Volvo’s G Series of wheel loaders—including the L150G, L180G and L220G—pair a Tier IV Interim-compliant engine with Volvo Advanced Combustion Technology, which allows higher torque at lower speeds. Other fuel-efficiency features include the OptiShift transmission, a Reverse by Braking function and the Eco-pedal for better fuel economy in slippery conditions. The intelligent, load-sensing hydraulic system provides 20% greater lift force and 10% greater breakout force, distributing power and fuel as needed.
