The new D-Series skid steer loaders and compact track loaders offer more strength, greater capacities, and improved safety and operator comfort.
The D-Series skid steer loaders and compact track loaders include a stronger boom design, backed by Volvo’s lifetime guarantee, that provides up to 11 percent higher lifting capacities over the C-Series. With cabs that offer 30 percent more room and up to 60 percent greater visibility, these machines offer measurable advantages over competitors.
“From the improved boom design to the larger platform, entrance and cab, the D-Series is the culmination of customer feedback, significant research and development, and a great deal of field testing. The end result is an impressive lineup that is among the most productive, durable and safe in the industry,” said Volvo Produce Manager Kevin Scotese.
Strength in numbers
The D-Series is equipped with the next-generation curved single loader arm, built with 20 percent more steel than conventional models, a heavy-duty design, and extra reinforcement to provide more strength and rigidity while efficiently distributing the load. This reduces material loss from the bucket and limits sway in heavy pallet handling applications.
Several of the D-Series models come with significant rated operating capacity (ROC) improvements over their preceding models.
The D-Series machines include a reversible wear plate and fully enclosed attachment bracket that eliminates the need for greasing. The new visual indicator informs the operator when the attachment is locked.
Unrivaled operator environment
The ROPS/FOPS high-spec Volvo cab is the largest on the market with over 30 percent more room than standard skid steers and compact track loaders. The wider side-entry door and new handrails allow operators to enter more safely without stepping over an attachment, and a new cab air vent allows effortless cab door closing.
With the curved single loader arm, large top window, and narrow ROPS cab pillars, operators benefit from 270 degrees of visibility: up to 60 percent more than conventional models featuring the two-arm design. The arm and attachment brackets offer superb forward and side views of the attachment and jobsite.
The redesigned D-Series also features large glass panels and a rearview mirror. Fitted with an adjustable seat, the noise-insulated cab provides generous legroom and storage, an advanced climate-control system, and easy-to-read gauges located in the two ergonomic consoles.
Access to internal components is made easier with the D-Series thanks to the forward-tilting cab, a process one person can perform without the need to raise the arm. For added convenience, all service and maintenance points are arranged in a simple layout and accessible through the large rear door.
Service and support
Customers can benefit from a range of services and support programs. The Volvo Lifetime Frame and Structure Warranty covers the loader boom and arm for the life of the equipment under the initial owner.
