Volvo CE launches
100t rigid hauler
The HUB recently spent a great day at the Terex Trucks factory and both of us had the chance to test drive the truck – fabulous !
The brand new 95-tonne (100-ton) R100E from Volvo Construction Equipment is set to be a heavy hitter in mining and quarrying sectors, putting low total cost of ownership at the forefront of its design.
With a size and capacity that makes it easily the largest hauler in the company’s line up, the new R100E rigid hauler from Volvo Construction Equipment promises to drive down operating costs for customers by optimising productivity, uptime and operator comfort.
This groundbreaking model is built on strong DNA, with roots tracing as far back as 1919. For nearly 70 years, the Volvo CE Motherwell facility has designed, manufactured and distributed rigid haulers. Built from nearly a century of engineering excellence, no other machine can compare to the R100E.
Move more, earn more
Offering a true 100ton/95-tonne payload, the newest star in the Volvo fleet allows operators to meet production targets faster. Built to perform, the R100E is powered by the premium 783 kW (1075 hp) engine. The combined drivetrain delivers high torque capabilities, unparalleled pulling performance and class-leading rimpull, for optimum traction. Drivetrain control and machine momentum are supplied by the new Volvo Dynamic Shift Control, which automatically tailors the transmission shift-points depending on the worksite and operational inputs.
The R100E is built for all surface mining and quarrying applications, where operational costs are critical. Customers can expect to spend less per haul with the R100E, featuring a 60.4m3 capacity V-shaped body for optimum load retention and minimal material carry-back. The industry-recognised load profile policy enables the operator to meet a consistent average target payload (95-tonne), while the speedy body- tipping system ensures fast cycle times for an all-round efficient performance. > July 2018 - Issue 51
