Go where other machines cannot thanks to the compact design of the EC18E. Easy to operate and easy to transport, this 1.8t excavator is the perfect choice when a compact machine is right for your application.
With a variable undercarriage that retracts to less than 1m and expands up to 1.35m, combined with a reduced machine height to less than 2.35m, you can count on the compact excavator to deliver superior performance when working in confined spaces. The machine design ensures that the right frame corner, swing post and cylinder stay within the tracks, resulting in maximum visibility and a reduced risk of machine damage when working alongside obstacles.
Thanks to its optimized weight balance, redesigned undercarriage with longer tracks, automatic two speed travel and large hydraulic pedals, the EC18E will smoothly load on to a trailer. Carry multiple buckets with ease with the Volvo bucket transportation system.
Transportation of the machine is safe and secure, thanks to its light weight and convenient design. With automatic slew lock and four easily accessed large tie-down points on the upper frame, the machine can be safely transported on a small trailer with up to three buckets and a hydraulic breaker, while maintaining a total transport weight of less than 2t.
Experience precise, smooth and effortless command of the boom offset and auxiliary hydraulic flows with proportional fingertip controls. The easy-to-use joystick allows you to fine-tune the maximum hydraulic flow of any attachment to ensure ideal speed and power for any task.
