Volvo CE de­buts EC200D

Auto components India - - SPECIAL REPORT -

Cel­e­brat­ing 2 decades of its pres­ence in In­dia, Volvo CE took EXCON 2017 to con­duct the world pre­miere of its 20- tonne ex­ca­va­tor EC200D. The new ex­ca­va­tor is pow­ered by Volvo’s D5E en­gine that puts out 123 kW of power @2000 rpm. Con­fig­ured with a 5.7 m boom, 2.9 m arm and 0.8 m3 bucket, EC200D churns out the max­i­mum break­out force is 116 kN.

Ac­cord­ing to the com­pany, with al­most neg­li­gi­ble mar­ket two decades back, the 20-tonne ex­ca­va­tor mar­ket size has grown to al­most 15,000 units in the coun­try. De­signed specif­i­cally to per­form gen­eral con­struc­tion du­ties, EC200D joins the com­pany’s EC210D ex­ca­va­tor which ma­jorly serves heavy duty ap­pli­ca­tions. Com­pany sources claim that with the 20- tonne sec­tor split into two seg­ments, among heavy duty ma­chin­ery and ev­ery­day ro­bust equip­ment, EC 200D will be able to serve the needs of owner op­er­a­tors, con­trac­tors as well as large con­struc­tion com­pa­nies.

Dim­i­tirov Kr­ish­nan, Vice pres­i­dent and head of Volvo CE In­dia feels In­dia’s push to ex­pand con­nec­tiv­ity and de­velop in­fra­struc­ture are ex­pected to re­main in spot­light for some time mov­ing forward. “We’re also ex­pect­ing strong in­ter­est from rental com­pa­nies. The spec­i­fi­ca­tions and de­sign of the EC200D make it a per­fect op­tion for the rental in­dus­try.” he added.
