Volvo Construction Equipment updated its L30 and L35 compact wheel loaders.

These compact wheel loaders meet the needs of contractors looking for 1.3 to 1.6 yd3 (1.0 to 1.2 m3) bucket capacity or 2.4- to 2.6-ton fork payload.

“These improvements set a new standard for compact loaders in this size class,” said Darren Ashton, product manager, compact equipment, Volvo CE. “For customers who demand efficient handling in a small package, this is it.”

Operator Experience

In addition to their visibility, these updated compact wheel loaders provide a great range of sight to the front and sides, thanks to a slimmer dashboard. Operators can access intuitive functions with a larger display that’s navigated via a jog wheel and a multifunction joystick.

A new feature available in this size class is a boom kickout and bucket leveler option with boundary limits that can automatically lift and tilt the bucket to preprogrammed positions. Not only does this help experienced operators with repetitive movements, but it also helps less experienced operators carry out loading cycles.

An electro-hydraulic main control valve supports flow sharing among the hydraulic functions. The adjustable boom and tilt function (optional) allows the operator to set the flow of these functions using the jog wheel and display. This enables customized flows for specialty buckets or attachments. Independent hydraulic pumps provide simultaneous lifting and steering at speed.

A change for the new L30 and L35 is the addition of an eight-pin harness on the boom, which can be activated by a button on the joystick. This allows a range of attachments to be used without installing additional wiring.

The models are equipped with an adjustable steering column, seat and right armrest. The repositioned wheel chocks are now further away from the steps for access.


The new-generation L30 and L35 come with additional sensors to monitor their engine and cooling performance. The standard reversible cooling fan is adjustable to handle dusty and high debris conditions. The operator is informed of deviations in machine behavior, supporting reliability.

Two features remain from the last series: ground-level access to service points, including fuel, oil, air and hydraulic filters, battery, radiator, oil dipstick and hydraulic oil level gauges, and long service intervals.

The loaders offer the same performance, speed and versatility their previous versions provided. This is largely due to the rim pull and breakout/lifting forces. High traction comes from the combination of an articulating oscillating joint and 100% differential locks on both axles, while the high breakout force is a result of the powerful linkage.

With CareTrack telematics, customers can see trends in the operation of their L30 or L35 to help plan maintenance.
