Volvo’s OptiShift technology reduces fuel consumption by up to 18%, increases operator comfort and reduces stress in the drivetrain.
Innovation is at the core of Volvo Construction Equipment. That’s why our engineers are developing clever innovations to make equipment more fuel efficient while reducing emissions and environmental impact. OptiShift technology – a unique technical advancement which reduces fuel consumption by up to 18% and increases performance in wheel loaders – is just one example of this.
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, combined with the fuel efficient Volvo engine, supply power to the hydraulic functions according to demand, to boost efficiency and lower fuel consumption. The system ensures fast response for shorter cycle times while delivering smooth operation through superior control of both the load and the attachment.
