Volvo Launch New and Improved L350H

Volvo’s newest edition to their wheel loader range, the L350H was unveiled at ConExpo in Las Vegas and is said to deliver greater productivity and better fuel efficiency. This machine is now ready to order immediately from Pat O’Donnell & Co.

Fuel Efficiency

The largest model in the Volvo wheeled loader range, the 350H comes with a new powertrain, hydraulics and operator environment, as well as a new overall design.

This impressive 50 tonne machine is fitted with next-generation load sensing hydraulics and powered by a Tier 4 Final D16J engine, for high torque at low rpm. The hydraulic system and drivetrain improvements, coupled with the latest Volvo engine technology, make the L350H up to 10% more fuel efficient in comparison to the L350F it replaces.

The new load sensing hydraulic system works in greater harmony with the drivetrain, increasing response times (and lifting and lowering speed of the newly designed buckets) resulting in up to 5% faster cycle times.

Volvo’s Fully Automatic Power Shift (FAPS) system allows for machine operation in the optimal, fuel efficient, gear, according to speed, kick-down and engine braking, enhancing fuel efficiency. 

Cab Comfort

The new cab boasts excellent visibility, minimal noise and vibration levels, as well as Automatic Climate Control (ACC), to ensure an all-round comfortable climate in the cab. Controls can also be configured to suit operator preferences.

The next generation Contronic monitoring system and digital display incorporate the latest improvements in intelligent Human Machine Interface (HMI). The system monitors operation and performance in real-time, providing the operator with all necessary machine information.

Service Access and Safety

Routine daily maintenance checks have been made quick and easy with an improved engine hood design allowing complete access to the engine compartment. Engine side hood panels and a platform around the cab also enable operators or technicians to move easily around the machine.

Operator safety is the main priority with steps and sturdy handrails into the cab for easy entry and exit. LED lights have been installed at the entrance of the cab along with reflective stickers that follow the machines contours also helps to increase machine visibility.

When operating in the dark, operators can be sure of their surroundings with long-life LED work lights the optional rear-view camera, equipped with a new adjustable mounting bracket. New side-view mirrors also make it easier for the operator to safely monitor operations from all angles.
