Volvo CE wheel loaderVolvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE), Shippensburg, Pa., has taken its L180H wheel loader and swapped in larger 875/69 R29 tires and a long boom, added a rehandling counterweight, and created a new truck-loading variation called the L180 3-Pass Rehandler. The machine is designed for rehandling applications, with a higher tipping load, better fuel efficiency and longer reach to fill a truck in three passes, the company said.

“We’ve had this concept in mind for several years, driven from conversations with our quarry and aggregate customers. The new L180 3-Pass Rehandler will take operators to the next level of loading efficiency. It’s exciting to introduce this game-changer to the market and see the response,” said Eric Yoemans, product manager — wheel loaders, Volvo CE.

The larger tires are designed for lateral traction and flotation, durability and resistance to cuts and impacts. The rehandling counterweight allows for a bucket that is larger than that on a standard L180H. Customers can choose between four different buckets.
