Volvo demonstrates its commitment to the demolition sector with introduction of its EC360CHR ultra high reach demolition excavator with nearly 70 feet of reach joining the 106-foot EC700BHR. A 90-foot EC460CHR is to be introduced. A hydraulic, modular joint enables a 30-minute change from demolition to standard backhoe attachment. The high-reach machines come with both demolition and digging boom and arm, with transportation cradles for each. Hydraulically tilting cabs with up to 30-degree tilt are standard. Extendable undercarriage expands the excavator’s footprint by 3.3 feet is optional. A Total Moment Indicator warns operators if the machine approaches maximum permissible working load.
