Volvo’s new EC200D ex­ca­va­tor is gain­ing mo­men­tum with in­creased orders and buzz gen­er­ated from pos­i­tive cus­tomer feed­back, says the com­pany. With high swing torque and low cy­cle time, it’s the fastest ma­chine in the 20-ton ex­ca­va­tor class, says Volvo.

Cus­tomers in In­dia, from in­di­vid­ual op­er­a­tors to deal­ers and rental com­pa­nies, are rav­ing about the new EC200D, thanks to the ex­ca­va­tor’s high ef­fi­ciency, pro­duc­tiv­ity and ease of use, the com­pany claims.

For­mally launched in In­dia dur­ing EX­CON

2017, the 20-ton ex­ca­va­tor’s high swing torque and lift­ing abil­i­ties help achieve a low cy­cle time dur­ing mass ex­ca­va­tions, which means out­stand­ing pro­duc­tiv­ity for its cus­tomers, it says.

“Many con­struc­tion com­pa­nies as­pire to own­ing a Volvo and with this new EC200D we’re mak­ing it eas­ier than ever for In­dian cus­tomers to add one to their fleet,” says Dim­itrov Kr­ish­nan, vice pres­i­dent and head of Volvo CE In­dia.

“Our ex­pec­ta­tions are high for this new ma­chine given the strong growth de­mand ex­pected in this equip­ment cat­e­gory. 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.”

The EC200D is con­fig­ured with a 5.7m boom, 2.5m arm and 0.92 cu­bic me­tre bucket, with an op­tion of a 2.9m arm and a 0.8 cu­bic me­tre gen­eral pur­pose bucket, along with com­pat­i­ble hy­draulics pro­vid­ing a max­i­mum break­out force of 116kN.

Pow­ered by a Volvo D5E Tier 3 en­gine to pro­vide an out­put of 123kW at 2,000rpm, the EC200D has im­pressed In­dian cus­tomers with its per­for­mance in gen­eral con­struc­tion and road con­struc­tion, earth­works, ma­te­rial han­dling, sand min­ing and ir­ri­gation projects, says Volvo.

To­gether with the sis­ter ma­chine, the EC210D, which was launched in In­dia two years ago,

Volvo CE says that it now of­fers an ex­tremely com­pet­i­tive cus­tomer of­fer­ing in the 20-ton ex­ca­va­tor class.

The EC210D is par­tic­u­larly well-suited to heavy-duty ap­pli­ca­tions such as min­ing, quar­ry­ing and de­mo­li­tion. It can be equipped with ei­ther a top or side mounted Volvo hy­draulic breaker built to break even the most de­mand­ing ma­te­ri­als, de­liv­er­ing con­sis­tent power and high break­ing force.

Since its launch, the EC200D ex­ca­va­tor has gained pos­i­tive feed­back from cus­tomers in the In­dian mar­ket
