Volvo BL61

The Volvo BL61 Backhoe Loader was the result of years of research into what customers wanted most. Volvo then built a machine that provided durability, power, quality and environmental care.

The BL61's boom had a closed box welded construction with fewer components and fewer welds to give it superior strength. The kingpost is composed of cast iron to allow flexible movement and swing while still maintaining uncompromising strength. The narrow S-style boom offered visibility.
