Volvo Construction Equipment unveils new excavator
“The EC60E fits in a unique size class that balances a compact footprint with impressive power and spacious operator environment,” Volvo Construction Equipment Utility Product Manager John Comrie said. “The machine’s exceptional lifting capacity, coupled with its fuel-saving features and redesigned cab make it a powerful and efficient choice for any job.”
Equipped with a Volvo Tier 4 final engine and adjustable hydraulic flow, the excavator offers a 10 percent increase in swing force and lifting capacity and a 20 percent increase in power — all while boasting an 8 percent improvement in fuel efficiency as compared to the prior series model. With a compact design, heavy-duty arm and offset boom, this versatile and powerful excavator is suitable for any application.
The machine’s highly responsive controls ensure fluid movement throughout each cycle. The auxiliary hydraulic flows, electric dozer blade and boom offset speed can be adjusted by the operator and tailored to three different work response modes — active, normal or soft — to suit the operator’s work style and deliver the proper power for the task at hand. The redesigned, proportional joystick provides better grip and further increases ease of control.
