Volvo EC140D, EC160D and EC220D excavators are up to 14-percent more fuel-efficient with Tier 4-Interim engines and offer up to 7 percent more gross horsepower. Greased and sealed track chains are standard, and a new rear access located behind the cab of the EC140D and EC160D models allow better reach to the main hydraulic components and engine. Operating modes include I-idle, F-fine, G-general or H-heavy with the machine automatically setting the appropriate engine speed for the work mode. Eco mode is a new feature that works in H or G mode and provides better fuel efficiency without loss of performance in most operating conditions, the company says. The “smart” hydraulics system features improvements that increase total flow and improve cycle times up to 2.5 percent. An attachment management system can store up to 18 pre-sets and enables hydraulic flow to adjust to meet the requirements of the attachment in use. Units come standard with Volvo CareTrack.
Now powered by a Tier 4-Final Volvo D13 engine, the EC380E has a 9 percent improvement in fuel efficiency, according to the company.
The 38,510-pound G946C motor grader is now Tier 4-Final equipped, and features a heavy-duty circle, moldboard and drawbar, with a blade pull at base of 24,957 pounds.
