The 60 ton class A60H Articulated Hauler from Volvo Construction Equipment provides continuous production and superb reliability thanks to its robust design, easy service access and outstanding Volvo dealer network. CJD Equipment is bringing this machine downunder.
The new A60H is Volvo Construction Equipment’s largest Articulated Hauler to date. First released at the 2016 Bauma Exhibition, the hauler was the star of the show for Volvo and marked a significant milestone in the industry. This is the 50th anniversary of the Articulated Hauler, a concept Volvo invented, and since then it has led the industry for 50 years.
Designed for heavy hauling in severe off-road operations, including quarries, open-cut mines and large earth-moving operations, the A60H’s long service life, quality, reliability and durability are everything you’d expect from a Volvo.
MOVING MORE WITH LESS
Every cent counts when it comes to fuel efficiency, and CJD Equipment says Volvo’s heavy investment into research and innovation in this area are reflected in their products. The modern design and powerful 16-litre Volvo engine of the A60H increases the machine’s capacity while improving fuel efficiency, so more can be moved for less.
With built-in systems such as MATRIS™, CareTrack™ and the On Board Weighing system, site production is optimised whilst reducing operational expenses. Using the latest technology, the machine’s operational data can be analysed, advising on the best ways to increase profitability in all site conditions and operations. The On Board Weighing System guarantees the optimal load every cycle – maximising production, further increasing fuel efficiency and reducing the machine’s wear.
Servicing the A60H is made quick and easy, with a front grill that swings down, acting as a service platform with anti-slip steps. The electric hood opens to 90° allowing full and safe access to the engine compartment.
SMASH PRODUCTIVITY TARGETS
The A60H has a bigger payload and can deliver up to 40 per cent more productivity than Volvo’s previous largest hauler. “This is especially important for mining, quarry and our heavy construction customers,” says CJD Equipment. It also embodies the full articulated hauler concept, providing total versatility so customers can access the entire jobsite and climb steeper gradients. It can work in all seasons, terrains and applications using tailored machine configurations and tyres, all optimised for this 60 ton machine.
With matched drivetrain, automatic drive combinations, including 100 per cent differential locks, all terrain bogie, hydro mechanical steering and active suspension, this machine is set to make tracks in the Australian earthmoving industry. Fitted with an active hydraulic front suspension for higher hauling speeds in tough conditions, the A60H optimises operator comfort and stability during travel, allowing more material to be moved in a shorter amount of time for unmatched productivity.
When other machines are onsite, most operators prefer the Volvo. The centrally positioned seat, superior steering, excellent suspension, low noise levels, climate control, space and visibility all help reduce operator fatigue for more effective operations.
The A60H’s dump support system, Hill Assist and load and dump brake, all help the operator to stay in control at all times, for extra productivity and safety.
A number of safety features such as superior visibility and efficient lighting help to keep the operator and people working around the machine safe in the most demanding working environments – whether it’s the operator, trainers, mechanics or site workers.
CJD’s relationship with Volvo extends more than 23 years. This strategic partnership provides businesses with access to Volvo’s ever expanding line of construction equipment, with machines and features designed specifically to cater to the requirements of each particular industry segment.
CJD Equipment’s dealer network is always there to support Volvo CE customers, with branches located throughout Australia. Together, Volvo and CJD Equipment offer a number of services including telematics machine monitoring and superb parts availability, as well as local knowledge and global experience. All of which optimises productivity, while minimising operational costs.
