Chepstow’s bulk Volvo order includes 51-tonne shovel

Chepstow’s order includes 20 excavators, ranging from the 25-tonne EC250E to the 75-tonne, and 25 wheeled loaders from the L70H up to the top-of-the-range L350H, which has been bought specifically for a major contract in the northeast of England.

The L350H has a 6.8m³ spade nosed rock bucket with teeth and segments plus additional wear parts, 875/65 wide profile Goodyear L5 wheel and tyre assemblies, and the long boom option. Thus rigged, the 51-tonne loader offers a full turn tip load of 32.8 tonnes, a breakout force of 376kN and a dump clearance height of 3.63 metres.

The rest of the order is for 58 articulated haulers, of which nearly half are the 30-tonne A30G model.
