Volvo Construction Equipment (CE) India Pvt. Ltd. has launched a stage IV compliant range. The new range comprises of pneumatic rollers, wheel loaders, pavers and compactors for the Indian market. Claimed to offer best in class performance, the new range has been built keeping in mind Indian duty cycles. Dimitrov Krishnan, Managing Director, Volvo Construction Equipment India Pvt. Ltd. stated, “We want to be a dependable partner for Indian contractors. We are delighted to present these brand-new machines that offer tremendous scope in terms of overall performance, versatility and reliability.” The company launched the new PT220C pneumatic roller and the L90H and L120H wheel loaders. The new paver fleet includes P4370D ABG wheeled paver, P5320D ABG, P7920D ABG and P8820D ABG tracked paver. The new compactor range includes the single drum SD110C compactor and double drum DD90C and DD100C compactors.
The PT220C measures 5060 mm long, 2270 mm wide and 3430 mm tall. It is a 10.5-tonne pneumatic roller with a two-speed, and maintenance free, hydrostatic transmission mated to a 97.6 hp (99 bhp) engine running on four wide front and rear tyres overlapped by 50 mm to provide a fullwidth coverage. It has a pressurised, rust-proof 550-litre Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) water system that provides an adjustable flow rate to meet the operator needs and to help eliminate material build-up on the tyre surface. It also aids in maintaining mat surface temperature and reducing water refills. When it comes to operator comfort, the vehicle offers a sliding console, operator seatbelt and seat presence indicator, suspension on both seats and a USB charger. Tyre contact can be optimised by the adjusted tyre pressure, managed from the central point. It helps achieve target compaction in fewer passes.
The Volvo L90H is claimed to offer three per cent more tipping load and 73 mm greater lifting height. It also provides the optional lock-up function. At the heart of the L90H is a Volvo D6J engine that makes 181.4 hp (184 bhp) power at 1700 rpm. It can attain a top speed of 50 kmph. The L90H can hold up to 9.7-tonne of static tipping load at full turn and has an operating weight of 14.5-17.3-tonne. Equipped with the Torque Parallel (TP) linkage, it keeps the attachments parallel throughout the lifting range along with offering high breakout and lifting force. The company claims that the vehicle is frugal courtesy the ‘Eco’ pedal and the new optional lockup function. The lock-up feature eliminates losses in the torque converter by creating a direct drive between the engine and transmission. A rimpull feature is available that can reduce tyre wear and prevent wheel spin for effective bucket filling. The operator can select the optimum rimpull to match the application and ground conditions.
