Volvo expands the C-Series skid steer loader model range with the addition of several new models

Volvo Construction Equipment introduces additions to its C-Series skid steer loader and compact track loader line to customers in North America.

The new wheeled and tracked models available through the Volvo Construction Equipment dealer network are the radial lift MC60C and MC70C, and the vertical lift MC85C, MC95C and MCT85C. 

Rated operating capacities for these models range from 1,350 pounds (610 kg) to 1,900 pounds (860 kg) and gross engine power from 48 hp (36 kW) to 59 hp (45 kW).

Featuring a unique single loader arm design, Volvo skid steer loaders and compact track loaders deliver customers the superior loading performance and durability found in a traditional skid steer design, along with the improved visibility, safety and enhanced cab access of a side-entry machine. 

The robust design and reinforcement of a single loader arm provides reliability and effectively distributes the load. Without the horizontal cross member found on two-arm vertical lift machines, operators experience excellent all-around, class-leading visibility. The cab also features a large top window for improved visibility during truck loading.

Excellent lifting characteristics make the Volvo C-Series ideal for truck loading and a wide range of material handling applications. Each model features good dump height and reach, along with powerful lift capacity — making Volvo skid steer loaders and compact track loaders highly efficient in repeated load and carry operations. Powerful engines deliver proven power and dependability.

Safer side access

Due to the single loader tower arm design, cab access is easier and safer than traditional skid steer loaders. Operators enter and exit the cab through a large, wide-opening side cab door. This eliminates the need for operators to climb onto and over the bucket or attachment, which can be muddy or slippery. Side entry also eliminates the uncomfortable body turn required of operators in order to sit down in traditional skid steer loader cab designs.

Inside the Volvo cab, the operator’s environment has been redesigned with increased space, comfort, and ease-of-use in mind. The Volvo cab meets ROPS / FOPS standards for safety and operator peace of mind. All controls and gauges are ergonomically placed to provide ease-of-use and comfort for prolonged productivity.

The left-hand machine control pod easily hinges rearward with the assistance of a single gas strut, allowing for easy machine entry and exit. The right control pod features a wrap-around seat bar designed to comfortably fit operators of all sizes, and acts as a rest for the operator’s right arm. Both armrests on top of the control pods are well cushioned, and the left hand control tilts open to reveal ample storage space. A 12V power outlet is also located inside.

Easier service, longer life

Another feature of the Volvo C-Series is service access through a forward-tilting cab and large rear compartment service door. All service and maintenance points are accessible through simple, safe means. In addition, the side entry and exit of the cab makes it possible for the operator to engage the loader arm support without the aid of a second person. Because of the side door, the operator can stop the machine, safely exit the machine without walking under the attachment, and then walk around the rear of the machine to safely engage the support. A best-in-class fuel tank capacity allows operators to spend less downtime refuelling the machine, delivering longer operating shifts for more productivity.
