Features

Power-assisted precision

Given its prodigious power, the EC55C is surprisingly easy to handle. Movements of the accessory and boom can be simultaneously controlled by the twin joysticks.

Smarter to work with

Settle into one of the most spacious cabs in its category and you’ll see the benefits right away. Wrap-around glass offers an excellent view out on every side, front and rear. Easy-to-read gauges on the new electronic instrument panel put essential information about the machine on immediate view.

From start to finish

For greater power and safety, the EC55C automatically shifts from high to low speed when working on slopes, grading or backfilling. The intuitive control of slew and offset through precise movements of the joysticks results in well-finished, accurate grading in a short time. Pushing the blade lever forward engages the blade cylinder, exerting minimal, yet consistent downward force for levelling, backfilling, grading or contouring.

More leg space

For easy driving and frequent, intensive use, Volvo’s EC55C is equipped with heavy-duty travel pedals like those used on full size excavators. By mounting the electro-proportional control on the joystick rather than using a foot pedal, Volvo’s made sure there is plenty of room for even a long-legged operator to work in uncramped conditions.

As well as built-in heating and defrosters, the cab features optional air-conditioning to combat operator discomfort and fatigue. Whatever the weather, the EC55C keeps the operator comfortable all day long.
