Volvo ECR305C Crawler excavator - Features & benefits

Volvo ECR305C – The new top model in the class of short swing excavators

The Volvo ECR305C overcomes the dynamic challenges of producing excavators that can work in confined areas while offering maximum performance: Not only with its best-in-class lifting capacity but also stability, productivity, ease of operation and safety, this machine sets a new standard in the industry - equal to its "conventional" counterparts.

Key features include:

  • Compact body swings only fractionally outside its own track width - less than 80 mm (with 800mm shoes)  - enabling the machine to work extremely close to objects like walls, road barriers etc. - without risk of collision with the rear of the machine as it swings
  • Fitted with a heavier counterweight and optimum weight distribution: Class-leading short swing radius lifting capacity and stability, swing torque and tractive effort
  • All-new Volvo Care Cab: Despite the design consideration it is the roomiest and most comfortable cab in the market, yet compactly staying inside the counterweight swing radius. The sliding cab door allows easy access and exit, even close to obstructions.
  • Powerful 143 kW (195 hp) Tier 3/Stage IIIA Volvo engine with V-ACT offering high performance, durability and industry-leading fuel efficiency.
  • All service check and cleaning points are readily accessible via wide opening side doors, leading to more uptime for increased productivity.
