Volvo Construction Equipment L45G/L50G Wheel Loaders
June 6, 2012

The L45G and L50G wheel loaders from Volvo Construction Equipment are in the 9 – 10 ton machine weight class — but with the versatility and performance of much larger models. Even with their compact design, the new L45G and L50G are big when it comes to application potential. 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 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. 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 complete load control in all positions. The combination of stable load and high-reach linkage design allows for dumping into high-sided trucks.
