The L45G and L50G wheel loaders from Volvo meet Tier 4-Interim emissions legislation with the Volvo D4 four-cylinder turbocharged off-highway diesel engine, which features cooled gas recirculation and a particulate filter with active regeneration.
The diesel particulate filter temporarily holds the particulate matter and then incinerates it, further reducing emissions. This process is conducted without any loss of performance during operation, Volvo says.
Both the L45G and L50G come with an infinitely variable hydrostatic transmission. Maximum rim pull is available at all speeds, regardless of travel direction. For work in wet and/or heavy conditions, 100 percent differential locks in the axles allow all wheels to turn simultaneously. The rear axle is allowed to oscillate, increasing stability of the machine by maintaining ground contact and providing optimum traction in difficult terrain.
