The H-series wheel loaders from Volvo Construction Equipment are powerful assets on every jobsite and in every application. Equipped with Volvo’s unique Torque Parallel (TP) linkage, these machines are built to deliver high breakout torque and excellent parallel movement throughout the entire lifting range. With a new Volvo D4J Tier 4 Final engine — both the L45H and L50H boast a 15 percent improvement in fuel efficiency vs. previous models. The L50H also has an impressive 20 percent improvement in hydraulic pump capacity, leading to 26 percent faster cycle times as compared to previous models.
“This is a very versatile size class that can get tough work done in confined spaces,” said John Comrie, Product Manager for compact wheel loaders at Volvo CE, “and with a laundry list of improvements that make the H-series more fuel efficient, more powerful and more versatile, all while making the operator more comfortable — the L45H and L50H are great choices for any application.”
The L45H and L50H feature Volvo’s intelligent load-sensing hydraulic system that drives power to the hydraulic functions according to demand for fast response, shorter cycle times and reduced fuel consumption. An optional Boom Suspension System (BSS) boosts productivity by up to 20 percent by absorbing shock and reducing bouncing and bucket spillage. Heavy-duty planetary axles ensure long life in the toughest conditions, and the front and rear 100-percent differential locks feature a dog clutch design to improve grip and maintain maximum traction on all terrain. These wheel loaders also feature a hydrostatic transmission that matches power to all operator requirements to provide excellent control in delicate work and full power for more demanding jobs.
