Volvo’s upgraded L350H wheel loader now ‘even tougher’

By Catrin JonesJuly 13, 2022

The new Volvo L350H wheel loader is built to do more, both faster and smarter.

Volvo CE says the new L350H is tougher than its predecessor, the L350F, which was first introduced to the market in 2007. The L350H is designed to tackle a range of applications, from mining and quarrying to heavy infrastructure.

The L350H has been upgraded with a number of improvements, including 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.

The machine is said to have an even tougher form due to a robust upper-center hinge bearing and updated frames to accommodate the new axles and transmission.

Volvo says the telematics connectivity and established features, such as the Load Assist suite of apps accessed from the in-cab Volvo Co-Pilot display, have been further enhanced to improve efficiency and uptime.

The optional Tire Pressure Monitoring System enables the pressure and temperature of tires to be checked from the comfort of the cab. This is said to to help extend

tire life and save fuel.

Volvo CE says that the upgraded L350H provides the same operator experience as the previous model.
