Volvo and SDLG have not yet committed to a date for introducing SDLG-branded backhoes and graders (formerly Volvo products) to the U.S.

"Variables, including economic climate, market specifications and logistics are currently being examined. We will communicate the timing for North America when it is finalized," a spokesperson told Construction Equipment in a written statement.

On November 13, Volvo announced it would discontinue development and production of its current Volvo-branded backhoe loaders and motor graders and transfer production to its "value brand" Chinese company, SDLG. That entity already markets four wheel loaders in the U.S. through Volvo Construction Equipment dealers.
