Command and control with middle weight Volvo wheel loaders
The new L60G, L70G and L90G are the latest wheel loaders from Volvo Construction Equipment in the 13 to 17 tons (12 to 15 tonne) class. With its industry leading versatility, the Torque Parallel linkage combines power with precision.
The latest additions to the G-Series wheel loaders from Volvo Construction Equipment are the versatile L60G, L70G, and L90G midsized machines. Not only does the loader arms’ patented TP linkage offer superior breakout and lifting forces, they also remain perfectly parallel throughout the lifting range — ensuring exceptional load stability. This combination of power throughout the lift cycle, parallel movement and long reach makes the L60G, L70G and L90G ideal in material handling jobs and where fast work cycles are needed. Suitable for a wide range of other applications, these jobsite workhorses can change tools in a matter of moments, thanks to the Volvo hydraulic attachment bracket.
The L60G, L70G and L90G all enjoy the modern stylistic overhaul of the rest of the G-Series range. This includes a new electrically operated sloping engine hood design that improves rear visibility and, when opened, provides wide access to the engine compartment, making servicing and repairs easier.
Higher torque with lower emissions
These new machines meet the requirements of the Tier 4i emissions legislation that came into force on January 1, 2012. The L60G, L70G, and L90G are all fitted with a Volvo 6-liter, 6-cylinder turbocharged V-ACT (Volvo Advanced Combustion Technology) off-highway diesel engine, which features cooled gas recirculation and a particulate filter with active regeneration. The diesel particulate filter (DPF) temporarily holds the particulate matter and then incinerates it, further reducing emissions. This process is conducted without any loss of performance or operation. Producing between 161 and 173 hp (120 and 129 kW), depending on the model, these three units provide high torque at low engine speeds.
