Volvo CE launches new L200H High Lift wheel loader in North America 2022

Volvo Construction Equipment has launched the brand new L200H High Lift Wheel loader in North America, featuring a 27% improvement in lifting capacity and a 13% bigger grapple over its predecessor, the L180H version it replaced. 

The combination of this and an improved base unit means that the L200H High Lift may be able to handle more wood per hour, increasing productivity and reducing operating costs.

Volvo design incorporates more than a century of expertise in the high Lift. A new loading unit is equipped with an upgraded lift arm as well as a cross beam and rotator unit. 

This boosts the maximum lifting capacity to 19,401 lbs in the L180H High Lift to 24,600 pounds. Volvo has been able to accommodate this increased capacity and has ensured the reliability of the loader by incorporating larger low-profile 875-type L4 tires on this model. Grapples are available in various sizes and shapes to accommodate the site’s specific needs.

“Volvo CE unveiled the world’s first high-lift wheel loader in 1974, and with the L200, it continues our long-standing tradition of delivering top-quality cost-effective TCO devices,” said Stephen Roy, President, region Americas, Volvo CE. “We’re very happy with this design specifically designed for us.”

Technology is important when it comes to

L200H High Lift L200H High Lift is the first model with a high lift compatible with Load Assist, Volvo’s suite of apps accessible through the inside-cab Co-Pilot display. The display is created to increase efficiency and profitability.

The On-Board Weighting app gives live information on the payload of the grapple to help reduce overloading, underloading and waiting times for reweighing. Operator Coaching Advanced is an app that Operator Coaching Advanced app helps operators make use of this loader at its greatest potential by giving real-time data and instructions.

Load Assist is also equipped with a system for monitoring tire pressure that allows you to monitor the temperature and pressure of both hydro-inflated and air-inflated tires from the comfort of the cabin. Given that the right tire pressure could reduce fuel consumption by 2 % to 4% and add between 6% and 10% to the tire’s life, it is an important cost-saving device.

Dependable driveline

This L200H Hi-Lift can travel through rough terrains at high speed; it can be used on uneven terrain and put the least stress on paved surfaces. This is because of its four-wide tires as well as its articulated steering. As per Volvo CE, these capabilities help simplify the preparation of sites and help keep costs associated with maintenance affordable.

Additionally, the new cooling system for the external axle oil system helps reduce the wheels’ temperatures, improving their lifespan and the life of the brakes. The system also has an oil filter that helps keep the oil in the axle fresher, extending the interval between oil changes to four hours (or 18 months).

Its gear shift has been tuned to accommodate increased workloads, resulting in rapid speed and improved smoothness. Technology that has been tested and proven, such as OptiShift, integrates the Reverse-By-Braking function and a torque converter with the lock-up feature, aiding in maximizing fuel efficiency.

Multifaceted reach capability

With the capacity to stack logs up to 23 feet high – 60 percent more than a standard wheel loader, the Volvo High Lift arm design lets you make the most of your storage space for timber yards. It makes it simple to reach every login stack, thanks to its 360-degree rotation and the possibility of tilting. Additionally, a brand upgraded, more robust rotating unit that is maintenance-free has an integrated dampening system which improves stability.

Service and maintenance that is simple

Longer service lives, lower maintenance requirements, simple accessibility to points of service, and various other services can make it easier to keep maintenance costs at a minimum and ensure that uptime is at its highest. Similar to its predecessor, the L200H Lift is also high-quality. The Lift is simple to maintain as its cabin can be tilted up to 30 degrees or even 70deg. The hood makes access to the machine simple in conjunction with an electronically controlled engine.

Cleaning and inspecting the engine compartment can be simpler, thanks to the additional handrails on each side of the device. The engine service intervals are 2,000 hours, and drain/fill connectors quickly enable changing the hydraulic oil, transmission oil, engine oil, and front axle oil.

A comfortable office

Volvo CE Cabs are renowned for their large design, well-designed layout, and outstanding visibility. They are also known for their excellent visibility. L200H High Lift also comes with seating options. A specially designed lever with multiple functions guarantees precise control of the hydraulics. Operators can customize settings using their mobile phones.

To ease the operator’s fatigue and increase productivity, the option Comfort Drive Control gives operators the chance to steer the machine with a lever instead of a steering wheel. This is especially effective for speedy truck unloading.

In addition, because operators need to be alert to what’s happening around their machines, the new front-view camera offers additional views at the top of the unit and even at the top, and the view is shown on an in-cab monitor.
