Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) unveiled its L350H wheel loader at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2017. The largest in the Volvo CE loader range, it comes with new powertrain, new hydraulics, new operator environment and a new design.

Engineered for efficiency, the L350H is fitted with next-generation hydraulics and powered by a Tier 4 Final D16J engine, for high torque at low rpm. The ideal partner for quarry production, says the company, the L350H now comes with a higher capacity 9.5 cu. yd. rock bucket, for maximum performance.

The new load sensing hydraulic system works in greater harmony with the drivetrain, increasing response times (and lifting and lowering speed of the newly designed buckets) resulting in up to 5 percent faster cycle times. The hydraulic system and drivetrain improvements, coupled with the latest Volvo engine technology, make the L350H up to 10 percent more fuel efficient in comparison to the L350F it replaces.

To boost the machine’s performance and reliability, the loader has increased clearance between the rear fenders and tires, allowing greater access when fitting tire chains, thereby reducing the risk of damage to the body of the machine.
