view cameras if required. An ACC system is fi tted as standard. Volvo has also updated the L260H, the next machine down in size from the L350F. Two new buckets have been


introduced, the Volvo Rock bucket and Volvo Rehandling bucket, both specifi cally designed for this model, giving up to a 15% increase in payload. Unlike previous designs, instead of


using a hydraulic pump to lower the boom, it moves down under its own weight, aiding effi ciency. An optional boom suspension system (BBS) is also available, enhancing productivity by up to 20% and reducing spillage when traversing rough ground. To further enhance stability the lift arm has been redesigned and the wheelbase extended by 50mm. Power comes courtesy of Volvo’s D13J engine, rated at 416hp.
