Volvo Construction Equipment expands load assist features for wheel loaders
Volvo Construction Equipment has launched new functions on its wheel loader productivity software, Load Assist. The updates include new modes within the On-Board Weighing app, the Operator Coaching Advanced app and Quick Tips.
“These enhancements will help operators get even more from their Volvo wheel loader, and they add to the existing core functionality of Load Assist, which 10,000 operators have benefitted from to date,” said Eric Yeomans, product manager, wheel loaders at Volvo CE. “We are continuously evolving our Assist programs, and customers can expect further upgrades in the future.”
Another new feature of On-Board Weighing is Low Load Mode, which allows operators to weigh lighter materials and loads than with previous iterations.
Operator Coaching, Leveled Up
Another new feature of the advanced package is Operator Tips. This provides feedback at the end of a shift, including a QR code that links to a relevant instructional video on anything that can be improved.
Quick Tips is another new tool that shows messages on how to use specific apps and functions found within the Volvo Co-Pilot display.
Expanded TPMS Availability
The tire pressure monitoring system, introduced in 2020 on Volvo L110H to L350H wheel loaders, is now available for the L60H, L70H and L90H models. This system allows the operator to easily check the condition of the tires from the comfort of the cab.
With real-time information on tire pressure and temperature, the operator can ensure that tires are operating within the correct parameters. If not, the operator receives an alert and visual display showing which tire needs attention. The integrated system saves time during machine inspections while also helping to secure the highest levels of tire life, fuel efficiency, machine performance and operator comfort.
