The seven-ton compact excavator from Volvo Construction Equipment offers class-leading digging capacity, stability, serviceability and operator comfort.

The Volvo EC75D from Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE)’s undercarriage, is wider and longer than those of its competitors, which ensures excellent stability and lifting capacity, together with high ground clearance and an extensive working range. Thanks to its larger size, the EC75D can be used with a bigger bucket than similar machines in the same class, helping to increase productivity.

The boom and arm are made from high strength steel for maximum durability and uptime, and are fixed to the superstructure at the side of the cab for improved stability and visibility of the work area. The superior tractive force of the Volvo EC75D allows it to climb steep gradients with ease and travel over rough terrain. If specified with an optional dozer blade backfilling and landscaping are also made easy. Meanwhile, the balance between the torque and swing speed permits fast and precise placement of the attachment, even when working on a slope.

Safety and control

Volvo’s industry-leading cab offers operators a commanding view of the work area, thanks to large expanses of glass, combined with precise controls that together promote a high degree of safety on the jobsite. For added safety, an alarm sounds to warn bystanders when the machine moves.

The EC75D cab also encourages the operator to work productively, thanks to the spacious and comfortable environment, with easy-to-access controls, an efficient climate control system and vibration-and-noise isolation. A large I-ECU monitor clearly presents machine information and puts the operator firmly in control. The operator and service technician can make quick visual and diagnostic checks, increasing uptime and productivity further.

Servicing made simple

When it comes to servicing the Volvo EC75D, checks and maintenance are easy and quick. The machine features grouped service points and simple access to the engine compartment via the engine hood, which can be opened fully. The front step provides easy access to the main hydraulic check points. Tools and a grease gun can be stored inside a large tool box located on the right front side of the machine. The hydraulic oil level can be seen from inside the cab.
