How to Select the Right Tires for Wheel Loader Applications

Volvo Mid-Size Loader Updates Deliver up to 25% Greater Fuel Efficiency

The L60H, L70H, and L90H 2.0 wheel loaders offer improved fuel efficiency, higher tipping loads and maintenance-friendly features.

“With the L60H and L70H joining the previously announced L90H 2.0, we have completed the H-Series 2.0 update for our mid-size wheel loaders,” said Chris Connolly, product manager, wheel loaders, Volvo Construction Equipment. “Now, operators can enjoy the latest innovations on all three machines, helping them to work more efficiently and productively.”

Greater fuel efficiency
The L60H, L70H, and L90H 2.0 wheel loaders boast up to 25 percent greater fuel efficiency than their predecessor models. Among the fuel-saving features are:

  • Lock-up torque converter (L70H-L90H option): Lowers rpm and increases speed, resulting in faster cycles times and up to 25% improved fuel efficiency.
  • Smart Control function: Ensures the correct torque in all situations, improving engine and hydraulic harmony, and helping to shorten cycle times and conserve fuel.
  • Smooth Control function: Helps operators maintain a steady throttle position on uneven ground, resulting in a more even engine speed and smoother ride while saving fuel.
  • Rim Pull Control function: Reduces wheel spin and slippage, thereby saving fuel, reducing tire wear and improving productivity while lowering total cost of ownership.

Key features
Other features on the H-Series 2.0 wheel loaders include:

  • Tipping load: Increased by 1.7% for the L60H, 1.6% for the L70H and 3.4% for the L90H
  • New loader arm design: Optimized design resulting in increased payload
  • Slide-able cooler: Provides easier access to remove dirt and debris
  • Larger hydraulic oil cooler: 50% larger cooling area improves the cooling capacity and lowers the hydraulic oil temperature
  • Dump height: 3 inches higher for the L90H
  • Electro-servo hydraulic controls: Features adjustable sensitivity and allows operators to shift quickly between linear and single-lever controls (available on L70H and L90H)
  • Improved serviceability: Redesigned engine and transmission oil fill points for cleaner, faster adding of fluids
  • External axle cooler option available starting December 2018 (L70H, L90H): Minimizes the risk of overheating and prolongs axle oil change interval
  • Delayed engine shutdown option: Reduces engine wear by avoiding hot turbo shutdownsWatch a video on the L60H, L70H and L90H 2.0 wheel loaders.

Volvo support
The H-Series 2.0 wheel loaders are backed by the Volvo Lifetime Frame and Structure Warranty, which covers the frame, articulation joint and loader arm for the life of the machine under the initial owner.

They also support ActiveCare Direct™, the Volvo telematics service that provides 24/7/365 machine monitoring and fleet utilization reporting directly from Volvo.

KCMA Corporation Announces New Company Name and Corporate Structure and Logo

KCMA Corporation, a subsidiary of Hitachi Construction Machinery Group, will change their corporate name to Hitachi Construction Machinery Loaders America effective January 1, 2018.

KCMA Corporation has been active in the North American construction equipment market since 1962 when Kawasaki Heavy Industries built their first articulated wheel loader in Japan. As one of the largest heavy industries in Japan, Kawasaki provided a depth of engineering expertise that eventually made their wheel loader a major global player. As they introduced the wheel loader into the North American market in 1978, they found a positive reception for a productive, high-quality loader. They established a solid support system built around an extensive, independent network of dealers that were committed to providing quality support along with quality equipment.

A joint venture with Hitachi Construction Machinery (HCM) was entered into in 2010 to further develop the global scope of the wheel loader product. This relationship combined the technological and manufacturing resources of Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Hitachi Construction Machinery Group to develop Tier 4 wheel loader technology. HCM completed the purchase of KCM from Kawasaki in 2016, and today, as a subsidiary of one of the largest construction machinery companies in the world is securely poised for growth in the North American wheel loader market.

“This solidifies the commitment of Hitachi Construction Machinery Group to the North American market,” states Masaaki Hirose, President Hitachi Construction Machinery Loaders America. Previously President of HCM’s dealer in Indonesia, and currently holding the position of Senior Office and Deputy General Manager America Business Development in the Hitachi Construction Machinery Group, Hirose was named President of KCMA Corporation in May 2017.

Hitachi Construction Machinery Loaders America intends to increase production and streamline their wheel loader offering in the North American market with manufacturing facilities in Banshu, Japan; Ryugasaki, Japan, and Newnan, Georgia.

The tradition of offering outstanding parts availability, an unmatched factory component exchange program, customer and dealer training programs, flexible warranty programs, and a wide range of services and programs, will continue to expand under the Hitachi Construction Machinery Loaders America corporate structure.

Look for the new corporate website and updated communication materials to be introduced in the coming months. For additional information and current product offerings visit www.HitachiCM.US.
