The Volvo EW60E is a fitting choice for productive operations

Volvo Construction Equipment’s new EW60E wheeled excavator delivers an outstanding performance and ensures comfortable operation in a range of demanding applications.

The EW60E wheeled excavator from Volvo Construction Equipment is a versatile and powerful machine that can be tailored for any job. Suitable for a wide variety of applications, this machine offers outstanding traction, swing force and lifting capacity for ultimate results. 

Equipped with a powerful Volvo Stage IIIB / Tier 4 final engine and adjustable hydraulic flow, the EW60E features a well-balanced driveline for optimum performance whether working on a jobsite or on the move. An optional fixed boom and offset boom provide outstanding performance in a range of operations from confined jobsites to major construction areas.

For increased controllability, productivity and a comfortable operating experience the EW60E is equipped with responsive controls that ensure fluid movements for greater operator comfort. Four-wheel drive and a top speed of 30kmph guarantee excellent mobility on and off road. The machine can easily be driven between locations, and the front axle locks while working for optimum stability. 

Comfort and convenience

The EW60E features a new generation Volvo Cab that includes 10% more space for comfortable operation. The new cab design creates more room behind the seat, allowing the operator to move more freely. Increased storage space is available for operator comfort and convenience – a phone tray, two power sockets, cup holder and three other large storage areas makes the Volvo cab a more convenient working environment.

The comfortable and adjustable seat ensures the best in operator comfort and the cab’s air conditioning is 10% more efficient, with six adjustable vents that allow for optimal airflow through the cab. 

All-round visibility is improved by a thinner pillar, larger glazed area and enlarged wiper blade. The rear view camera secures a better view for accurate control through the 7" color LCD display, ensuring there are no blind spots even in the most confined working areas.

For easy, intuitive operation, the keypad groups all controls on the right hand side and the 7” color LCD screen displays all machine information for access to functions through its easy to use menus. The hot keys allow the operator to directly access pre-set functions for added convenience. The improved proportional joy stick provides better grip and increases ease of control.

Do more with Volvo

The EW60E is equipped with a number of features combined to increase machine availability and reduce downtime. Ground level service access and convenient greasing points reduce service time and maintenance costs. Service intervals can easily be monitored via the in-cab screen, which shows reminders when maintenance is needed. 

The new Volvo engine and improved hydraulics work together to offer superior fuel efficiency. With the standard auto idle feature – a unique offering from Volvo – the engine stops automatically after a preselected idle time, lowering fuel costs and noise. A stopped hour meter reduces maintenance costs and increases the resale value of the machine.

This excavator is equipped with Volvo MATRIS software that analyzes operator behavior to improve efficiency, boost productivity and reduce fuel and maintenance costs. Volvo also offers the VCADS Pro diagnostic system, making it easy to control the machine.

Adapt with ease

For outstanding versatility, the EW60E can be equipped with a wide range of durable attachments that are suitable for any application including utilities, building, agriculture, landscaping and forestry. These attachments can be easily changed to save time and reduce costs, and the machine’s design, hydraulics, piping and in-cab switches combined with the Volvo attachments range to allow the EW60E to take on a variety of tasks with ease.

The addition of either a mechanical or a hydraulic quick coupler allows attachments to be changed quickly and efficiently. A complete range of buckets from general purpose reinforced buckets to ditching buckets is available, allowing the machine to work on a wide range of applications.

Volvo’s durable hydraulic breakers are fully compatible with the EW60E. The wide range of breaker tools (or bits) has been built to break all kinds of material and combines excellent performance with low noise and vibration levels. The machine can also be equipped with the Volvo thumb, designed to work with both Volvo direct fit buckets and quick coupler to make many tasks possible, including piling, placing, loading, lifting and carrying.
