Volvo adds a third excavator, the EC700CHR, to its line of high-reach demolition machines. The EC700CHR has a 105-foot reach. Operators can change the high-reach boom and arm to a standard backhoe or straight boom configuration in as little as 30 minutes, Volvo says. The EC700CHR has higher main hydraulic pressure and improved hydraulic flow. Maximum pin height is 105 feet 1 inch, and maximum cab tilting angle is 30 degrees.
Extending an industry trend that targets lower-hour users with less expensive, base machines that stay under 75 horsepower to avoid DEF aftertreatment, Caterpillar has introduced the 313F L GC hydraulic excavator, a companion unit to the higher-spec'd 312E L.
The Cat 336F L XE Hybrid hydraulic excavator captures and reuses energy, delivering an estimated fuel savings of up to 20 percent compared with its standard 336 counterpart.
The EC380EHR and EC480EHR high-reach demolition excavators have a sturdy undercarriage and a working range over 360 degrees
The 22-ton EC220E crawler excavator has a 172-horsepower, Tier 4-Final Volvo D6 engine that delivers 5 percent better fuel efficiency compared with the C Series predecessor.
