For most owners, fuel consumption is the number one cost of operating an excavator – even more so than labour, maintenance and insurance – and thus, it offers the greatest opportunity for operational cost reduction.
The new EC750D crawler excavator from Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) has been built to deliver superior productivity and efficiency in a variety of heavy construction applications. It’s equipped with a new Volvo D16 Tier 3 engine, which provides increased horsepower and fuel efficiency ensuring an incredibly low total cost of ownership. This powerful engine works in harmony with an improved, Volvo-designed electro-hydraulic system, which uses intelligent technology to control on-demand flow and reduce internal losses in the hydraulic circuit.
This impressive machine incorporates Volvo’s unique integrated work mode system, through which operators can choose from a range of modes to achieve the best performance form the machine.
When the operator selects the best work mode for the task at hand – I (idle), F (fine), G (General), H (Heavy) and P (Power) – the rpm and hydraulic performance are already set for maximum efficiency. The machine also includes larger buckets for faster and more efficient on-site production.
And then there’s the cab – a comfortable, low noise environment with an adjustable seat to further increase operator comfort and efficiency. Volvo is an industry leader when it comes to cab comfort and safety, and this machine is no exception to that reputation.
Operators have superior visibility from large front and side glass windows, and the slim cab pillars ensure minimal blind spots around the cab. The spacious environment provides ample storage and leg room.
The EC750D is equipped with efficient technology to ensure outstanding digging force in any application. With improved stability, tractive force and Volvo’s unique ECO mode, this machine offers improved cycle times for outstanding performance.
The constant, high system pressure delivers greater digging force and reduces cycle times, particularly when working with hard and heavy materials. For more power, better productivity and increased manoeuvrability, the high system pressure and durable track ensure impressive tractive force when climbing gradients and travelling over unstable ground. A wider track gauge and heavier counterweight make this a well balanced and solid machine when operating in adverse terrains.
The Volvo hydraulic system leads to a powerful combined pump flow to the bucket for smooth operation, improved cycle time and increased fuel efficiency. The optional boom float delivers more control, minimises operation costs and maximises uptime.
In addition, the ECO Mode optimises this hydraulic system to reduce flow and pressure losses. It is automatically selected but can be switched off via the keypad.
STRONG, SOLID AND SUPERIOR
Built with durable Volvo components, a reinforced structure and machine protection, the EC750D has been designed to last.
Robust parts and easy service access increase uptime and keep maintenance to a minimum to reduce operating costs. Volvo’s tried and tested components have proven to be reliable even in the toughest applications, delivering maximum uptime.
The reinforced heavy-duty boom and arm are built from high strength tensile steel to increase reliability, even in severe applications. Steel strips are welded under the arm to further increase protection. The reinforced upper and lower frames are built to withstand tougher conditions for improved durability and reliability. The strengthened idler frame, track links and bottom rollers are designed and built for constant impact.
Built-in heavy-duty plates provide additional protection to the underside of the machine to prevent damage from rocks and debris.
Grouped filters and an electric distribution box are easily accessed via the wide-opening compartment doors and walkways.
Greasing points can be accessed in one machine position and the EC750D’s design facilitates easy cleaning, inspection and maintenance for increased uptime.
STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
To ensure increased productivity and profitability, the EC750D works in harmony with a range of Volvo buckets and attachments.
Volvo offers a Universal quick coupler, which perfectly matches Volvo’s bucket range. The quick coupler also picks up a variety of attachments from various manufacturers and the Volvo front-pin lock quick coupler meets the latest safety regulations.
The machine is also equipped with a password-protected attachment management system, allowing for storage of up to 20 different attachments. The system allows the operator to pre-set hydraulic flow and pressure inside the cab through the monitor, which ensures the use of various attachments for increased versatility.
A wide range of Genuine Volvo wear parts are offered with the machine to protect the entire bucket, including teeth, adapter, segments, side cutter and shroud.
