New to North America and the smallest machine in its line, the EC20 compact excavator weighs 4,277 pounds with cab. It is powered by a 16.2-horsepower Volvo three-cylinder Tier 4 engine with auto engine shutdown feature. Sporting the Volvo Care Cab, it offers a spacious operating environment and new electro-proportional fingertip control on the joystick that allows swing and offset movement at the same time. Maximum dig depth is 8 feet 4 inches, and the unit’s tail swing is 7 percent less than its predecessor.
