More for less with updated EC250E & EC300E from Volvo

by editor

With fuel efficiency improvement of up to 10 per cent – combined with enhanced performance, control and easy servicing – the EC250E & EC300E from Volvo Construction Equipment are the team players you need.

The new EC250E and EC300E excavators from Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) are heavy-duty machines that weigh 26-31.5 tonne and 30.2-36.8 tonne for the EC250E and EC300E respectively. These enhanced machines are packed with the latest technology, new and proven features, and can even come with purpose-built attachments – to help you move more, for less. Durable by design, these Volvo excavators are safe, comfortable, and reliable members of your fleet.

MORE, MORE, MORE
The updated models deliver up to 10 per cent improvements in fuel efficiency, thanks to a combination of features that includes more intelligent electro-hydraulics, the classic ECO mode and selectable work modes, and finally the new D8M Volvo engine. This upgraded engine reduces rpm from 1,800 down to 1,600, while delivering a 5 per cent increase in power. The EC300E also has a 700 kg heavier counterweight – providing greater stability and a 5 per cent increase in across lifting capacity. Furthermore, both machines have benefited from enhanced performance thanks to new priority functions – which enhanced controllability by allowing operators to prioritise one function, boom/ swing and boom/travel, over another – boom-down speed control – which is adjustable, ideal for precision tasks – and improved jack-up speed.

Operators will benefit from improved response times – thanks to electric control joystick and full electric travel pedals – and are helped in their task by the optional Dig Assist apps – powered by the 10in. Volvo Co-Pilot in-cab tablet. These include 2D, In-Field Design, 3D software packages and On-Board Weighing. Not forgetting Volvo Active Control, which boosts digging accuracy allowing jobs to be completed up to 45 per cent faster, thanks to automated boom and bucket movements. Operators can also easily set swing fence, height limit, and depth limit to avoid contact with side obstacles, overhead obstacles such as power lines, and underground hazards such as pipes and cables.

COMFORT AND SAFETY
When it comes to designing Volvo machines, safety has always been the priority. Renowned features, such as easy access points, bolted anti-slip plates, high visibility handrails and spacious, ergonomic and low-noise Volvo Care Cab ensure the highest level of operator comfort and safety. To access the upper structure, operators can be safe and confident thanks to the new 3-point right-hand side access. Furthermore, rear and side cameras, along with the 360-degree Volvo Smart View option, result in safer machine rotation, especially when working in confined spaces. Operator comfort is always a priority. Volvo has addressed this with new boom and arm bounce reduction technology – which reduces machine shock – and Comfort Drive Control helps reduce fatigue by enabling operators to steer the machine using the joystick rollers instead of the pedals.
