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.
Weighing 2.5 tons, the Volvo ECR25D excavator produces a greater combination of breakout and tearout forces than its 2.8-ton predecessor
Volvo has introduced two short-swing radius excavators, the ECR58D and ECR88D, with Tier 4-Final engines.
