Volvo L150E wheel loaderMeeting Tier 3 emissions limits meant replacing the L150E wheel loader's 9-liter engine with a Volvo D12D diesel. It's the same V-ACT 12-liter as is in the L180E and L220E. The D12D mirrors power and torque output of the 9-liter (284 horsepower and 1,056 foot-pounds at 1,600 rpm) and produces 37 percent more torque at engine-idle speeds. The loader can do more work at lower engine speed, reducing strain on the engine and minimizing fuel consumption and noise.
