Volvo updates its L90H wheel loader

Volvo’s updated L90H wheel loader features a slidable cooler that provides easier access to remove dirt and debris.

Volvo Construction Equipment unveiled its latest innovation in mid-sized wheel loaders with the debut of the updated L90H wheel loader.

The H-Series 2.0 machine offers improved fuel efficiency, productivity, serviceability and ease of use over its predecessor, the company says.

“The L90H wheel loader features updates to its transmission and torque converter that shorten cycle times and provide up to 20 percent greater fuel efficiency,” says Chris Connolly, product manager of wheel loaders at Volvo Construction Equipment. “It also has a higher tipping load and dump height.”

Among the new features are a delayed engine shutdown that reduces engine wear by avoiding hot turbo shutdowns. Electro-servo hydraulic controls feature adjustable sensitivity and allow operators to shift quickly between linear and single-lever controls. In addition, a new loader arm design is optimized to result in increased payload.

Other features include a slidable cooler that provides easier access to remove dirt and debris; rim pull control that reduces wheel spin and slippage, thereby saving fuel, reducing tire wear and improving productivity; and a dump height that is 3 in. higher than the prior generation.

The L90H, as well as updated L60H and L70H models, will be available in late summer 2018. All new features may not be available on all models, Volvo CE says, and all new features may not be available at the same time for any given model.

In February, Volvo launched H-Series 2.0 updates on three larger models of wheel loaders: the L150H, L180H and L220H.
