Feb. 23, 2023
Operating weight ranges from 75,860 to 78,448 pounds

The EC300E Volvo excavator is a straight-boom, high-reach demolition machine. Operating weight ranges from 75,860 to 78,448 pounds, and gross power is 253 horsepower at 1,600 rpm.

The EC300E Straight Boom crawler excavator is fitted with a 23-foot-long straight boom and purpose-built arm.

The cab is protected against falling debris with a frame-mounted Falling Objects Guard that allows clear views of the worksite. The roof window and front one-piece glass are made from P5A, which is resistant to high impact.

The reinforced frame is made of heavy-duty plate steel with bolt-head protection. There is also heavy-duty undercover protection, a belly guard, and a full track guard. A slew ring cover and heavy-duty side doors with screens and shutters offer added protection.

Standard features include X1 and X3 auxiliary piping, a quick fit and oil drain line, and water lines that are connected to a dust-suppression system that can work in either auto or manual mode.

Lifting Mode for Multi Demolition Boom can simplify transporting equipment to job sites because it allows the excavator to safely lift components such as cradles and booms from the trailer to the ground, at which point they can be safely installed on the machine. Machine software is specifically designed for the controlled lifting of equipment, and visual warnings outside the cab warn bystanders that a lifting process is underway. The software also controls hydraulic pressure and engine speed, ensuring optimum safety throughout.
