Volvo launches EC120D and EC140D excavators in China

The new Volvo EC120D and EC140D excavators for the Chinese market are equipped with a powerful Tier 3-compliant D3.8E engine that works in harmony with the hydraulics to deliver exceptionally low fuel consumption in their respective weight classes. 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 on excavators in the 12-14 and 13-15t weight classes 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 EC120D and EC140D excavators in China.

In difficult terrain the Volvo EC120D and 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 EC120D and EC140D to be adapted for almost any crawler excavator application. The Volvo EC120D and EC140D are 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 EC120D and EC140D excavators offer 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.
