Volvo has continued to add to its stable of new T4-I wheel loaders, rolling out the L60G, L70G and L90G, all with the company’s patented TP linkage that keeps the arms parallel through the lifting range.

The new units have a Volvo 6-liter, 6-cylinder turbocharged 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.

The production of torque and power at low engine speeds, combined with load-sensing hydraulics, promotes work at a lower rpm, which in turn extends engine life, lowers fuel usage, and dramatically reduces noise, according to Volvo. Fuel use and noise are also reduced, thanks to a hydraulically driven, electronically controlled fan, which increases fan speeds only when needed.

Volvo’s L90G wheel loader also features a 23 percent increase in lifting force and 19 percent improvement in breakout force over the previous model.

Load-sensing hydraulics deliver power to hydraulic functions only when needed, eliminating unnecessary oil pumping. Fitted with high capacity axial piston pumps with variable flow, the working hydraulic pressure has been increased from 3,771 to 4,496 psi.
