The new Volvo L60H, L70H and L90H wheel loaders are versatile machines equipped with an industry-leading cab and an efficient engine for increased productivity and reduced fuel consumption in a variety of applications.
“Each machine features a robust powertrain, designed and built by Volvo. Thanks to years of development, this Volvo Powertrain offers unrivaled durability and longer component life,” explains Eric Yeomans, North American product manager for the L60H, L70H and L90H wheel loaders.
Equipped with Volvo 6-liter diesel Tier 4 Final/Stage IV engines, these wheel loaders deliver high torque at low engine rpm for industry-leading performance and fuel efficiency.
The Volvo L60H, L70H and L90H are built with unique Torque Parallel (TP) linkage for the best versatility and front visibility. The TP linkage combines the benefits of Z-bar and parallel linkage to deliver high breakout torque and excellent parallel movement throughout the entire lifting range. The operator has full control over the load for increased safety and productivity. Double seals on all linkage pins retain lubricating grease and prevent dust for outstanding durability and long machine life, and the TP linkage geometry provides excellent bucket roll-back angles for increased stability and less spillage.
A durable performance
For enhanced durability, these machines are equipped with a counter shaft transmission that can endure high levels of stress, and various tailored settings can be selected by the operator to match all applications from short cycle truck loading to long distance load and carry operations.
For more versatility in all applications, these machines are equipped with a 100 percent differential lock on the front axle, which provides outstanding traction and rimpull on soft and slippery ground, minimizing wheel spin and tire wear.
When it comes to warranty, Volvo leads the way with a standard warranty of 1 year/2,500 machine hours and the industry unique Lifetime Frame Warranty that includes the front frame, rear frame, articulation joint, and the loader arm.
Efficiency as standard
These wheel loaders are equipped with the latest technology dedicated to reducing fuel consumption and engine emissions. The Volvo L60H, L70H and L90H are equipped with an eco pedal featuring a push-back mechanism that engages when engine rpm is about to exceed the most economic operating range. The operator senses the resistance and reduces pressure to continue within this range. If full engine speed is needed, the push-back mechanism can be easily overridden.
Designed to deliver an outstanding performance every time, these wheel loaders feature load-sensing hydraulics that perfectly match power to the application, increasing fuel efficiency and precision. This system makes power available for rimpull, providing easier penetration for increased productivity. With help from variable displacement piston pumps and precision control levers, hydraulic power is delivered according to demand.
When compared to previous models, the Volvo L90H delivers increased engine power, torque and an improved hydraulic flow rate. The excellent engine output and hydraulic flow ensures harmony between the drivetrain and the hydraulic system for improved fuel efficiency. This machine is also equipped with a longer wheel base for outstanding stability.
Comfortable control and easy service
The Volvo L60H, L70H and L90H are built with operator comfort in mind. The industry-leading Volvo cab boasts unparalleled all-round visibility, minimum noise and vibration levels, and effective climate control. An intelligent Human Machine Interface (HMI) system informs the operator of all necessary machine information for easy control, peace of mind and reduced fatigue.
Standard Automatic Heat Control (AHC) and air conditioning ensure a comfortable environment inside the cab, and the Volvo industry-leading air filtration system allows 90 percent of the cab air to be recirculated through the main filter for continuous dust removal and a cleaner environment.
These machines are designed to make routine maintenance quick and easy. Daily service checks on the machine can be carried out quickly and simply with grouped service points. The engine hood opens electronically so the operator or technician can easily gain full access to the engine compartment. This helps the machine to get back on the job as quickly as possible. A number of components require very little maintenance. The rear axle cradles contain maintenance-free lubricated-for-life bushings and bearings. As for the cooling fan, it can be reversed for self-cleaning of the cooling units.
Through the Volvo CareTrack® telematics monitoring system, fleet managers are given real-time visibility into vital machine information that affects the operation’s bottom line. Everything from fuel consumption and idle times to location tracking and service reminders can be monitored to help reduce total cost of ownership and increase profitability throughout the entire life of the machine.
The Volvo L60H, L70H and L90H wheel loaders offer more flexibility with a wide range of Volvo attachments and the TP linkage. Each attachment is perfectly matched to the machine’s link-arm geometry for maximum breakout, rimpull and lifting force.
These models can be fitted with the improved Volvo general purpose bucket, designed for high productivity in a variety of materials, or a robust Volvo light material bucket for efficient handling of low density materials.
The material handling arm further extends the machines’ versatility and the option of the Volvo pallet fork frame with pallet fork tines allows the machine to handle, load and move pallets of building material, drainage pipe, lumber or loose items around the uneven terrain of a construction site.
