With a roomier CareCab, the BL71B ‘Prestige’ sold to Andy Matravers of Minehead Somerset has an operating weight of 9.8 tonnes and is powered by a Volvo 5 litre Tier III low emission engine developing 94 nett h.p. The torque converter on the machine is one of the largest in the industry and has excellent peak torque and torque rise and this couple to the powershift transmission maintains progressive traction – even on steep gradients. A differential lock on the rear axle is engaged via a foot switch on the side of the brake pedal and provides maximum rear wheel grip over slippery surfaces.
Both the loader and excavator benefit from flow sharing hydraulics that enable multi-functioning for efficient and smooth operation thanks to load sensing hydraulics that constantly adapt to the needs of the job in hand. With oil delivery that matches the required force, there is always the speed and power required for all hydraulic functions.
In applications such as load and carry, where speed is important, the system efficiently delivers the required flow.
The redesigned Volvo CareCab on the BL71B offers 15% more space over its predecessor since the room between the operator’s seat and the left side of the cab has been increased, as has space around the excavator pilot towers, making the position change between loader and excavator easier and more convenient.
