In a significant development for the construction equipment industry, Volvo is rolling out upgrades for its L60F-L90F wheel loaders, ushering in the H-Series generation with Tier 3 engines. These enhancements not only maintain the machines’ renowned power and reliability but also introduce a host of additional benefits.
The H-Series wheel loaders promise increased operator comfort, lifting capacity, fuel efficiency, and reduced service costs, resulting in a smoother operator experience on virtually any job site.
As part of this series upgrade, the older L60Gz and L90Gz models will be gradually phased out by the close of 2023. The H-Series wheel loaders offer a fresh look and feel, accompanied by a suite of performance-enhancing upgrades that can be further customized with a wide range of optional equipment.
The improvements extend beyond the mechanics of the machines and directly impact the operator experience. Inside the cab, operators can look forward to a significantly more comfortable and productive work environment. Among the standout features is Rimpull Control, which empowers operators to fine-tune the wheel loaders’ rimpull to match slippery ground conditions. This helps reduce wheel spin and wear and tear, ultimately leading to improved fuel efficiency.
The H-Series introduces Smart Control, a system that optimizes the energy distribution between the hydraulic and drive train systems, delivering precisely the right amount of power where and when it’s needed.
Furthermore, these upgraded wheel loaders come equipped with an electrically opened engine hood, slide-out coolers, and quick oil change connectors. These features not only provide better access to service points but also simplify maintenance routines, making them more convenient and hassle-free.
Volvo’s commitment to fuel efficiency shines through in the H-Series. An optional lock-up torque converter enhances productivity and fuel efficiency, particularly in load and carry applications. It also contributes to reduced operator fatigue, boosting overall site productivity.
Another noteworthy fuel-saving feature is the Eco pedal. This innovation provides operators with a tactile response when they reach the optimal engine rpm range, indicating the most economical working range. Operators can choose to stay within this range for peak fuel efficiency or go beyond it when necessary.
These enhancements collectively empower operators to work smarter, not harder, while ensuring maximum uptime for improved site productivity and enhanced fuel efficiency.
Volvo recognises that every customer’s needs are unique. To further enhance uptime and performance, customers can select from a range of Volvo Services, including On-Board Weighing and Volvo Co-Pilot. These services enable the H-Series wheel loaders to operate with precision, productivity, and safety.
The upgraded wheel loaders offer extensive customization options, with a complete range of choices for attachments and features, allowing them to be tailored precisely to meet the diverse demands of customers across various industries.
