Motor grader productivity defined
Motor graders are often discussed in terms of weight and
horsepower specifications. These specifications indicate
the size of the machine, but say nothing about grader
productivity. At Volvo, we know that grader productivity is
measured by the work graders do - cutting and pushing.
Grader productivity is not simply a function of weight and
horsepower, but more importantly, where the weight is
placed and how it is applied to the ground.

Wheelbase
Grader capability
Unlike other construction equipment,
the business end of a grader is in the
middle. At Volvo, we build graders
to distribute the weight where it
translates into more cutting capability
at the blade edge. Since the weight of
all motor graders is concentrated at
the back of the machine, Volvo
engineers have moved the blade as far
back toward the rear of the machine
as possible. This takes advantage of
the rear weight, but is still well within
the operator's line of sight. Volvo
recognized the importance of a long
bladebase many years ago and as a
result, our graders offer the highest
cutting capability.
Bladebase

force
Pushing capability
Pushing capability, too, is a function
of weight and where it is placed.
Seventy percent of the grader’s weight
is at the rear. Distribution of that
weight to best apply it to the drive
wheels is critical. By positioning the
powertrain components strategically,
Volvo graders apply more power to
the ground.

front weight x wheelbase
wheelbase – bladebase
Grader Productivity
• Long bladebase for optimum blade
down force.
• Strategic positioning of powertrain
components provides optimal weight
distribution.
The other secret to proper weight
distribution is at the rear of the
machine. By strategically positioning
the powertrain components, we get
even distribution of weight to each
rear driven wheel. This optimizes the
machine's pushing capability.
Blade down force
The calculation of “Blade Down Force”
or cutting capability, identifies two
things as important in determining
cutting capability - front weight and a
long bladebase. Volvo graders combine
lots of weight up front with a long
bladebase to optimize the amount of
machine weight that can be applied to
the ground at the blade edge.

From the ground up
No matter how you use your motor grader, stresses constantly change,
creating spike loads on the frame and front axle well in excess of the total
machine weight. To keep these loads under control, the frame and axle
have to take all these stresses without deflecting or deteriorating. These
stresses can be further increased when the grader articulates for
maximum reach or to cut ditches.
Our front axle design handles these
stresses in three ways. First, we
mount the axle to the machine
securely through the use of an
adjustable heavy duty pivot pin
that is designed to handle any
application imaginable. Next, the
axle frame utilizes an integral box
section weldment that holds the
front and rear axle plates together,
allowing strength and flexibility.
Most importantly, we straddle mount
all pivot areas, cutting the loading at
these pivot points in half.
Frame
Every inch of a grader is
under stress from every
imaginable direction.
So, you need a frame
that can carry the load
while protecting the
powertrain components.
Day in and day out, grader frames
continuously absorb extreme stresses:
in the front frame from heavy drawbar
loads and in the rear frame from side
and rear mounted attachments. The
Volvo frame is unequalled in its ability
to handle these stresses through a
high section modulus, box beam front
frame and a full perimeter rear frame.
The “B” Series front frame is robust
enough to support the circle and
moldboard, even at high speed and
provide a firm foundation for front
attachments.
Loads generated from rear mounted
attachments and the rear drive
wheels place tremendous loads on
the rear frame. The full perimeter

any combination of them literally

Series front axle is built to handle
these huge stresses - even when you
attach a snow plow or dozer blade
up front.

Volvo motor graders

Front axle
An agile grader is a productive grader.
Grader front axles have three ranges
of mobility. These are steering, wheel
lean and axle oscillation. The front

Superior blade control

No other motor grader gives you the blade mobility, stability or reach
of Volvo graders. Three systems – the MBCS (Moveable Blade Control
System), Circle Turn System and Blade Lift System – work together
to help you achieve the required profile and reduce the number of
passes required to handle material accurately and efficiently.
Mobility and stability
The blade mobility system of a motor
grader is one of the most sophisticated
tool mobility systems in construction
equipment design. The Volvo Blade
Control System is designed to offer
superior stability whether cutting,
bank sloping, back sloping or fine
grading, as well as achieving 90/90
and 21º downward positioning on
both sides of the machine. You can
cut a 2:1 bank slope with the
moldboard completely outside the
tire profile.
With its simple seven position
linkage, the “B” Series Moveable
Blade Control System provides the
full 90° left or right blade mobility
from the operator’s seat. This is used
when cutting slopes and cleaning
ditches. The Blade Lift System raises
the moldboard to a full 17.5"
(445 mm) height for travelling.

System controls the rotation of

moldboard to a height of 17.5"
(445 mm) and lowers it to a
maximum cutting depth of

The MBCS gives you the flexibility
to position the blade at any angle
you need for shouldering, slope

This unique system is operated by
two direct-acting hydraulic cylinders,
90° out of phase, acting on teeth cut
on the outside of the circle. The drive
cylinders are controlled through a
distribution valve and protected by a
cushion valve. The Volvo Circle Turn
System design achieves far greater
load handling strength, with fewer
moving parts than worm gear
reduction systems.

Circle turn
This Circle Turn System is
another high performance
innovation from Volvo.
Volvo graders have the industry’s
longest blade reach outside the tire
profile, reducing the number of
passes you need to make, increasing
your productivity.
Duramide™ bearing material
eliminates metal-to-metal contact
and reduces the need for circle
turn lubrication and adjustment.
As well as being simple and costeffective to replace, it has a
minimum service life of more
than 5,000 hours.

A great place to work
A motor grader is only as productive as the operator. For that
reason, Volvo takes pride in providing an operator environment
that is recognized for its comfort and functionality.
In designing the operator environment, we listened to
customers around the world to determine what they need in
order to reduce operator fatigue and increase productivity. The
result is a cab that is quieter and more comfortable, with
excellent climate control, convenient operating controls and
360° visibility.
Superior visibility
Because you operate your grader on
or near public roads, in tight areas and
around other equipment, the sloped
front frame and rear cowling are
designed to open up your line of sight.
The Volvo cab offers a 360° view
around the grader to watch the road
and attachments and a clear view
down to the blade area. This means
an unobstructed view around the
front wheels for accuracy, safety and
high productivity.
Built for productivity
All of the controls are conveniently
located within a 90° arc, either directly
in front of the operator or in the right
hand console. Added touches, like side
and lower front opening windows and
an operator convenience package, put
the operator’s comfort first.
Located forward of the operator are
all hydraulic control levers, as well as
engine oil pressure, coolant temperature
and fuel level gauges, transmission gear
indicator, differential lock/unlock,
hazard lights and others.
In the right hand console you’ll find
the electrical switches, circuit breakers,
climate controls, engine start and the
“Smart Shifter” transmission controller.
All of the controls you need, available
immediately at your right hand.

Contronics – A Volvo exclusive
The nerve centre of the “B” Series
operator environment is the
Contronic Monitoring System.
This multi-function system tells the
operator the status of all machine
functions, including engine RPM,
engine temperature, fuel level,
ground speed, filter restriction,
differential lock/unlock and many
others. Contronics tells the operator
what is happening with the machine
as he operates it.
Using VCADSPro, the service
technician has easy access to the
operating data recorded within
Contronics and can use the
information to diagnose machine
problems and analyze the machine’s
past performance characteristics.
This enables the technician to take
corrective action before a failure or to
diagnose the cause of a failure, should
one occur.
Hydraulics
The “B” Series hydraulic system is
designed to work with you, providing
the responsiveness that every
experienced operator relies on to
work efficiently. At its heart is a
closed center, load sensing axial
piston pump that provides consistent
response regardless of engine RPM.
This provides the right feel at the
controls whether the grader
is doing heavy road work or
fine finish grading.
Safety first
The single most important safety
feature in a motor grader is the
operator’s ability to see over the
noseplate, down to the front wheels,
to the blade/circle system, over the
rear of the machine and to the rear
attachments. Large windows and a
narrow steering pedestal provide a
clear view of the moldboard and areas
forward of the machine. This improved
visibility gives you confidence to
maneuver in congested areas with
greater safety.
A sloped rear cowling provides
excellent visibility to attachments or
when reversing.

A true All Wheel Drive Motor Grader
Volvo All Wheel Drive Motor Graders are like three drive systems in
one – 2, 4 or 6 wheel drive. In 2 wheel drive, only the front wheels are
powered from 0 - 2.0 mph (0 - 3,2 km/h), ideal for slow speed fine grading.
In 4 wheel drive, you have a highly efficient tandem grader. In 6 wheel
drive, you get an extra 8,500 lb (3 855 kg) more blade pull and up to
20.4 mph (32,7 km/h) for operation in poor footing or snow plowing.
to be navigated around the tightest
corners without the rear wheels
“scuffing” the finished grade.
The controls for the AWD System,
consisting of the AWD On/Off
switch, 16 position aggression setting
dial, Creep Mode activation switch
and audible/visual AWD System
Monitoring System, are conveniently
located at the operator’s right hand.
Whatever your application, the Volvo
All Wheel Drive System is tuned to
the task. The system provides an even
distribution of power through
independent variable displacement
pumps and high torque motors at each
front wheel. If the traction differs on
either side, this system ensures that
optimum pulling power is still
achieved.
Leading All Wheel Drive
innovation
Only Volvo AWD graders offer you
the ability to switch to Creep Mode
for low speed, fine grading application.
Creep Mode disengages the rear drive
and pulls the grader in hydrostatic
front wheel drive only. This puts the
power where it needs to be for fine
grading and allows the moldboard
Unbeatable high speed operation
Only G700B All Wheel Drive models
work up to 20.4 mph (32,7 km/h) for
optimum snow clearing performance.
This innovative AWD System is available
in the G726B and G746B graders.
Speed sensors on each front wheel
control the relative front to rear
speeds. The main AWD control
features 16 levels of aggression.
This allows precise matching of
front wheel aggression to tractive
conditions. This means that not only
do the G700B Series Motor Graders
deliver up to 8,500 lb (3 855 kg) more
blade pull to your heavy application,
the slow speed adds extreme precision
to your fine grading applications.

Power and performance
Because motor graders do work at all speeds, in all seasons and dozens
of different applications, the Volvo 700B Series Graders utilize a matched
set of powertrain components delivering the right kind of power and
speed when and where it’s needed.
Fuel efficient Volvo 9,6 litre and 7,1 litre engines are designed to deliver
superior performance and reliability, especially matched to the proven
Volvo 8400 transmission. 4 wheel oil disc brakes and lock/unlock final
drives complete a powertrain package second to none in the industry.
Environmental commitment
Care for the environment has always
been one of the Volvo core values. We
see our commitment as an integral
part of our operation. Not only our
plants, but also our manufacturing
processes are certified in accordance
to ISO 14001. Ninety percent of all
the material in Volvo motor graders is
recyclable. These are a few of the
reasons that tell our customers that
they are getting one of the most
environmentally responsible motor
graders on the market.
Electronic engine control
Volvo engines are excellent for the
type of work graders do; excellent low
end torque to “power through” as load
levels change, superior quietness for
night operation and working in urban
areas, superior fuel efficiency at all load
levels and of course, low emissions.
With variable horsepower, you have
the right power matched to either
low speed or high speed operation automatically.
Volvo graders are equipped with
turbocharged, high performance, low
emission diesel engines, featuring
electronically controlled injection and
intercooler. To ensure that all Volvo
graders lead the industry’s most
18
progressive environmental standards
worldwide, Volvo diesel engine
emissions are fully compliant with
both the U.S. E.P.A. Tier II
requirements and with the equivalent
Stage II standards outlined by
European authorities. Cooling is
thermostatically controlled, with a
variable speed fan that is governed
by cooling demand. This means
optimal use of power and lower
fuel consumption.
shifting, while ensuring that the operator
always has an appropriately matched
forward or reverse gear - automatically,
just by changing direction. And
finally, all Volvo “B” Series Graders
have lock/unlock final drives, 4 wheel
“crossover” oil multi-disc service
brakes, fail-safe braking and spring
applied/hydraulic release park/
emergency brakes as standard
equipment.
Power when you need it
High torque at low engine RPM is the
secret behind the Volvo engine’s high
productivity in grading applications.
The Volvo engine has the ability to
sustain power under load and as
loads change.
The proven 8400 transmission
The Volvo 8400 transmission has been
a proven performer in tens of thousands
of our graders and millions of operating
hours. With 8 forward and 4 reverse
speeds, this fully sequential direct drive
transmission has the right speed for
every operation; with 5 speeds below 11
miles per hour for all grading operations,
a high speed road maintenance gear, a
snow plowing speed and a gear for high
speed roading. The 8400 “Smart Shifter”
provides rapid gear access through pulse
Since the grader's need for cooling
depends on ambient conditions as
well as the engine’s power output,
the variable-speed hydraulically
driven fan on Volvo graders is
designed to respond to actual
demand. Combined with nonstacked coolers, the system
continuously delivers just the
right amount of cooling effort,
consuming less fuel, producing less
noise and maximizing available
power for other grader functions.

Engineered for versatility
Adapting a grader to new tasks
begins long before the attachments
are chosen. Volvo graders are
engineered to simplify installation
and to ensure strength to handle
the varied stresses generated by
all kinds of attachments, front,
rear and mid-mounted. The fullperimeter frame gives attachments
an ideal base for solid support
while isolating drivetrain
components from the excessive
loads of clearing snow, benching,
ripping and scarifying. The proven
box-section front axle design stands
up to the challenges of heavy
pushing and plowing while it
supports complete wheel mobility.
Volvo offers a complete range of
optional hydraulic packages and
each is designed to integrate
attachment controls for your
grader application.
Strength and precision
Many graders that are originally
spec’d out for heavy cutting and
pushing are often assigned to finegrading applications, too. So every
Volvo motor grader is built to
combine the essential power and
responsive controls that allow precise
operation in any application. For slow
fine work, the high torque engine
delivers consistent power at low RPM
while the large-displacement pump
ensures that flow capacity is available
for multi-function operation.
Together, these provide the precise
response ensuring effective,
consistent moldboard and grade
control. Mounting brackets and a
pre-engineered interface simplify
installation of automated blade
control systems as original
equipment or as retrofits.
Engineered for versatility, your
grader is fully equipped to
accept a wide range of Volvobuilt or Volvo-compliant
attachments to maximize
utilization of your equipment on
every job site.
