Scott Equipment Company LLC. “In demolition, a lot of it is the same. Same companies. Same equipment. It’s pretty cut and dried, and it’s usually not a pretty thing. But you know how demolition is — she makes it pretty. It’s unique. How else can you say it?”

Her first purchase, just a year ago, was an EC210C. She leased another one about two months later. On order now is an EC210CLD, with Volvo’s full demolition package.
To fit with her branding, Simone painted each machine pink. The reaction, she says, has been amazing. You don’t see a pink
excavator every day. “Just this morning we were tearing down a residential house,” she says. “I had 10 neighbors come out to watch. They were like, ‘You go girl!’ They love it.”
Tank Gillard, Simone’s chief operator, says his Volvo is the best machine he’s run in his 17 years in the business. It’s quiet, he says, and has the requisite speed to keep up with him as he loads debris onto trucks to be hauled away.
On this morning, he was looking at a 1,700-square-foot home, rotted out by termites. It already had been a busy, attention-grabbing morning. Just getting the machine to the site meant passing
by a group of gawking school children, curious about the pink excavator. Sitting in front of the house, Tank was confident.
“Five minutes, it’s done. In five minutes, I’m walking on it,” he says.
That’s because, he says, of the power behind the EC210C. It’s equipped with Volvo’s 147-horsepower D6E engine. During his year
sitting in the cab of his Volvo, Tank has torn down everything from wood-framed houses to concrete-block commercial buildings.
