Artic haulers designed for continuous production

The range – comprising the A25G, A30G, A35G, A40G, A45G FS and the new 41-tonne class A45G – matches long service life with quality, reliability and durability, making hauling easier and more efficient.

The G-Series has been engineered to increase uptime, thanks to heavy-duty front and rear frames, hitch and wet disc brakes. The G-Series benefits from Volvo’s proven durability and the support of an extensive array of maintenance options, meaning users never need to worry about getting the job done.

Volvo CE has come a long way since its original 10-tonne articulated hauler was launched in 1966. The G-Series is the culmination of 50 years of trusted engineering and innovation. The company was the first to commercialise the concept and today it is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of the articulated hauler.

The G-Series is engineered to help improve efficiency and move more for less. Fuel efficiency, innovative technology and useful operational data tools all help to control maintenance costs and maximise the total cost of ownership.

Powered by the renowned Volvo Tier 4 Final/Stage IV engines, which range from 234kW on the A25G to 347kW on the A45G, the G-Series provides significant improvements in fuel economy without compromising on power or performance.

The engine’s lower idle speed delivers an additional fuel saving. Each machine is optimised for fuel efficiency relative to its individual payload capabilities.

Dynamic and predictive gear selection adjusts to operating conditions for improved comfort and fuel efficiency.

During operation, valuable data is available to improve on-site efficiency and reduce costs. With intelligent systems such as MATRIS, CareTrack and the On Board Weighing system, production can be optimised and operational costs reduced. The On Board Weighing System gives the optimal load every cycle.

Added to that, an array of customer support agreements offers preventative maintenance, total repairs and a number of uptime services, allowing complete control of maintenance costs.

The Volvo articulated hauler concept provides versatility, so the entire jobsite can be accessed and steeper gradients climbed.

Able to work in all seasons, terrains and applications, several body building and chassis options are available. The G-Series’s off-road performance is attributed to the matched Volvo drivetrain, Automatic Traction Control, including 100 per cent differential locks, all terrain bogie and hydro-mechanical steering.

The haulers are just as surefooted going downhill, with retarders and the Dynamic Volvo Engine Brake ensuring safety and productivity are maintained. The G-Series’ dump support system and load and dump brake also help operators stay in control at all times, for extra productivity and safety.

The G-Series cabs provide a spacious and comfortable work environment and feature advanced steering, full-bodied suspension, low noise levels, climate control, space and visibility. The ergonomic, comfortable controls are also easy to understand, combined with automatic functions for increased ease of operation.

The G-Series hauler’s accessibility also makes it quick and easy to maintain. The front grill swings down, becoming a service platform with anti-slip steps. The electric hood opens to 90 degrees, allowing full and safe access to the engine compartment.

In Australia, Volvo CE earthmoving plant and equipment is available through CJD Equipment’s dealer network.
