Highlights will include the company’s very latest additions to its excavator, wheeled loader and compact equipment product ranges, including the new EC220E tracked excavator, EW160E wheeled excavator and the L90H wheeled loader.
Building on the reputation of its D-Series excavators, the new 22-tonne EX220E offers improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions thanks to its Volvo D6 Stage IV engine. Increased pump input power makes for highly responsive operation and greater productivity, with faster cycle times, says Volvo.
The new EW160E is the latest incarnation of Volvo’s popular 16-tonne wheelie (which has been around since 1998) while the 17-tonne L90H wheeled loader joins the two smaller L60H and L70H machines in the range.
The new L90H is powered by the same D6 Stage IV engine as the EX220E excavator.
Volvo will also be wheeling out its futuristic GaiaX excavator concept (which readers might remember seeing at last year’s Conexpo show in Las Vegas) again. Hailed as the shape of things to come (in 2030, estimates Volvo) the GaiaX is an electrically-powered machine that makes use of ‘augmented reality’ control. Like most other exhibitors, Volvo is fielding a team of technical sales people to welcome visitors to the stand and explain the wonders of their latest innovations.
