Volvo L45G/L50G Wheel Loaders
April 26, 2012

Loaded with potential, the L45G and L50G wheel loaders from Volvo Construction Equipment are in the 9-10 tonne class of machine – but with the versatility and performance of much larger models.  With the flexibility to work in a wide range of jobsites, these machines are fitted with a hydraulic attachment bracket for quick tool changeovers. The L45G and L50G feature the latest emissions-compliant engines and Volvo’s patented TP Linkage, ensuring high breakout force and parallel movement throughout the entire lifting range. This combination gives high tilt-back torque and lifting power, increasing productivity when loading or rehandling, while the progressive lift helps retain loose bucket material and minimizes disturbing the load when lifting pallets. The breakout torque is also useful if a log grapple is fitted, giving total control of the load in all positions. The combination of stable load and high-reach of the linkage design allows dumping into high-sided trucks.
