Volvo Mid-Size Loader Updates Deliver Improved Fuel Efficiency, Productivity

Volvo Construction Equipment has expanded its H-Series 2.0 updates to the L60H and L70H wheel loaders.

“With the L60H and L70H joining the previously announced L90H 2.0, we have completed the H-Series update for our mid-size wheel loaders,” said Chris Connolly, product manager, wheel loaders, Volvo Construction Equipment. “Now, operators can enjoy the latest innovations on all three machines, helping them to work more efficiently and productively.”

The mid-size wheel loaders now boast up to 25-percent greater fuel efficiency than their predecessor models. Among the fuel-saving features are:

  • Lock-up torque converter (L70H-L90H option): Lowers rpm and increases speed, resulting in faster cycles times and improved fuel efficiency.
  • Smart Control: Ensures the correct torque in all situations, improving engine and hydraulic harmony, and helping to shorten cycle times and conserve fuel.
  • Smooth Control: Helps operators maintain a steady throttle position on uneven ground, resulting in a more even engine speed and smoother ride, while saving fuel.
  • Rim Pull Control: Reduces wheel spin and slippage, thereby saving fuel, reducing tire wear and improving productivity, while lowering total cost of ownership.

Other key features on the H-Series 2.0 wheel loaders include increased tipping load – by 1.7 percent for the L60H, 1.6 percent for the L70H and 3.4% percent for the L90H – and a slide-able cooler that provides easier access to remove dirt and debris.
A new, optimized loader arm design results in increased payload, and the 50-percent larger cooling area improves the cooling capacity and lowers the hydraulic oil temperature.

Electro-servo hydraulic controls available on L70H and L90H offer adjustable sensitivity, allowing operators to shift quickly between linear and single-lever controls.

In addition, improved serviceability comes from redesigned engine and transmission oil fill points for cleaner, faster adding of fluids. A delayed engine shutdown option reduces engine wear by avoiding hot turbo shutdowns.
