Volvo Construction Equipment launched new functions on Load Assist, a suite of wheel loader productivity apps, operated by the Volvo Co-Pilot in-cab display. 

“These enhancements will help operators get even more from their Volvo wheel loader, and they add to the existing core functionality of Load Assist, which 10,000 operators have benefitted from to date,” said Eric Yeomans, product manager, wheel loaders at Volvo CE. 

Updates include new modes within one of the most-popular apps, On-Board Weighing, which provides real-time insight into the bucket’s load within +/-1-percent accuracy. 

The new Simple Mode limits On-Board Weighing to three core functions: viewing the current load in trip mode, viewing the loaded weight, and printing a simplified receipt. Also, Low Load Mode allows operators to weigh lighter materials and loads than with previous iterations. 

Advanced features of the Operator Coaching app, which helps operators work in a way that delivers optimum results, include two new views. 

Productivity View allows operators to monitor tons moved per gallon, tons moved per hour and fuel consumed per hour. This can be displayed as a total for the entire work shift, including idle time, or only for the active work, and can be broken down according to short cycles or load-and-carry cycles. 

Utilization View displays an overview of the time spent, productivity achieved and fuel consumed during different tasks. 

Another advanced Coaching-app feature, Operator Tips, provides feedback at the end of a shift, including a QR code that links to a relevant instructional video on anything that can be improved. 

The third Load Assist update is Quick Tips, a new tool that shows messages on how to use specific apps and functions found within the Volvo Co-Pilot display. 



ALLU launched the new Raptor Series of high-performance vibratory machines for the American market. 

The vibratory technology provides a greater impact at a lower frequency. This means higher production, reduced wear, and lower operator fatigue. 

Raptor’s versatile, robust and practical design makes it the essential tool for severe dismounting material applications, where the highest productivity, reliability and comfort of working with the excavator are vital. 

“ALLU is delighted to introduce our Raptor Series, providing an extra attachment to bring together our ALLU portfolio for all your job-site needs in the Americas,” said Edgar Chavez, president.

Doosan Infracore North America 


Hyundai Doosan Infracore (HDI) will launch the first Doosan® dozer, the DD100, 9-metric-ton model targeted at the North American market, in the third quarter this year, with hopes of creating synergies with its existing excavator and wheel loader models. 

This new dozer model was the first to be produced through the collaboration of various departments at HDI, including development analysis, market research, competitive benchmarking, validation and pilot vehicle assembly. In addition, purchasing and quality teams investigated parts supply while production teams completed the first production dozer model. 

Expanding the lineup of durable, rugged Doosan construction equipment, the 122-horsepower DD100 delivers powerful pushing performance, fuel efficiency and all-day operator comfort. It’s built for the most demanding conditions and features a dual/single flange-type roller with several track guard options. 

The dozer features the 8-inch Smart Touch display, giving operators complete control from a convenient, easy-to-read touch screen. It also offers superior visibility with minimized front pillars, maximum glass area and a standard rearview camera – plus LED lights and front, rear and side wiper blades. 

Its Doosan engine offers convenient maintenance access points and does not require the use of a diesel particulate filter to meet current emission standards. Doosan DD100 owners can add the 3D Machine Guidance and 3D Machine Control features as an option for greater accuracy and ease of operation. 

In addition, HDI produced two additional pilot machines and shipped them to North America for various performance tests, sales, marketing, and service training. Also, plans for its 13-metric-ton dozer, Doosan DD130, include shipping a pilot machine later this year and starting production, possibly as early as February 2023. UC
