Volvo Construction Equipment: EC340D, EC380D and EC480D tracked excavators

By |  January 3, 2013

Volvo Construction Equipment’s Tier 4 Interim-certified EC340D, EC380D and EC480D tracked excavators range in weight between 75,000 and 111,800 lbs. At the heart of these machines is a turbocharged, high-pressure, direct-injection Volvo diesel engine that offers maximum power of 279 hp on the EC340D and EC380D, and 343 hp on the EC480D, respectively. All three machines feature an automatic idling system that reduces engine speed when levers and pedals are not activated, aiding fuel efficiency and lowering external noise. When only a single function is being used, the two-pump hydraulics system combines the flow of both pumps for quick cycle times and greater productivity. It can also prioritize flow according to the boom for a faster rising when loading or in deep excavations, or to the arm during leveling duties.
