An outstanding operator experience is assured thanks to a number of enhancements to the Tier 3 L60, L70 and L90 wheel loaders by Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) – providing increased comfort, productivity and fuel savings for customers in the Middle East and Africa.

The Volvo L60F-L90F wheel loaders are being upgraded to the H-Series generation with Tier 3 engines this year, ensuring customers get the same powerful and reliable operation as before but with a number of additional benefits. The new models ensure increased operator comfort, lifting capacity and fuel efficiency, all the while reducing service costs and wear and tear, resulting in a smooth operator experience on almost any jobsite.

With this series upgrade, the Volvo L60Gz and L90Gz models will be phased out by the end of 2023.

The H-Series wheel loaders boast a brand-new look and feel, as well as a number of performance-enhancing upgrades, that can be boosted further when paired with a wide range of optional equipment.

Enhanced operator experience

Some of the most noticeable improvements are as much to do with the machine itself as they are to do with the experience of operating it.

Those lucky enough to step inside the cab are set to enjoy a much more comfortable and productive work environment thanks to new features such as Rimpull Control, which allows operators to adjust the wheel loaders’ rimpull to match slippery ground conditions, thereby reducing wheel spin and wear and tear, additionally resulting in better fuel efficiency.

The H-Series’ Smart Control also balances the energy flow between the hydraulic and the drive train systems, providing just the right amount of power for exactly where and when it is needed.

In addition, the upgraded wheel loaders come with an electrically opened engine hood, slide-out coolers and quick oil change connectors, not only providing better access to service points but also making maintenance routines simple and hassle-free.

Superior fuel savings

Meanwhile, a new optional lock-up torque converter helps to increase productivity and fuel efficiency in load and carry applications, while also resulting in reduced fatigue for operators and greater site productivity.

Another fuel saving feature is the Eco pedal. When pressing down on the gas pedal, operators will sense a light pushback indicating that they are at the top limit of the economic working range for the engine rpm. Operators then have a choice to stay in this range – and therefore operate in the most economical way – or push beyond this limit if ever required.

All of these new functions allow operators to work smarter, not harder, all the while ensuring the maximum uptime for site productivity and greater fuel efficiency.

Tailored to meet customer demands

Any customers looking for further uptime, can choose from a range of Volvo Services such as On-Board Weighing and Volvo Co-Pilot that allow the H-Series to perform in the most accurate, productive and safe way possible.

The upgraded wheel loaders can be fitted exactly to customers’ varying needs thanks to a complete range of options and attachment coverage.
