The machine delivers dependable power with high torque, along with lower emissions, fuel consumption and noise.
Turbocharged high pressure direct injection Volvo diesel engine that offers maximum power of 279 hp (208 kW) (EC380D), and 343 hp (256 kW) (EC480D) respectively. Both machines feature an automatic idling system that reduces engine speed when the levers and pedals are not activated, aiding fuel efficiency and lowering external noise. Four working modes: Idle, Fine, General and Heavy.
Up to 18 different attachments can also be managed, tailoring hydraulic flow and (as an option) pressure according to the specific requirements of the tool being used. Add to this the new and unique Eco-mode system.
