Volvo Construction Equipment unveiled its brand new L250G wheel loader at ConExpo-Con/Agg. The company says it is the first wheel loader specifically designed to fill triaxle, on-highway trucks in only two passes, which means up to 30 percent more trucks can be loaded per day. The machine is powered by a Tier 4i-certified engine with OptiShift transmission for enhanced fuel savings. Additional features include an adjustable declutch, electro-hydraulic controls, oil and fuel filters in one location for easy maintenance and less downtime, and a reverse camera. CareTrack is provided as standard equipment and is free for three years.
