Volvo expanded its line of high-reach demolition excavators with the EC460CHR, which has an 89-foot-7-inch boom and arm. Users can change from standard configuration to high-reach boom in 30 minutes, the company says. The machine comes with a transportation cradle for both configurations. A modular joint system uses two hydraulically operated pins to quickly change from standard to high-reach. Powered by a 329-horse- power engine, the excavator has an operating weight between 107,730 and 136,160 pounds with a maximum forward reach of 54 feet 6 inches. Engine speed is matched to hydraulic flow for efficiency on combined operations such as lifting and slewing.
The PL4809E pipelayer has a tipping capacity of 242,000 pounds
Specifically designed to fit Volvo L110-L350 wheel loaders, the Volvo Sand bucket, Volvo Rehandling Flat Floor bucket, and Volvo Rehandling bucket enable operators to reduce cycle times through more efficient material handling and increased material capacity—reducing fuel consumption by up to 10 percent, Volvo says—depending on application.
