Volvo articulated hauler G-Series: keeping control of operator performance
1 February 2019
Volvo Construction Equipment has updated its G-Series articulated hauler range. New features include cruise control, downhill speed control and OptiShift, all reinforcing the G-Series’ position as the number one choice for operators.
A comfortable operator is a more productive operator and when other machines are onsite, most operators prefer Volvo. The new G-Series helps you maintain good productivity all day, every day – even in the most adverse conditions – thanks to its superior comfort, ease of operation and safety.
Total operator control
The G-Series is packed with features to help operators get the most from the machine, such as hill assist, load and dump brake and dynamic Volvo Engine Brake.
With the latest series of updates these features are now joined by the new cruise control and downhill speed control. Operators can set and adjust the cruise control to maintain a constant travel speed for smoother and more efficient hauling, and when operating downhill the new downhill speed control enables operators to maintain their control and speed. The result of both innovations is enhanced safety, comfort and productivity in all conditions.
The ergonomic cab and intuitive controls are designed to suit all operators. Automatic functions, such as the new OptiShift that further improves fuel efficiency and productivity via faster cycle times and increased operator comfort, help offer greater ease of operation for an unrivalled operator experience.
Comfort and safety
The new Volvo articulated G-Series is designed to make operators feel more comfortable during long work shifts. The unique Volvo steering, excellent suspension, low noise levels, space and visibility all contribute to reduce operator fatigue for increased productivity.
Whether you are an operator, trainer, technician or site worker; safety on site is of fundamental importance and the superior visibility and efficient lighting of the G-Series combine with a number of intelligent safety features to keep everyone safer. Features such as dump support and the brake test, which is a stationary test of the parking brake and load and dump brake, help to keep the operator and those working around the machine safer, even in the most demanding working environments.
