100-ton-class rigid hauler loaded with Volvo technology for productivity
The R100E will be available in Q4
Volvo Construction Equipment is launching its 105-US short ton (95 tonne) R100E rigid hauler in North America. This model is loaded with Volvo technologies to increase production.
Volvo says that the R100E, which is the largest model in its lineup, is powered by a 783-kW / 1,075-hp Tier 4 Final engine, with a combined drivetrain to provide high-torque capabilities, unparalleled pulling performance and class-leading rimpull for optimum travel times.
The new Volvo Dynamic Shift Control automatically tailors the transmission shift-points depending on the worksite and operational inputs.
The R100E features a 79-cubic-yard-capacity (60.4 cubic metres) V-shaped body for optimum load retention and minimal material carry-back. Volvo says that this body enables the operator to meet a consistent average target payload, while the body-tipping system ensures fast cycle times. Manually activated ECO Mode is included for long distance hauls and high-speed applications.
This rigid hauler features several intelligent monitoring systems.
On-Board Weighing (OBW) is an option that ensures the machine moves the maximum safe payload to further optimize production and minimize operational costs. Exterior-mounted pressure sensors monitor and relay machine statistics to the operator's on-board display.
The Volvo CareTrack telematics system monitors operational data including fuel consumption, machine utilization and excessive idling reports.
Volvo Site Simulation can be accessed with the help of a Volvo dealer. Site Simulation recommends the most profitable fleet of equipment and project results based on customer needs. By using the simulation, customers and dealers can work together to put an equipment plan in place before a project begins.
The view from the cab
The ROPS/FOPS-certified cab also offers reduced vibrations and exterior noise.
In addition to the large glass area and a low rake windscreen, visibility is complemented by Volvo's 360-degree Smart View which uses multiple ultra-wide-angle exterior-mounted cameras to produce a bird's-eye-view of the vehicle and surrounding work area via the on-board display.
All displays and ergonomically positioned fingertip controls are within reach of the fully adjustable Volvo air suspension operator seat.
The transmission retarder and neutral coast inhibitor secure safe machine control in downhill conditions, while the engine overspeed protection automatically slows the machine down to safe operating limits.
Volvo will display a Tier 2 version of the R100E at CONEXPO/CON-AGG in March. The Tier 4 Final model will be commercially available in North America Q4 2020.
