Productivity, performance, fuel efficiency, uptime. Everything customers have come to expect from Volvo H-Series Wheel Loaders has been taken to a new level thanks to wide-ranging updates which have taken place over recent years. Now, giving you even more from your Volvo Wheel Loader.
When combined with the right machine configuration, the right attachment, and the right options for the application at hand, nothing comes close to the performance of a Volvo Wheel Loader – strengthened further by the support and experience of SMT Africa.
Loads more productivity
Benefit from increased productivity with the new generation of H-Series Volvo Wheel Loaders, packed with updates to deliver even more tonnes per hour than their predecessors.
Next generation optishift
Combining both lock-up and the Volvo patented Reverse By Braking (RBB), the next generation Optishift features new converters, a new shifting strategy, optimized gear ratios and reinforced bearings.
The lock-up function is available for all gears and the auto-customisation of the lock-up makes it possible to adapt the lock-up engagement for special working conditions.
Be more productive
Optimize your load cycles with Load Assist. Powered by Volvo Co-Pilot – the revolutionary in-cab display – Load Assist gives you access to a set of smart apps such as On-Board Weighing and Operator Coaching.
Work harder for longer
Your work doesn’t stop, and you need machines that won’t stop either; that’s why our machines are designed to go the distance and then some. Features including increased service intervals, ease of serviceability and the full support of SMT Africa help to ensure your machines stay where you need them most – out on the jobsite and working their best.
Machine monitoring made easy
Maximize machine uptime and reduce repair costs with the CareTrack telematics system. Choose to keep track of your machine yourself or let us take care of it with Volvo Active Care which provides 24/7 machine monitoring.
Increased service intervals
Keep uptime to a maximum and reduce maintenance costs with 1,000-hour engine service interval and drain intervals of up to 4,000 and 8,000 hours for the axle and biodegradable hydraulic oil respectively.
Complete routine servicing in no time thanks to the tiltable engine hood, tiltable cab, external dry disk parking brake, Quick fit connections and grouped service points with ground-level access.
Outstanding fuel efficiency
Fuel efficiency is an integral part of the overall productivity of your operation. Liters per hour is a useful measure, but it is only when we think about tonnes per liter that we can truly measure the return a machine is delivering on the fuel it consumes.
With features including a new transmission, next-generation OptiShift and rimpull control, when it comes to fuel efficiency, Volvo Wheel Loaders deliver some of the most impressive tonnes per liter in the industry.
Up to the challenge
Control the amount of rimpull you need according to prevailing under-wheel conditions, helping you to take on soft and slippery ground with ease. Select 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% or ‘Off’, to reduce wheel spin, increase efficiency and reduce unnecessary tire wear.
Next generation load sensing hydraulics
The cutting-edge Volvo hydraulics system saves power by harnessing the gravitational force during downward movements, resulting in a significant reduction in fuel consumption.
Manage the pressure
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) provides real-time information on tire pressure and temperature. The system alerts operators via the display should a tire require attention, helping to reduce tire wear and improve fuel efficiency.
