Volvo Construction Equipment Extends Log-Handling Abilities with New L200H High Lift Wheel Loader

Volvo Construction Equipment has launched the new L200H High Lift wheel loader in North America, featuring a 27% increase in lifting capacity and a 13% larger grapple than the L180H model it replaces. This, combined with a stronger base unit, means the L200H High Lift can handle more timber per hour, upping productivity and driving down operating costs.

Volvo CE has built upon its L180H High Lift wheel loader design to create the all-new L200H High Lift, featuring more lifting power and larger capacity grapples.

A new loading unit features a reinforced lift arm system, cross beam and rotator unit. This increases the machine’s maximum lifting capacity from 19,401 lbs. on the L180H High Lift to 24,600 lbs. Grapples come in a range of shapes and sizes to suit site requirements with Volvo design that embodies half a century of high lift know-how. To accommodate this extra capacity and ensure the stability of the loader, larger 875-type low-profile L4 tires come standard.

“Volvo CE introduced the world’s first high lift wheel loader in 1974, and with the L200, we’re continuing our tradition of producing high-performing, low TCO machines,” said Stephen Roy, president, Region Americas, Volvo CE. “We’re really proud of this purpose-built design.”

Downtime down and service simplified

Long service life, reduced maintenance requirements, straightforward access to service points and a range of complementary services all help keep maintenance costs down and uptime to a maximum. Like its predecessor, the L200H High Lift is easy to service — its cab can be tilted to 30º or 70º. Combined with an electronically operated engine hood, this makes gaining access to work on the machine straightforward.

Inspecting and cleaning the engine compartment is also easier, thanks to additional handrails on both sides of the machine. Thousand-hour engine service intervals and quick drain/fill connectors make changing the hydraulic oil, transmission oil, engine oil and front axle oil fast and easy.
