The Volvo L350H is ideal for heavy-duty applications thanks to its proven Z-bar lifting arm with double sealing on each of the pins, and a strong frame structure, which is joined by a reinforced upper center hinge and new Volvo axles. And whatever the job, Volvo CE has the specialized package (of machine features, tires & attachments) for maximum performance.

Evolution of Excellence

The new Volvo L350H comes with a few notable improvements. A more responsive hydraulics system featuring new lift and tilt cylinders, and an increased hydraulic working pressure allows for 10% faster work cycles and higher productivity.

An upgraded driveline features new Volvo axles and an all-new Volvo transmission, allowing third generation OptiShift to be fitted as standard. This proven technology integrates the Reverse by Braking function and the lock up function in transmission to boost fuel efficiency. An optimized gear shifting ratio and new converter deliver further efficiency improvements.

The machine also boasts an even tougher form thanks to a new, more robust upper center hinge bearing and updated frames to accommodate the new axles and transmission.

A partner in productivity

Extended service intervals  – doubled to 1,000 hours for the engine and to 4,000 hours for an axle oil change –keeps the machines working for longer and reduces costs. Downtime is also minimized thanks to heavy-duty axles with fully floating shafts, planetary hub reduction and maintenance-free rear axle trunnion bearings.

Telematics connectivity and features such as Load Assist deliver further efficiency and uptime improvements, whilst tire pressure and temperature can be checked from the comfort of the cab via the optional Tire Pressure Monitoring System – extending tire life and saving fuel.

On-Board Weighing provides real-time insight into the load of the bucket and payload of the load receiver, making overloading, underloading and waiting times a thing of the past. And complementary Volvo Services, such as Productivity Report, EcoOperator training and ActiveCare offer valuable insights to lower cost per ton and improve the way the machine is run.

Comfort guaranteed

Comfort, convenience and safety are front of mind. As well as standard remote-controlled door opening, air-conditioning and secondary steering system, there is also outstanding visibility complemented by the optional electrically adjusted heated rearview mirrors, rearview camera and radar detect system.

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, helping to reduce operator fatigue.

Whatever the application, the Volvo L350H is a heavy-duty powerhouse that is ready for action – delivering a lower total cost of ownership for a more profitable performance.
