Volvo Rolls Out D-Series Skid Steers, Compact Track Loaders

Volvo’s revamped D-Series offers new skid steer loaders (MC110D, MC115D and MC135D) and compact track loaders (MCT110D, MCT125D and MCT135D) with more strength, greater capacities, and improved safety and operator comfort.

Equipped with the next-generation, curved single loader arm, the D-Series is built with 20 percent more steel than conventional models. The heavy-duty design and extra reinforcement provide more strength and rigidity, while efficiently distributing the load. This reduces material loss from the bucket and limits sway in heavy pallet handling applications.

A stronger boom design, backed by Volvo’s lifetime guarantee, increases lifting capacities up to 11 percent over the preceding (C-Series) models.

The redesigned D-Series features a fully enclosed attachment bracket that eliminates the need for greasing, as well as a replaceable, reversible wear plate. Also, a new, visual indicator lets the operator know when the attachment is locked.

A bigger, safer and more comfortable cab offers 30-percent more room and up to 60-percent greater visibility than conventional skid steers and compact track loaders.

The wider side-entry door and new handrails allow operators to enter more safely, without stepping over an attachment, and a new cab air vent makes it easier to close the cab door. Inside, the noise-insulated cab is fitted with an adjustable seat, generous legroom and storage, an advanced climate-control system, and easy-to-read gauges located in the two ergonomic consoles.

Due to the forward-tilting cab, one person can access the internal components, without the need to raise the arm. For added convenience, all service and maintenance points are arranged in a simple layout, and are also accessible via the large rear door.
“From the improved boom design to the larger platform, entrance and cab, the D-Series is the culmination of customer feedback, significant research and development, and a great deal of field testing. The end result is an impressive line-up that is among the most productive, durable and safe in the industry,” said Kevin Scotese, product manager, Volvo Construction Equipment.
