Volvo’s OptiShift technology reduces fuel consumption by up to 18%, increases operator comfort and reduces stress in the drivetrain.
The new L180H HL is a purpose-built, high-lift wheel loader designed by Volvo Construction Equipment for log handling. Loaded with innovations and fuel-saving features, this machine works in the most efficient and productive way. One example of this is Volvo’s unique OptiShift technology 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 supply power to the hydraulic functions according to demand, lowering fuel consumption. The powerful system ensures fast response for shorter cycle times while delivering smooth operation through superior control of both the load and the attachment.
