VOlvo Mini Digger for saleThis dedication to durability can also be seen in the offset roller guides and thick tracks that also deliver a smoother ride. These wider and longer tracks also make for a longer component life, and they contribute to a greater ability to tackle the roughest terrain. The dipper is made from the toughest steel and has steel castings to reduce stress points to a minimum. All of the hydraulic lines, along with the pins and fasteners, are plated to protect against corrosion. The picture of robust construction is completed with the friction-welded and cast swing post cylinders.

Built to Last

While the brute force of Volvo compact excavators can be seen in the tough steel construction, every operator knows that even the biggest and hardiest machines can be brought to a standstill by a simple electrical fault. That is why the Volvo compact excavators have the highest-quality electrical components, complete with snap-together waterproof connections, and a plastic cover protects the wire harnesses from the elements and any impact damage. The hydraulic connectors on the boom and arm are also protected from front and side impacts, while the engine covering is proofed against corrosion and is shock-resistant.

Straightforward Maintenance

Maintenance is a given in plant ownership, and that is why Volvo has done everything possible to keep it simple and quick. All of the key service points are to be found grouped together in easy-to-reach places, while the service areas open wide for easy access and working. Downtime is the enemy of profitability, so Volvo has extended service intervals as much as possible and has made sure that workshop time is kept to a minimum by making service operations easier. Certain models, such as the EC278C and EC35C, also feature a side-mounted engine for even easier access.

Safety in Operation

Volvo is a company known for its dedication to safety, and the range of Volvo compact excavators embodies this. There is a counterweight on the short swing radius ECR models that operates within the gauge of the tracks to avoid collisions with other site traffic. All Volvo compact excavators' cabs and canopies have full certification of their FOPS/ROPS and TOPS safety systems. The machines also feature a cut-out which disables hydraulic and drive functions when the operator leaves the cab. With this combination of safety and productivity, Volvo compact excavators really deliver.
