Volvo L350F Loader
The L350F is the largest wheel loader Volvo has ever produced. It weighs from 110,250 to 119,050 lbs., and is available with bucket capacities from 8.1 to 16.6 cu. yds. It achieves up to 106,290 lbf. of breakout force.
The 528-bhp Volvo D16E engine with V-ACT (Volvo Advanced Combustion Technology) system exceeds Tier III requirements. The HTE400 transmission has automatic lock-up in third and fourth gears to prevent losses in the torque converter when it's not needed. An automatic power shifting system offers a selection of gear shifting programs to suit the task and operator work style.
Load-sensing hydraulics feature variable-displacement pumps and load-sensing steering.
Hitachi Zaxis 160LC-3 Excavator
Even though it generates 10% more horsepower than the Zaxis 160LC, the 121-hp ZX160LC-3 uses less fuel thanks to new E, P and H/P modes. The E mode can save fuel consumption up to 13% compared to the P mode on the previous model.The unit also delivers 38,030 lbs. of drawbar pull (a nearly 13% increase) and 22,697 lbs. of bucket digging force. Maximum digging depth is 21 ft. 4 in.
The HIOS III hydraulic system balances engine performance and hydraulic flow for fast, smooth operations. Swing torque has been increased about 6%. Regenerative hydraulics and more hydraulic flow allow for faster arm roll-in and boom lower/arm movement.
Other key features include a stronger undercarriage, X-beam, side frames, idler brackets and front attachment. The larger Dash-3 CRES II cab comes with a wider seatback, more leg room and 47% more glass on the right-hand side.
