Built to last, the 5.5 tonne EC55B Pro compact excavator from Volvo Construction Equipment is designed to work harder, for longer – delivering faster, smoother responses, high fuel efficiency and superior performance.
The EC55B Pro from Volvo's line of compact excavators has the productivity and fuel efficiency trademarks that Indonesian customers expect from Volvo machine, but built into a smaller, high performance package.
Gerrit Lambert, Sales & Marketing Director at the company’s local subsidiary, PT Volvo Indonesia, said the machine’s versatility is one of its most attractive features.
“This is a heavy-duty and durable machine that’s suitable for a range of applications,” he said. “With construction levels on the rise in Indonesia we’re seeing more interest in compact equipment with greater versatility - and the EC55B Pro really fits the bill. Importantly, with this machine, the design includes a cab. This not only creates a safer working environment for the operator it also improves productivity through better comfort. Customers will also like the industry-leading fuel efficiency the unit offers.”
The design of the EC55B Pro is built around helping owners do more work in a shorter space of time. With a breakout force of 40 kN, the 5.5 tonne EC55B Pro delivers superior traction, swing force and lifting capacity, allowing it to take on challenging jobs with ease. For the ultimate combination of power and productivity, the unit’s improved cooling ensures optimized performance for any climate – including the demanding environments of Indonesia.
Running the EC55B Pro is a smooth and comfortable experience, with operators able to dig to a maximum depth of 4 m, and also load and lift an industry-leading 2,920 kg at ground level. The robust and compact excavator does exactly what the operator wants, thanks to responsive controls and an optimized hydraulic system designed to deliver precise grading and a high quality finish.
As with all Volvo CE machines, fuel efficiency is a major focus with the highly efficient EC55B Pro offering reduced costs, to ensure more profitable operation. With an arm tear-out force of 29 kN, the state-of-the-art hydraulic system is perfectly matched to Volvo’s premium diesel engine. The engine is Tier 3/Stage III certified and provides high performance and superior fuel efficiency.
Proven reliability and versatility
The strong and durable EC55B Pro is rigorously tested and proven to increase uptime and ensure a highly competitive residual value. Even in extreme conditions, the robust compact excavator enables a sturdy operation, thanks to its unique design, heavy-duty arm and X-shaped undercarriage. The wrap-around shape of the counterweight shields the engine compartment and protects the back of the machine perfectly, enabling operators to work more safely in narrow job sites.
Well-engineered to withstand tough applications, Volvo’s robust buckets are reinforced with Volvo teeth and wear parts for a longer lifetime. Additionally, Volvo has developed the range of breaker tools to break a wide range of materials.
Easy and comfortable operation
For more comfortable operation and reduced operator fatigue, the EC55B Pro’s spacious cab features all-round visibility and a quiet working environment. Built for maximum convenience, the cab features ergonomically-positioned monitor and controls, a fully adjustable seat, and a semi-long joystick for a more comfortable and productive work environment. The low-noise cab offers superior vibration insulation and is equipped with a large door and three-point-access for safe ingress and egress.
Maximum uptime is preserved thanks to simple-access maintenance points and the new, easy-to-clean single layer cooling system. Daily service points can be worked on from ground level, while the wide-opening lockable engine hood provides easy access to checkpoints, grouped together for added convenience.
