Volvo BM / Michigan L150

The L150 was yet another wheel loader packed with revolutionary solutions. The TP-linkage (Torque Parallel) lift arm system, the Care Cab with excellent all-round visibility and top-class ventilation, highly efficient dust-filters and enclosed wet brakes to name a few.

Up to serial number 2080 (60500 US), the machine was named L150. After that, a generation change was made and the machine was renamed L150C.

The machine could be fitted with either a standard engine (TD 102 GC), or a low emission engine (TD 102 KCE).

During the production years, the rear and front axles were changed, as was  the transmission.
