With revolutionary technology the MW500 is a leader in a compact format. Engineered and built with the quality and safety you have come to expect from a Volvo.
Top features of the Volvo MW500:
The MW500 has a 156 gal. polyurethane dual water fill water tank. The dual water fill ports eliminate the need to turn the machine or the water truck around for access. A built-in steel water strainer prevents large materials from entering the water tank. The spray bar located in the drum housing cools and cleans teeth as well as reduces dust emissions.
Packed with safety features, the MW500 comes with a backup alarm, horn, and adjustable beacon on the operator platform, along with three mirrors and three emergency stop switches. A floor switch prevents the machine from proceeding without an operator on the platform.
The MW500 features an ergonomic operator station with a fully adjustable control panel and steering wheel column. The drive lever pivots up 30° for comfortable operation in standing, sitting, or crouching positions. Joysticks are easily accessible, and the whole platform provides a 360° view of the working area and excellent visibility to the cutting area.
The MW500 conveyor is adjustable four ways: up, down, and 25° to each side. Employing a box-type design with canvas covers, the conveyor also features underside wheels to prevent material sticking. When the right rear leg is swivelled inboard, conveyor swing is limited. An optional package includes a quick-disconnect feature and a hydraulically raised rear mold board.
