DOING MORE FOR YOU
Volvo’s EC250E/EC300E Stage V crawler excavators are powerful and efficient machines designed to reduce fuel consumption and increase your productivity. With advanced technology the machines deliver a significant improvement in fuel efficiency saving your business time and cost. Put your mind at ease with a Volvo excavator.
Automatic idling system
Engine speed is reduced to idle when the controls are inactive for a pre-set amount of time (between 3 and 20 seconds) which reduces fuel consumption and noise for nearby workers.
Volvo’s integrated work mode system now includes the G4 mode for optimum fuel efficiency and machine performance. You can choose the best work mode for the task at hand – select from I (Idle) F (Fine) G (General) H (Heavy) and P (Power max).
Eco-gauge is an added gauge bar that indicates momentary fuel consumption and can be reset through the display monitor. This will track fuel consumption under different applications.
AUTO-ENGINE SHUT DOWN
E-Series excavators feature automatic engine shutdown for when the machine is not being used. When the machine is motionless for five minutes the engine will automatically turn off and reduce your running costs.
PROPORTIONAL TWO-PUMP FLOW
Experienced and skilled Volvo engineers have developed and rigorously tested Stage IV/Tier 4 Final engine systems that deliver the ultimate combination of high productivity and low fuel consumption. Benefit from Volvo’s signature high torque at low rpm and experience superior performance and reduced fuel consumption.
ATTACHMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The attachment management system – controlled through the monitor – stores the settings for up to 20 different hydraulic attachments for ease of operation. Depending on the options configured the management system can store rated flow and relieve pressure.
POSITIVE CONTROL HYDRAULICS + PUMP INPUT TORQUE
High pump flow combined with the electro-hydraulic control system creates a faster response and cycle time. In addition the EC300E features increased pump input torque for a reduced cycle time.
V-ACT (ENGINE AND PUMPS ARE MATCHED TO OPTIMISE PERFORMANCE)
It’s the combination of the durable D8 Volvo engine and intelligent hydraulic system that makes all the difference. Boosting power while reducing both fuel consumption and emissions results in quicker cycle times and greater productivity.
With the boom float function the pump power for boom lowering can be saved or used for other functions reducing your cycle time. Also the grading operation can be made easier.
