Volvo Construction Equipment has a long history of giving waste and recycling operations the durable, productive equipment they need to get the job done, including wheel loaders, excavators, haul trucks and attachments. At WasteExpo 2018, Volvo will unveil its latest entry to the market: the LC450H landfill compactor.
Volvo partnered with Terra Compactor Wheel to develop the LC450H. The 90,000-pound machine is ideal for mid-size landfills. It is powered by a 416-horsepower Volvo D13J Tier 4 Final engine. Working in cooperation with the engine and the axle is an HTL310 transmission with lock-up converter, delivering high torque output.
“The LC450H is a purpose-built machine fitted with durable wear parts, heavy-duty guarding and efficient powertrain to meet the demands of rugged landfill conditions,” said Mark DeBrosse, Product Manager – Product & Segment Strategy.
Standard features include Terra wheels with a choice of two cleat patterns and three cleat configurations. To prevent material build-up, the wheels are equipped with a weld-on rolling wire guard and 1.25-inch-thick wrapper with horizontal and vertical hard facing on the edges. The LC450H has a tall 26.5-inch ground clearance, higher than competitor compactors.
The LC450H is expected to be available late 2018. Learn more about Volvo’s new entry into the waste and recycling industry at its in-booth unveiling at 11 a.m. Tuesday, April 24.
