The Volvo EC380E straight boom excavator is for demolition and replaces the traditional boom-and-stick approach with a 23-foot straight boom and purpose-built arm. It reaches higher than a standard excavator.
Operating weight ranges from 83,335 to 94,799 pounds, and it is powered by a 308 horsepower engine. Maximum pin reach is 35 feet 6 inches, and it has 44,512 lb.-ft. of breakout force.
The Volvo EC380E cab has a frame-mounted Falling Objects Guard. The roof window and front one-piece glass are made from P5A, which is resistant to high impacts. Standard LED lights sit on both the boom and platform, and additional lighting for the cabin and counterweight are available as options.
An arm-mounted dust-suppression system features a 7.9 gallons-per-minute lifting pump that feeds water to four nozzles that together create a fine mist to contain dust. The system can work in either manual mode or auto mode, where water is only sprayed when the attachment is operating.
A 22,046-pound counterweight is hydraulically removable, and it allows use of heavy tools.
The heavily reinforced main frame of the Volvo EC380E is made of heavy-duty plate steel with bolt-head protection and has heavy-duty undercover protection, a durable belly guard, and a full track guard. A slew ring cover and heavy-duty side doors with screens and louvres offer added protection. The bolt-on Side Impact Protection system protects the superstructure from damage. The machine is further guarded against damage from debris by additional protection on both bucket and boom cylinders. A reversible cooling fan ejects any debris stuck in the radiator, helping to keep the radiator clean and the engine running at optimal temperatures.
