Ninety-tonne Volvo excavator now available worldwide
Volvo EC950F equipped with Stage V engine meets newest international emissions standards
VOLVO Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) are launching the 90-tonne EC950F crawler excavator equipped with a Stage V engine that complies with the newest international emissions standards to meet requests from markets with such engine regulation.
Equipped with a 450kW Volvo D16 engine that delivers high torque at low rev/min, Volvo CE say the machine is designed for fast and efficient production even in the harshest applications.
Volvo’s unique ECO Mode
Helping the EC950F achieve superior fuel efficiency is Volvo ECO Mode, which optimizes the hydraulic system to reduce loss of flow and pressure, while the integrated work mode selector allows operators to choose from I (Idle), F (Fine), G (General), H (Heavy) and P (Power max), to best match the task at hand.
The excavator can be fitted with a range of Volvo attachments, including general-purpose, heavy-duty and extreme-duty buckets. To boost machine versatility, the attachment-management system can store settings for up to 20 different attachments, allowing the operator to pre-set hydraulic flow and pressure through the in-cab monitor.
For optimum control, all machine interfaces – including joysticks, keypad and LCD monitor – are ergonomically positioned. Smart features such as the optional Dig Assist, powered by Volvo Co-Pilot, assist the operator in digging more efficiently.
Operator convenience and safety are enhanced thanks to a large cab entrance, including high-visibility handrails and conveniently positioned steps, as well as anti-slip plates. The optional FOG (falling-object guard) and FOPS (falling-object protective structure) provide further peace of mind when working in tough applications.
For added visibility, the EC950F can be equipped with rear-view and side cameras, or Volvo Smart View, which provides 360° vision.
For a prolonged bucket lifespan, Volvo offer a range of wear parts including segments, side cutters, shrouds, and teeth. When working with heavily compacted material, the Pick Point tooth provides maximum penetration. To cut downtime to a minimum, the new Volvo Tooth System allows teeth changes in minutes.
Essential maintenance points are also easily accessed via the EC950F’s wide-opening and conveniently located compartment doors using central and surrounding walkways.
Volvo also have an expansive portfolio of services designed to complement machine performance and boost profitability. Volvo Active Care – a new service based on the CareTrack telematics system – provides real-time machine monitoring and tailored customer reports. The service is designed to help maximize machine uptime and reduce repair costs by helping take informed preventive maintenance actions.
