Volvo built its first wheel loader in the 1950s and introduced articulated dump trucks in the mid 1960s but the range as we know it today only started to come together towards the end of the century with the acquisition of French mini excavator manufacturer Pel-Job.
Further expansion saw the acquisition of Canadian motor grader manufacturer Champion and the excavator building arm of Korean conglomerate Samsung, Ingersoll Rand’s road building division and 70% of Chinese giant Shandong Lingong. In almost all instanced the products have been eventually rebranded as Volvo Construction Equipment.
Today Volvo produces wheel, skid steer and tracked loaders, backhoes, excavators, forestry carriers, demolition equipment, pipelayers, articulated haulers (ADTs), motor graders, milling equipment, pavers and rollers.
Its machines enjoy a good reputation for reliability and durability regardless of whether they are produced in Europe (Sweden, Germany and France), the US, Brazil, Korea or China. Many countries the owners of Volvo’s construction equipment rate the company’s aftersales service as one of the best. Volvo is also one of the world’s largest on-highway truck and diesel engine manufacturers giving it a high level of in-house expertise in areas such as emissions control and the use of alternative fuels.
The company was one of the first to develop a hybrid wheel loader but this has been put on hold while other innovations such as its Lock Up torque converter with free wheel stator and Optishift transmission with Reverse-by-Braking function can reduce fuel consumption by up to 15% while retaining the more familiar driveline.
