Today, Volvo Construction Equipment offers four tracked models in its C-Series compact track loader product line — MCT85C, MCT110C, MCT125C and MCT135C (59.9 to 92 hp) with vertical lift and rated operating capacities from 1,900 to 3,000 lbs. These Volvo tracked machines provide customers with versatility and deliver needed power transfer from the driveline to the ground, while assuring the stability and traction needed in applications.
Designed with a first-time owner, lifetime-warranted single loader arm, these compact track loaders deliver loading performance and durability, along with better visibility and ease of entry and exiting via the side entry. This eliminates the need for operators to climb over the bucket or attachment preventing a possibility of slipping or tripping.
Dependable track performance provides increased stability on steep grades and rough ground. Tracks deliver higher traction and flotation, along with lower ground pressure for the ability to work in inclement conditions, improving year-round availability. Vertical lift makes the C-Series ideal for truck loading with more reach at full height as well as a wide range of material handling applications.
The single loader arm design effectively distributes the load over the single loader arm without affecting balance or stability. The cab also features a large top window for improved visibility during truck loading. Each model features sufficient tip height and reach, along with powerful lift capacity in all applications. The optional boom suspension system makes Volvo compact track loaders highly efficient in repeated load-and-carry operations. The Volvo cab is sealed and pressurized, keeping out dust and noise and keeping operator fatigue levels down. More importantly, in an emergency exit situation these machines are much easier to get out of than traditional format compact track loaders, as exit is through the large front window rather than a small rear window.
Volvo C-Series compact track loaders offer improved service access through a forward-tilting cab and large rear compartment service door and all service and maintenance points are accessible through simple, safe means. The side entry and exit of the cab makes it possible for the operator to engage the loader arm support without having to pass under a raised boom or needing to place the safety boom support.
Advice to Buyers
“The design of the single arm boom on compact track loaders allows side entry and eliminates the need for the operator to climb over tools and attachments. Compact track loaders today are also much more fuel efficient and meet emissions requirements, which speak to the core value of environmental care,” says Lars Arnold, utility product manager with Volvo Construction Equipment. “An important consideration when selecting the right compact track loader for the job is vertical lift for truck loading, which requires more reach at full height and for working in a wide range of material handling applications.”
