m Volvo ready for every

Volvo are smaller models to the new G-Series - the L50G. The objectve in the new design from Volvo is not only to work with a wide range of atachments but conditons.

hese machines are fted with a hydraulic atachment et for quick tool changeovers.

Both models feature the latest emissions-compliant ngines and, to deliver high breakout force and parallel movement throughout the entre lifing range, Volvo’s nted TP Linkage.

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

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

Higher torque – with lower emissions

The L45G and L50G are fted with Volvo’s four-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged off-highway diesel engine, which features cooled gas recirculation and a particulate filter with actve regeneraton. The actve-type diesel partculate filter (DPF) temporarily holds the particulate matter and then incinerates it, further reducing emissions. This process is conducted without any loss of performance during operaton.

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

LiveLink Connectivity on 80% of products

JCB has also announced its sophistcated LiveLink telematcs system is to be fted as standard on 80% of its products sold across Europe from January 2012.

The company has been steadily increasing both the number of machines and the number of countries covered by the advanced telematcs systems. From January 1, JCB’s 3CX and 4CX backhoe loaders, side-engined telescopic handlers and tracked and wheeled excavators will all be fted with the system. It is also standard across Europe on all wheeled loading shovels above 8 tonnes operatng weight.

Tim Burnhope, JCB Chief Innovation and Growth Officer, said: “The benefits of JCB LiveLink are many-fold: not only does it ofers customers improved visibility of their feet, it also provides detailed performance and operatonal informaton which allows business owners to run their operaton even more efciently and cost-efectvely.

More importantly in many areas. Tim Burnhope goes on to say “It also protects machines from theft and this enhanced level of security can result in reduced insurance premiums as well as greater peace of mind.”
