A new Volvo ECR88D reduced swing compact excavator has been delivered to The Hire Centre (Fort William Ltd) by Volvo Construction Equipment’s utility dealer for the north of Scotland, CSM Sales Ltd.

The new Volvo 8.8 tonne machine is a break from tradition at The Hire Centre although a couple of EC15 compact excavators were part of the fleet back in 2004. “Besides evaluating the market for this size of machine, one of the main reasons for choosing Volvo was the fact we had been cross hiring ECR88D’s in to satisfy demand and the machine has become quite favoured by our regular customers,” comments The Hire Centre’s manager Cammie Kennedy. “It has a very comfortable cab and the performance and fuel efficiency in particular makes this a popular machine to hire.”

The Volvo ECR88D in particular is highly regarded in the marketplace for its economical use of fuel thanks to the combination of its Tier IV interim 2.6 litre engine developing 56 nett horsepower and closed centre load sensing hydraulic system which provides fast cycle times and smooth control. The machine offers a generous horizontal reach of 7.3 metres and a lift capacity of 960kg at full reach across the carriage. Operator comfort and excellent access to all the service points have added to the overall appreciation of the machine. The ECR88 has a comfortable, spacious cab with a wide uncluttered floor. The instrument panel provides operators with at-a-glance monitoring of all key functions and operator fatigue is reduced through easy-grip, high response joystick control levers. The rubber-mounted cab reduces whole-body vibration, and external noise minimizing the rigors of the jobsite whilst air conditioning with well positioned vents is a standard feature.

The new ECR88D joins The Hire Centre’s fleet of equipment which includes compact excavators, site dumpers, rollers and compressors along with a large selection of small tools for hire. The company offers operated and non-operated spot, medium and long term hire and will uniquely offer half day hires in the local vicinity.

CSM Sales Ltd headed up by Managing Director Calum Shaw based at Longman Industrial Estate Inverness is Volvo Construction Equipment’s utility dealer for the whole of the north of Scotland.
