Mackoy Groundworks Ltd puts new Volvo Crawler Excavators to work

This June, Mackoy are putting their four new Volvo Crawler Excavators (EC140E model) to the serious test. The new machines are helping Mackoy clear the way to becoming the leading groundworks and civil engineering company in South England.


With an operating weight of 13,170– 16,980kg and a bucket capacity of 0.33 -1.01m3 the new excavators are helping Mackoy drivers to move ground faster than ever before. The EC140E key features include the Volvo ‘care cab’ – a large roomy interior with plenty of legroom and foot space. The all-round visibility is enhanced by pressurised and filtered cab air supplied by a 14 vent, climate control system.

Managing Director of Mackoy, Mike Mayock comments on the new machines: “We’ve been working with Volvo for over six years and havecome to rely on their quality and customer service. The EC140E Crawler Excavators are exactly what we need to give us a head start on our new sites. Not only do they look great, but the functionality is unparalleled. In fact, our teams have only provided us with positive feedback on the usability of the crawlers. We have a busy summer ahead with a number of new projects on the horizon. The new machines will certainly play a big part in our continued success.”

Mr Mayock is also impressed with Volvo’s environmental credentials. “As a company we’re extremely conscious about our carbon footprint and the impact our work has on the local communities. The new Volvo machines feature the latest fuel-efficient technology which helps us reduce our emissions and consumption whilst keeping our neighbours happy!”

The new EC140E’s join Mackoys already impressive fleet of excavators, dumpers and rollers all of which proudly bear the iconic red ‘m’, emphasised by the signature Mackoy blue background. Neil Cooper, Area Business Manager for Volvo comments:

“Mackoy is a great customer to work with. As a company it has grown at an extremely impressive rate and we are proud to continue to supply them with Volvo machines. It’s also a pleasure for SMT GB to be a part of Mackoy’s strong company vision – we really like to see our machines after the Mackoy ‘makeover’. The four new EC140E’s are a great inspiration to our clients as to how Volvo machines can be adapted and customised. We’re looking forward to the rest of the year as Mackoy has further additions to the fleet planned for this August.”
