Volvo ECR88D Excavators

by eemadmin

In such a broad and competitive market, contending with many manufacturers that focus on a range of small yet durable compact excavators, it takes something extra to stand out against the others. Designed to be highly productive, efficient, durable and cost effective, Volvo mini excavators are multi-purpose tools that deliver great performance on any work site.

Recently released into the Australian market by long-term Volvo Construction Equipment partner, CJD Equipment, the new Volvo ECR88D features the performance, build quality and efficiency we have come to expect from the European market leader.

Featuring a powerful Volvo engine and perfectly matched hydraulic system, this machine delivers high performance, excellent control and low fuel consumption.

Fitted with Volvo’s premium Stage V engine, the Exhaust After Treatment System (EATS) lowers emissions and boasts a regeneration process that does not interrupt operation, performance or productivity. Volvo’s state-of- the-art hydraulic system is perfectly matched to the Volvo engine and components and high system pressure delivers impressive tractive force when climbing gradients or travelling over rough terrain. For improved performance, the ECR88D boasts a 16 per cent improvement in tractive force compared to the previous model.

Design improvements including a counterweight have shifted the centre of gravity towards the rear of the machine. Together with a strong undercarriage, this delivers superior stability while lifting bigger loads. Volvo uses a single pivot design that achieves maximum support between main frame and front equipment, a concept which increases stability, durability and lifetime of the components.

For safe and easy access, all service check points are located under the wide- opening engine hood and are accessed from ground level. Grouped filters ensure regular maintenance is straightforward and uptime is maximised.

Volvo know that when operators are comfortable, they experience less fatigue and work more productively. That’s why the premium, Volvo designed cab is an operator favourite and provides superior visibility, a safe and spacious working environment and easy to access controls. The majority of switches are integrated in one centralised keypad on the right-hand console and the operator can easily control the I-ECU monitor and audio system for increased comfort.

Over the years, Volvo has advanced solutions that have revolutionised the use of construction equipment. No other name speaks Safety louder than Volvo. Protecting operators, those around them and minimising environmental impact are traditional values that continue to shape the Volvo product design philosophy.
