the Z-bar and parallel linkage and is said to deliver high breakout torque and excellent parallel movement throughout the entire lifting range. The operator has full control over the load for increased safety and productivity. Double seals on all linkage pins retain lubricating grease and prevent dust for outstanding durability and long machine life, and the TP linkage geometry provides excellent bucket roll-back angles for increased stability and less spillage.
For enhanced durability, the H-Series wheeled loaders are equipped with a counter shaft transmission that can endure high levels of stress, and various tailored settings can be selected by the operator to match all applications from short cycle truck loading to long-distance load and carry operations.
The L60H, L70H and L90H are also equipped with an Eco-pedal featuring a push-back mechanism that engages when engine rpm is about to exceed the most economic operating range. The operator senses the resistance and reduces pressure to continue within this range. If full engine speed is needed, the push-back mechanism can be easily overridden.
When compared to previous models, the L90H delivers increased engine power, torque and an improved hydraulic flow rate. The excellent engine output and hydraulic flow ensures harmony between the drivetrain and the hydraulic system for improved fuel efficiency. This machine is also equipped with a longer wheel-base for outstanding stability.
The L60H, L70H and L90H are built with operator comfort in mind. The Volvo CE cab boasts unparalleled all-round visibility, minimum noise and vibration levels, and effective climate control. An intelligent HMI system informs the operator of all necessary machine information for easy control, peace of mind and reduced fatigue.
These machines are designed to make routine maintenance quick and easy. The one-piece motorised engine hood opens at a wide angle, providing full access to the engine compartment and engine maintenance points, strategically grouped together for fast, easy service checks.
The Volvo L60H, L70H and L90H wheeled loaders offer more flexibility with a wide range of Volvo attachments and the TP linkage. Each attachment is said to be perfectly matched to the machine’s link-arm geometry for maximum breakout, rimpull and lifting force.
