“Our machines work 2,000 hours per year and not always on high-rise projects. So being able to switch quickly and easily between standard and high-reach booms is essential to keep things moving on site,” says Tim.
Safety as number 1
Klenck Company currently owns three Volvo EC330B excavators, one Volvo L110E and L60F wheel loader, one Volvo MC135C skid steer loader the latest addition to its fleet, the Volvo EC360C HR ultra high reach demolition excavator.
“We don’t believe in micro-managing on our sites,” says Tim. “But we take safety very seriously and do all that we can to ensure operators are protected.” Klenck Company offers rigorous training and has a full-time safety officer on all of its sites. Operators carry out a hazard analysis before every job and site-specific training. And the company’s Volvo machinery helps to make their work even safer on site thanks to the special safety features built-into the machines.
The Volvo EC360C HR has a frame-mounted falling object guard (FOG) that protects the operator against any errant pieces of falling debris. Other protection includes bolted side-impact protection, heavy-duty double-thickness side doors and bucket and boom cylinder guards help to protect the machine and its operator from all other angles. The sound-dampened cab also protects the operator against hearing damage and enhances comfort.
“Our operators are very happy with the machines,” says Tim. “They often comment on the excellent visibility that Volvo CE machines, in particular, provide – and the additional protection features help to keep our operators safe on site.”
