The L350H is designed for heavy infrastructure, quarry and mining work.
Volvo Construction EquipmentProduct manager Anteneh Gebremeskel told Equipment World the upgraded 540-gross-horsepower L350H has a more responsive hydraulics system, featuring new lift and tilt cylinders, and an increased hydraulic working pressure allowing for 10% faster work cycles and higher productivity.
An upgraded driveline features new Volvo axles and Volvo transmission, which enables the third-generation OptiShift technology.
Gebremesekl says efficiency is further enhanced by an optimized gear shifting ratio and the new converter.
Volvo says customers can also upgrade to heavy-duty axles with fully floating shafts, planetary hub reduction and maintenance-free rear axle trunnion bearings.
Technology including Telematics and Load Assist improve efficiency and uptime with regular use.
Proper load weight is monitored by the On-Board Weighing app, providing real-time data for the bucket and payload. The Operator Coaching Advanced app provides real-time data to operators improving performance.
Volvo says operators can configure the machine according to the job with a choice of three hydraulic modes, customizable lockup engagement and rimpull control, while the bucket-leveling function automatically returns the bucket to level, from both dump and curl positions.
