Volvo G-Series Wheel Loaders Feature Greater Lifting Force

Featuring new engines and driveline systems for improved productivity, lower emissions, greater smoothness, serviceability and operator comfort, the G-Series is the latest generation of wheel loaders from Volvo Construction Equipment. These new models are fitted with a Tier 4i/Stage IIIB certified engine that is married to drive train, hydraulics and lifting systems that are all designed and produced by Volvo to work in perfect, productive, fuel-efficient harmony. That’s not all – the G-Series also features a 20 percent increase in lifting force and 10 percent improvement in breakout force.

“These are exciting times for Volvo Construction Equipment, both in North America and globally,” said Olof Persson, the company’s president and chief executive. “We are outperforming the improving market conditions by offering a young fleet of innovative products tailored to meet the needs of specific customer groups, combined with a strong and loyal distribution network and a substantial investment program.”

The G-Series is a complete range of loaders that meet the requirements of the Stage IIIB (in Europe) and Tier 4i (in the US) emissions legislation that came into force on January 1, 2011. Part of the Red Dot design-winning G-Series, the L150G, L180G and L220G are all fitted with Volvo’s 13 litre (13 liter), six-cylinder turbocharged Volvo Advanced Combustion Technology (V-ACT) off-highway diesel engine, which features cooled gas recirculation and a particulate filter with active regeneration. The active-type diesel particulate filter (DPF) temporarily holds the particulate matter and then incinerates it, further reducing emissions. This process is conducted without any loss of performance or operation, according to the company.
