Volvo EC250D and EC300D excavators have been designed to operate with faster cycle times and greater productivity than previous models.
With this in mind, the machines offer operators a seven to 10 per cent increase in fuel efficiency.
The company’s D7 diesel engine seamlessly integrates with all excavator systems, with the premium, six-cylinder engine delivering high performance and low fuel consumption. Auto engine shutdown, ECO mode and a fuel consumption display all contribute to fuel efficiency.
Volvo incorporates a smart hydraulic system which increases controllability, offering smoother and easier movement when travelling and lifting simultaneously. The harmonised boom and arm movement also works to offer better grading.
To enable a better working environment, the D-series cab comprises a I-ECU monitor for machine status information, a climate control system to set the ideal temperature and a rollover protective structure for increased operator safety.
The easy maintenance design incorporates safe and easy access centralised filters and grouped greasing points. The radiator, charged air cooler and hydraulic oil cooler are situated side by side on a single layer to maximise efficiency, reduce blockages and aid cleaning.
A fully sealed electrical distribution box contains all fuses and relays, working to protect against dirt and moisture for more machine uptime.
