Wheel loaders: Volvo CE

September 2009 Vol. 64 No. 9

Volvo L180F has the power of a fuel-efficient Volvo V-ACT D12-engine and is Tier 3/Stage IIIA approved for greater low-end torque.

Volvo’s patented lift arm system TP-linkage gives optimal breakout torque and outstanding parallel movement throughout the entire lifting range. A fuel-saving Automatic Power Shift (APS) selects the right gear for the job and current operating conditions.

Volvo’s wheel loaders feature an intelligent load-sensing hydraulic system, providing exact distribution of power when and where it’s needed, regardless of engine rpm. The long wheel base enables Volvo’s wheel loaders to ride smoothly and comfortably on rough ground. An optional Boom Suspension System (BSS) increases productivity by up to 20 percent. 828.650.2000, www.volvo.com
