Excavator takes to golf like a pro

The coveted hole-in-one — a challenge not for the faint-hearted. Only a skilled operator and a reliable machine could pull off this precision drive.

The Volvo EW180D-Series excavator swings it.

Every golf club has one. The impressive newcomer, who talks a good game and has all the equipment to match. They measure up, and with a flash of metal they produce a winning swing. They handle the clubs like a pro — and it’s the crème de la crème that have a caddy to boot.

This was the case when a Volvo EW180D wheeled excavator surprised golfers and stopped by to give the professionals a quick lesson in precision putting.

10 stops. 10 challenges.

Volvo Ocean Race is one of the toughest offshore races on earth. So for every stopover, Volvo CE is undertaking an exacting challenge of its own. To celebrate the fourth leg of the race, a Volvo EW180D wheeled excavator took to the fairway, while a Volvo ECR25D compact excavator accompanied as caddy.
