The Volvo EC features a low-emission, fuel-efficient diesel engine. Fuel injectors, turbochargers, coolers and electronic controls are integrated into the electrical unit. Thanks to this, the engineers have been able to optimize the excavator’s performance. The automatic no-load system operates with the levers and pedals in neutral position to reduce engine speed, which saves fuel and minimizes noise in the operator’s cabin.

Thanks to its tracks, the Volvo excavator can work in difficult terrain with loose soil, off and swampy terrain.

The excavator can easily turn on the terrain with difficult terrain, and the turning system allows you to do the work qualitatively, without making unnecessary movements. The equipment is capable of climbing steep slopes without the risk of derailment.

Almost all malfunctions associated with wear and tear can be repaired by contacting a service center or an experienced mechanic. The manufacturer has provided access to the main components of the machine so that routine repair work can be easily performed.

The excavator is characterized by fuel efficiency with high performance, which has been achieved through a new engine, modern hydraulics and built-in ECO mode.

One of the best!

In order to increase productivity and versatility of the excavator it is possible to use special attachments, including buckets:

  • General purpose.
  • For heavy-duty work.
  • For hard rock.
  • Stationary, for making trenches.

The cutting part of the bucket has self-replacing hardened steel teeth that are robust and resistant to wear. The tines can be easily removed, if necessary, thanks to a special adapter. Given the technical features of the machine, you can use it in difficult conditions for tedious work.

The cab has been designed to provide the operator with maximum comfort and an improved view of the accuracy of the articulated tool manipulation. There is an ergonomic seat and climate control inside the cab. To suppress noise and vibration, the cab is equipped with hydraulic supports and sound-absorbing cladding.

The EC 480 has reliable, wear-resistant components and assemblies in the EC 480’s steering mechanism to ensure smooth operation of the EC480DL steering system. Each Volvo 480 crawler starts automatically by shifting the operating hydraulic engine. Caterpillar brakes are triggered by springs and published hydraulics. All components of the undercarriage are securely enclosed by a robust frame.
