From 1997 the C-series wheel loaders were marketed under the Volvo brand and with that the Volvo BM era came to an end. The Volvo D series wheel loaders were not only revolutionary in terms of their performance, comfort, safety, productivity and lower environmental impact, but also for their styling. Apart from an even higher standard of comfort, the operator enjoyed improved safety in the form of the ïCare CabÍ with greater all-round visibility, a lower noise level and enhanced comfort, as well as a better man-machine interface. The greater versatility of the machines also offered the owner the potential of higher profitability. The improved performance of the machines, combined with their lower fuel consumption, contributed to this.
