Poses well.

The Volvo L350H is a wheel loader with an operating weight of between 50 to 56 tonnes, depending on configuration.  In this model configuration it is fitted with a spade nose rock bucket.

This model is an update on the previous L350F version by Motorart.


The packaging is in the Volvo corporate branding with a window allowing the model to be seen.  The model is contained between a pair of clear plastic formers. 

There were no missing parts on the review model.  The beacon light was detached in the box, but was easliy refixed.

There is no information about the real machine or model included.


Underneath, the transmission is modelled fairly simply , with no drive shafts visible and unusual half-formed differentials.  The rubber tyres are good and the wheel detailing is also good although only on the outer faces, with the internal faces being hollow.

At the rear the the counterweight has painted lights and tiny warning graphics and the Volvo badge is very sharp. The engine area is revised on this model and the side grilles are textured.  Underneath the covers there is a detailed plastic engine with different coloured components.

Textured walkways lead to the cab and the handrails are metal, as are the mirrors and very thin grab rails. The interior detail of the cab is good.

Under the cab a front axle drive shaft crosses the pivot point together with hydraulic hoses, and some thin pipework is highlighted

At the front the loader arms have discrete connections and there are large hoses running to the tilt cylinder. 

The metal spade nose rock bucket is very good with well-defined teeth and wear plates and a see-through grille at the top.


The wheels roll easily. The rear axle has a moderate amount of oscillation. 

Steering across the pivot point is fairly shallow possibly because the pistons are too long or the jackets too short.

The loader mechanism raises to a very good height and the rams are stiff enough to hold a pose.  The bucket can hold a reasonable carry angle when lowered, and at the top the tipping angle is very good.

The engine covers on both sides open but one side of the review model was loose so it would not easily pose in the open position. 


The model has a high metal content and it feels well made.

The paintwork and graphics are very good. 


The model is fully priced.


This is a modest update of the previous version and brings it up to date with the latest Volvo machine.  Some of the functionality has been improved.


The model became available from Q4 2019 onwards.
