Volvo’s Formidable Excavator Range
Was there ever a machine more adaptable, scalable, or shape-shifting than the excavator?
Here we look at the versatility behind a selection of Volvo Construction Equipment’s mighty machines.
The Mini One
Designed to be highly productive, efficient, durable and cost-effective, the Volvo mini excavators are multi-purpose tools that deliver great performance. Small yet powerful, these compact excavators are built to deliver superior performance that lasts. Equipped with a tough rear counterweight and casted digging equipment to ensure maximum durability for a long machine life, Volvo compact excavators are designed to work for longer with fully protected hydraulics and a strong, reinforced dozer blade.
The One With The Small Bum With powerful, fuel-efficient Volvo engines, a perfectly matched hydraulic system and a robust body, the Volvo short-swing radius excavators offer remarkable productivity, stability, ease-of-use, and safety when working in confined or restricted conditions. Available in both compact (1.8 to 8 tonne) and general purpose (14 to 30 tonne) getting around the site on these versatile machines has never been easier thanks to automatic two-speed travel for optimised traction, as well as hydraulic travel pedals for easy and accurate track control.
The One With A ‘Higher’ Purpose
To provide the most versatile machine possible on demolition job sites, the Volvo EC480EHR reaches a lofty 28m.
Purpose-built to suit the needs of heavy-duty demolition with both high reach/medium reach and digging capabilities rolled into one, the highlight of the EC480EHR is the patented modular boom system, which includes an innovative hydraulic modular joint with hydraulic lock mechanism to release digging equipment and change from the high reach demolition boom to a medium reach configuration in a simple and swift operation.
The Heavyweight One
With a knockout bucket breakout force of 478kN (ISO 6015) and an arm tear out the force of 420kN (ISO 6015), the 90-tonne class EC950E is the Muhammad Ali of excavators, offering superior digging force, particularly when working with hard and heavy materials.
Constant high hydraulic pressure delivers power to the machine when needed. Built with protected components, including a heavy-duty boom and arm, and a strong frame structure, the EC950E is no pushover and can be relied on for longevity and sustained uptime in demanding applications.
