Showcasing a total of 28 machines, including new models and industry-changing concept vehicles, Volvo is offering visitors to CONEXPO-CON/AGG multiple interactive experiences to see how it is pushing boundaries of conventional machine design and technology. Visitors will interact with new intelligent operator systems, machine monitoring technologies, can visit the 3D theater and even pan for gold with the stars of Discovery Channel’s Gold Rush. A range of new technologies and services will be unveiled, the most notable of which are ActiveCare Direct and Dig Assist.
Dig Assist allows the excavator operator to set job parameters, such as target depth and grade; conduct In-Field Design, and view job progress in real time, ensuring the work meets exact specifications. Dig Assist is the latest addition to the suite of Volvo Assist programs — which also includes Compact Assist and Load Assist —providing real-time intelligence to the operator in terms that are easy to understand and directly tied to job quality. Booth visitors will have an opportunity to interact with the Volvo Assist programs on the Volvo Co-Pilot interface — a scalable, Android-powered tablet computer that was recently named as the ’Most Innovative Human-Machine Interface (HMI) Feature’ at the 2016 Car HMI — Europe’s leading human-machine interface event. Booth visitors will also get a glimpse of future Volvo Assist Co-Pilot programs to be rolled out for soil compactors and articulated haulers.
Volvo will be unveiling ActiveCare Direct — believed to be the industry’s first telematics monitoring service offered at the OEM level and supported through the company’s dealer network. Volvo has built an uptime center with an experienced team of analysts capable of proactively monitoring and reporting on customer fleets throughout the United States and Canada. The service relieves the burden of sorting through vast quantities of available data and delivers thoughtful analysis and practical recommendations to the customer. An in-booth uptime center will be available for visitors to interact with telematics experts and see how the system works.
Among the 26 machines on display will be the Volvo A60H, the world’s largest articulated hauler; the EC750E, the latest and largest excavator available from Volvo in North America; never-before-seen wheel loaders; and the HX02, a concept battery-electric, fully autonomous load carrier, making its first public appearance. The show will conclude Volvo’s year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the articulated hauler, showcasing a gold-painted A40G articulated hauler, which will have been recently auctioned at Richie Bros. – with proceeds benefitting SkillsUSA and Skills/Compétences Canada — organizations dedicated to improving the skill level of North America’s workforce.
As one of the latest models in the R2-Series excavator lineup, the Bobcat® E88 delivers durability, performance and quality for more productivity. Technically speaking, it's a compact machine, but it brings big performance with its redesigned engine and optimized lift performance, plus undercarriage and counterweight improvements. All these enhancements make this excavator one of the highest-performing models in its size class. With impressive over-the-side lift capacity, you can dig with greater confidence over the side of the machine. Put it to the test against similar models from other manufacturers. You'll see that the E88 can outwork the competition.
