See female operator Karin Olsson break the 120 km/h (74 mph) world record with a conventional wheel loader based on original Volvo components. A Volvo wheel loader has articulated steering and normally operates at top speeds of around 46 km/h. This Volvo Construction Equipment loading shovel takes on the highway speed in Sweden of 120 km/h - a world speed record for this type of machine.
The daredevil operator is Karin Olsson, who on a daily basis operates a 30 ton machine in a quarry in the south of Sweden. For her, this is a sports car, weighing in at only 10 ton... Something for V8 Supercars
The Volvo L60G PCP performance machine was developed by Swecon, the Swedish Volvo dealer, together with Volvo Construction Equipment, Bridgestone tires and Volvo Polestar Racing. More info: http://www.fastestloader.com (Swedish only)
