Volvo Construction Equipment says its new G-Series L60G, L70G, and L90G middle-weight wheel loaders feature loader arms with patented Torque Parallel linkage for superior breakout and lifting forces. The machines meet Tier 4 Interim emissions requirements and are fitted with a six-liter, six-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 loaders produce between 161 and 173 horsepower and provide high torque at low engine speeds. The L90G is said to feature a 23-percent increase in lifting force and 19-percent improvement in breakout force. In the cab, controls are mounted in an adjustable console, and pilot-operated hydraulics enable attachments to be easily controlled. The company says the machines come with advanced electronic monitoring diagnostics designed to prolong machine life, enhance uptime, and maximize productivity.
