Volvo H-Series 2.0
The H-Series 2.0 Update is available on Volvo Construction Equipment’s L150H, L180H, L220H, and the recently launched L260H wheel loaders.

Volvo Construction Equipment’s H-Series wheel loaders incorporate the latest technology, including the next-generation OptiShift and new load-sensing hydraulics and transmission. The updates result in faster cycle times and improved fuel efficiency. The new OptiShift technology allows operators to customize the lock-up engagement of their machines and integrates the patented Reverse-By-Braking function and the new torque converter with lockup. The new transmission works with the engine and axles to improve stability and efficiency, while the new converter delivers increased torque output for better performance at low speeds. Steps between gears have been reduced for faster acceleration and smooth operation. The H-Series 2.0 update, combined with the engine, attachment organization, and dry P-brake, results in up to 20-percent greater fuel efficiency. It is available on the L150H, L180H, L220H, and L260H.
