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.
The Volvo patented RBB function senses the loader’s direction and slows the machine when the operator changes direction by applying the service brakes automatically. This increases fuel efficiency and improves operator comfort. RBB is ideal for short cycle or truck loading applications.
