Volvo CE Brings 100-Ton Class Rigid Hauler to North America


Volvo Construction Equipment is launching its 105-US short ton (95 tonne) R100E rigid in North America, with Tier 4 Final certified engine and proven Volvo technologies to increase production.

The new R100E rigid hauler from Volvo Construction Equipment promises to drive down operating costs for customers by boosting productivity, uptime and operator comfort.

The R100E is powered by a premium 783 kW Tier 4 Final engine, with a combined drivetrain to provide high torque capabilities, unparalleled pulling performance and class-leading rimpull for optimum travel times.

Drivetrain control and machine movement are supplied by the new Volvo Dynamic Shift Control, which automatically tailors the transmission shift-points depending on the worksite and operational inputs.

Customers can expect to spend less per haul with the R100E, featuring a 79 yd3 (60.4 m3) capacity V-shaped body for optimum load retention and minimal material carry-back. The load profile policy enables the operator to meet a consistent average target payload, while the body-tipping system ensures fast cycle times for an all-round efficient performance. The Tier 4 Final R100E includes a manually-activated ECO mode for long distance hauls and high-speed applications.

The R100E is configured with the Volvo CareTrack telematics system to monitor operational data including fuel consumption, machine utilization and excessive idling reports.

The machine’s durable design centeres on uptime and productivity, which promotes high component protection and longer lifecycles, for extended intervals between planned maintenance.

With a body manufactured from high impact and high abrasion-resistant 400-HBW-hard steel the R100E rigid hauler achieves long-lasting performance.

The R100E also brings operator productivity and safety to the forefront. Offering reduced vibrations and exterior noise, the cab is fitted onto viscous-type isolation mounts for greater ride quality.

The operator can observe the job site and surrounding areas through the large glass area and a low rake windscreen. Good visibility is complemented by a 360° surround view system provided by Volvo Smart View. The system uses multiple ultra-wide angle exterior-mounted cameras to produce a bird’s-eye-view of the vehicle and surrounding work area via the on-board display.

The transmission retarder and neutral coast inhibitor secure safe machine control in downhill conditions, while the engine overspeed protection automatically slows the machine down to safe operating limits.

Packed with durable features that provide superior protection, the R100E optimizes operations and extends maintenance intervals for lower operational costs.

The R100E makes accessing daily service checks and routine maintenance quick and easy with anti-slip steps and secure walkways. All service points are strategically grouped and located within reach from the ground and service platform, while the direct rim-mounted wheel design promotes safe and quick installation and removal.

The R100E features a high degree of filtration for better performance and to prolong component life. Each functional system on the hydraulics has magnetic suction filters, as well as a pressure filtration on the steering, brake actuation pump and rear brake cooling units. The engine-mounted primary and secondary fuel filters combine with the advanced two stage oil filtration to remove harmful contaminates.
