For superior versatility when working in confined spaces, the ECR18E features an ultra-short tail radius. The machine design ensures that the frame corner, swing post and cylinder stay within the tracks when digging alongside obstacles. The result is maximum visibility and a reduced risk of machine damage when working in tight conditions.


The unique high-profile counterweight design is made from three strong pieces of cast iron which wrap around the rear of the machine, protecting all vital components. All-round steel panels, recessed 10mm from the counterweight, offer further protection.



The roomy and uncluttered operator environment of the machine is designed to keep you safe and focused while at work, including simple layout of the controls, fingertip control and large travels pedals. Safety is built-in to the machine with a ROPS/TOPS/FOPS canopy, a large entrance including high visibility step, and an orange seatbelt as standard for easy checks by site managers.


Complete maintenance tasks with speed thanks to the hinged fuel tank which enables an impressive ease of access to the engine compartment, and easy to locate daily check points. A 50-hour greasing interval further contributes towards the best-in-class serviceability of this machine.

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.
