Volvo EW230C Wheeled excavator - Features & benefits

Volvo EW230C – The top class of wheeled excavators

The Volvo EW230C is built around a new, more robust platform, which is designed to ensure the power and stability you need to manage bigger loads, for heavy lifting applications, such as laying large pipe for drainage projects, or hard digging. With its market leading lift capacity, which enables optimum machine performance and productivity, the EW230C sets new standards within the top class of wheeled excavators.

The key features include:

  • Powerful 125 kW (170 metric hp) Volvo Tier III compliant engine with V-ACT (Volvo Advanced Combustion Technology):  high torque at low revs, leading to ultra-efficient fuel consumption.
  • Powerful, harmonized load sensing hydraulics featuring two pumps - one for the attachment and travel and a second, closed-loop slew pump.
  • Rear axle weight is below 12t (when fitted with the standard counterweight) - making it approved for road travel between sites. A heavier counterweight is also available for applications not requiring the machine to be moved on the road.
  • Class leading Volvo Care Cab with operator protective structure, provides increased safety, more space, better visibility and reduced whole body vibration.
  • Rugged long wear components, along with the easy access service walkway behind the cab and the possibility to do daily checks from the cab using the control monitor leads to more uptime.
