Volvo EC140D boosts profitability on the jobsite

The new EC140D excavator from Volvo Construction Equipment combines high fuel efficiency, uptime and productivity to become the ultimate earning machine.

The new Volvo EC140D excavator is equipped with a powerful Tier 2-compliant D3.8F engine that works in harmony with the hydraulics to deliver exceptionally low fuel consumption in the 12.8-15.8t weight class. Operators can choose from five intelligent work modes – I (Idle), F (Fine), G (General), H (Heavy), and P (Power Max) – to ensure only the right amount of flow is delivered for the task in hand. Volvo’s popular ECO mode is also included for the first time in this weight class to help reduce consumption even further while still maintaining digging power and swing torque. Automatic engine shutdown is also available as a new option on the EC140D excavator.

In difficult terrain the Volvo EC140D’s long, wide undercarriage and heavy counterweight ensure excellent stability. The durable components also contribute to high machine uptime. Regular service checks can be carried out safely, quickly and easily, thanks to anti-slip plates, ground-level service access and centralized filters and greasing points. These features are a significant help for owners in getting the most of out their machine. So too are the wide range of attachments, which allow the Volvo EC140D to be adapted for almost any crawler excavator application. The Volvo EC140D is compatible with many different bucket, breaker and piping options. A password protected attachment management system, accessed via the monitor inside the cab, allows the operator to configure and store hydraulic flow settings for up to 20 different attachments.

When it comes to getting the most out of the operator, the Volvo EC140D excavator offers among the most comfortable and productive operator environments on the market. The spacious premium cab with the latest styling is equipped with an easy-to-view monitor, adjustable seat and ergonomic controls. A rear-view camera is also available as a new option.
