Volvo extends leadership in high lift Wheel Loader segment

Supplier News

The Volvo L180F HL Wheel Loader, available from CJD Equipment features a new lift arm design that offers increased lift height and maneuverability.

Designed for log handling applications the Volvo L180F HL Wheel Loader has a new lift arm design for improved lift height and maneuverability. Capable of reaching a lift height of 5.8 m under closed grapple, the L180F HL Wheel Loader allows an extra 210 mm of stack height over Volvo’s preceding E-series generation of Wheel Loaders. It also has a new tilt arm design for improved visibility. This has been achieved by removing the cross tube between the tilt arms. The lift cylinder protection, which was previously optional, is now standard equipment.

The L180F HL Wheel Loader is powered by a Volvo D12D LA E3 engine with maximum torque at 1,400 rpm. The L180F HL Wheel Loader features a 3.2 m2 grapple, four liquid-filled tires,  a log pusher, full cover mudguards with protection bar at the front and a grille guard that, at 36,600 kg, is 560 kg heavier that its predecessor. The front and (swing-out) rear mudguard option now also includes a protection bar with a mudguard extension made of rubber. This bar prevents logs from hitting and damaging the front mudguards and lights, and the rubber extension helps to keep the machine clean.

Access and serviceability is made simple on the L180F HL Wheel Loader with easily accessed side panels and service points. A central lube system is standard and the rear axle bearing is lubricated-for-life. The F-Series Wheel Loader comes with advanced electronic monitoring diagnostics which are designed to prolong machine life, enhance uptime and maximize productivity. CONTRONIC monitors functions in real time and alerts the operators if problems occur while MATRIS maps and analyses how the machine is handling and operating. VCADS Pro meanwhile, is a system that allows a machine to be fine-tuned to specific applications, further improving performance.
