新EC250Ed EC300E excavators from Volvo Construction Equipment are heavy-duty machines weighing in at 26-31.5t and 30.2-36.8t respectively. Both models are packed with the latest technology, new and proven features, and can even come with purpose-built attachments to help customers move more for less.
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 and high visibility handrails, as well as the 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 three-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. Now getting ready for the working day could not be easier, with customizable settings that include easily choosing preferred control patterns via the monitor and a new ‘long push’ functionality on the joystick allows operators to set an additional shortcut function.
Quality Volvo attachments help owners to get the most out of their machine. Every job is different but with purpose-built attachments – including buckets, breakers and more – operators always have the perfect solution at hand. With the new Steelwrist Auto Connect Quick Coupler, operators can easily connect hydraulic attachments from the comfort of the cab. And thanks to compatibility with Steelwrist, Engcon, Rototilt, SMP and OilQuick tiltrotators, operators can boost productivity and dig at any angle. The factory-fitted tiltrotator preparation system gives operators the power to control both the excavator and tiltrotator using the original joysticks, with the information presented on the main display. The long-term performance of all these attachments has been secured, thanks to a 10% improvement to the hydraulic attachment cooling capacity.
The new D8M Volvo engine builds on generations of proven Volvo engine technology to deliver superior reliability. Service requirements have been reduced with auto engine regeneration and the updated hydraulics make life easier. The new hydraulic system has fewer hoses, which reduces the need for couplings and increases reliability. Time and maintenance costs are further reduced, due to the engine oil and filter change intervals being doubled to 1,000 hours. And when the urea needs topping up, the new splash guard makes filling quicker and easier, while also reducing the risk of spillage and subsequent corrosion.

With better fuel efficiency, faster cycle times, and a full set of features enhancing operator control and performance, the new and improved Volvo EC300E and EC250E help lower operating costs.
