Replacing the L330E, Volvo says its flagship L350F offers improvements in all major performance categories. Weighing from 50 to 54 tons, this model has undergone more pre-production testing on real site applications than any other Volvo loader. The machine features a new 532 gross horsepower Tier 3 Volvo engine, stronger hydraulics, a new Volvo transmission with lock-up and new axles. All that leads to improved fuel efficiency, faster cycle times and increased productivity, the company says. A larger Volvo Care Cab offers air conditioning; interior insulation from noise, dust and vibrations; improved controls; and anti-slip surfaces. Estimated list price: $650,000.
