Volvo wheeled loader buckets
First publishedin Aggregates Business International
Volvo Construction Equipment has introduced three new buckets specifically designed to fit Volvo L110-L350 wheeled loaders: Volvo Sand bucket, Volvo Rehandling flat floor bucket, and Volvo Rehandling bucket, which will replace the current model.
The buckets are said to be easy to fill, thanks to the bucket shape, balanced floor back ratio and countersunk holes, and to improve fuel efficiency by up to 20%.
“Optimised spill guards deflect material for greater linkage protection, while curved side plates provide excellent containment, securing the material for more efficient operation. To prevent different material grades from mixing, the buckets feature minimised pockets,” says the company.
“For handling, stockpiling and loading processed materials such as sand, gravel and aggregate, Volvo Rehandling Flat Floor bucket is the perfect fit. When operating in soft ground conditions where tyre traction is compromised, Volvo Sand bucket is designed for handling sand or aggregate in small fractions.”
