With a variable undercarriage that retracts to less than 1m and expands up to 1.35m, combined with a reduced machine height to less than 2.35m, you can count on the compact excavator to deliver superior performance when working in confined spaces. The machine design ensures that the right frame corner, swing post and cylinder stay within the tracks, resulting in maximum visibility and a reduced risk of machine damage when working alongside obstacles.


Thanks to its optimized weight balance, redesigned undercarriage with longer tracks, automatic two speed travel and large hydraulic pedals, the EC18E will smoothly load on to a trailer. Carry multiple buckets with ease with the Volvo bucket transportation system.


Transportation of the machine is safe and secure, thanks to its light weight and convenient design. With automatic slew lock and four easily accessed large tie-down points on the upper frame, the machine can be safely transported on a small trailer with up to three buckets and a hydraulic breaker, while maintaining a total transport weight of less than 2t.
