Volvo's OptiShift technology reduces fuel consumption by up to 18%, increases operator comfort and reduces stress in the drivetrain.
Since Volvo Construction Equipment began designing wheel loaders in 1954, machine owners and operators have got to know the legendary reputation of these productive, fuel efficient machines. The new H-Series wheel loaders feature state-of-the-art technology such as OptiShift – a unique technical advancement which reduces fuel consumption by up to 18% and increases machine performance.
RBB is ideal for short cycle or truck loading applications. When the operator changes direction the Volvo patented RBB function senses the loader's direction and slows the machine by applying the service brakes automatically. This increases fuel efficiency, improves operator comfort and increases machine lifetime.
Volvo's load-sensing hydraulics, combined with the fuel efficient Volvo engine, supply power to the hydraulic functions according to demand, to boost efficiency and lower fuel consumption. The system ensures fast response for shorter cycle times while delivering smooth operation through superior control of both the load and the attachment.
