Volvo's MC115C skid steer is a 84-hp machine with 2,600-lb. rated operating capacity. Height to hinge pin on the vertical-lift loader is 10 ft. 5 in. The single-boom design was pioneered by JCB, from whom Volvo sources its loaders. Side-door cab entry not only protects the operator from having to climb over the attachment to access the controls, but allows for a larger cab than twin-armed loaders. The single boom also dramatically improves visibility 270 degrees around the operator's station. The PowerBoom uses 20% more steel than both of most twin-arm loader systems, and Volvo stands behind a lifetime boom warranty.
