Volvo L250H wheel loader makes light of heavy jobs

The new Tier 4 Final/Stage IV-compliant L250H wheel loader from Volvo Construction Equipment tackles heavy tasks with superior performance, heightened safety and up to 18% better fuel economy with OptiShift.

L250H Wheel Loader

The Volvo L250H wheel loader is a high production machine designed to deliver excellent productivity and profitability in applications including quarry, mining and heavy infrastructure. Operators will experience short cycle times, high breakout force and excellent controllability with this heavy-duty machine. Specifically in North America, the wheel loader is perfectly matched to on-highway trucks, and the L250H will load a 25-ton triaxle on-highway truck in two passes — two full buckets for one full truck.

Achieve more

With a variety of product options, Volvo customers can adapt their machine to access more applications, such as rock and waste handling. Attachments are purpose-built to work in harmony with the L250H. Functions and properties are ideally matched to parameters, such as link-arm geometry and breakout, rim pull and lifting force for maximum productivity.

Comfort increases productivity

Safety first

When working in the dark, safety and visibility are enhanced by reflectors that follow the contour of the machine. LED entrance lights illuminate the cab for safe entry and exit and additional LED work lamps light up the work area. For added safety, an optional fire suppression system, consisting of up to 16 nozzles, is automatically activated inside the engine compartment if excessive heat is detected. The system, purpose-built for Volvo wheel loaders, can also be manually activated from inside and outside the cab.

Built to last

The L250H wheel loader’s superior durability and ease of maintenance ensure maximum machine uptime and minimum expenditure on servicing replacement parts. The batteries are maintenance-free as are the rear axle cradles, which are fitted with greased-for-life bushings and bearings. Machine wear is reduced thanks to an optional, automatic lubrication system that can be adjusted according to application. Meanwhile a hydraulically-driven cooling fan protects the machine’s vital components from damage by overheating. The fan activates automatically and only when needed to limit fuel consumption and noise – and can be reversed to allow self-cleaning of the cooling units. Both the front and the rear axles feature an additional oil cooling feature, which allows the hydraulic oil to flow inside the axle, thereby cooling it.

When carrying out regular service checks, the cab can be tilted through 35° or 70° via a hydraulic pump to provide wide access to the vital components. And like all Volvo machines, the L250H wheel loader is supported by a vast global service infrastructure of technicians, workshops and dealers, providing that all-important peace of mind.
