Site Equipment

Smaller loaders
from Volvo
ready for every terrain

The latest introduction from Volvo are smaller models to the new G-Series - the new compact L45G and L50G. The objective in the new design from Volvo is to increase versatility not only to work with a wide range of attachments but also in all ground conditions.

These machines are fitted with a hydraulic attachment bracket for quick tool changeovers.

Both models feature the latest emissions-compliant engines and, to deliver high breakout force and parallel movement throughout the entire lifting range, Volvo’s patented TP Linkage.

This combination gives high tilt-back torque and lifting power, thereby increasing productivity when loading or rehandling, while the progressive lift helps retain loose bucket material and minimizes disturbing the load when lifting pallets. The combination of stable load and high-reach of the linkage design allows dumping into high-sided trucks.

They share the same modern stylistic redesign of the rest of the G-Series range. The compact Volvo wheel loaders are smaller in size than many competitor machines because the shorter frame is achieved by siting the engine conversely. The compact size obviously provides for higher manoeuvrability in restricted work areas.

L45G and L50G specificationsHigher torque – with lower emissions

The L45G and L50G are fitted with Volvo’s four-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged 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 during operation.

Producing between 73 and 85 kW (99-116 hp), Volvo claim that the D4 engine leads the industry in terms of fuel efficiency, reliability and noise. The production of torque and power at low engine speeds, combined with load-sensing hydraulics, removes the need to overrun the engine, which in turn extends engine life, lowers fuel use and reduces noise.

The engine cooling fan allows the engine to reach optimum working temperature faster, operating only when needed. The fan is also reversible, automatically blowing air back through the cooling pack in order to remove debris drawn into the radiator.
