The EC300DL excavator offers increased durability and 11 per cent greater fuel efficiency over its predecessors.
Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) is strengthening its product offering in Indonesia with the launch of the EC300DL crawler excavator. The company's Indonesian leadership and staff, along with dealers Intraco Penta Prima Servis (IPPS) and Indotruck Utama (ITU), gathered for a special event to officially welcome the new machine.
Designed with durability and productivity in mind, the EC300DL offers best-in-class fuel efficiency and short cycle times. The crawler excavator's robust design makes it an ideal choice for mining, heavy construction and quarries, three sectors that are looking for alternative options according to Gerrit Lambert, Sales and Marketing Director at PT. Volvo Indonesia (the Indonesian subsidiary of Volvo CE).
'We're confident that the EC300DL will be a great option for Indonesia's construction, mining and quarry industries,' he said. 'Contractors are searching for machines that give them a competitive advantage. They want reliable and efficient equipment that is capable of handling even the most challenging job sites. The EC300DL is a machine that fits the bill perfectly-it's efficient, powerful, and easy-to-operate.'
Equipped with a smart electro-hydraulic system, the EC300DL provides increased power, digging force, faster cycle times and greater control. The crawler excavator is equipped with a Volvo D7 diesel engine that delivers up to 170 kW (231 hp) of power and 11 per cent more fuel efficiency compared with previous models.
Operators also have the option of using Volvo's unique ECO mode, which contributes up to 5 per cent of the machine's total fuel efficiency saving-with no loss of performance in most operating conditions.
