Volvo Construction Equipment, at a special media event, introduced three new products at Flagler Construction Equipment in Tampa. Flagler is the exclusive Volvo dealer in Florida.
Rock Products' Associate Editor Josephine Smith was on hand for the roll-out. The products introduced were:
The EC380E excavator.
The EC380E is a 38-metric-ton-class excavator crawler that will be launched in December 2014. The Volvo heavy-duty EC380E crawler excavator is an exceptionally productive machine that lowers operating costs through reduced fuel consumption and simple maintenance requirements. Powered by a proven Tier 4 Final Volvo D13 engine, the EC380E delivers high digging and breakout forces alongside reduced emissions with a 9 percent improvement in fuel efficiency.
L150H wheel loader.
The L150H along with the L180H and L220H wheel loaders occupy the 25-30 ton weight class. The tier 4 final H-series loaders have been designed for ultimate operator comfort. Internal noise levels are kept to a minimum, while an industry-leading air filter design ensures a clean and unpolluted cab environment. Volvo also recently introduced an updated L250H wheel loader.
A40G articulated hauler.
The new G-Series articulated haulers – including the A35G, A35G FS, A40G and A40G FS – are suited to a wide variety of applications in quarries, mining and earthmoving. The powerful, new turbo-charged six-cylinder Volvo engines have been redesigned to adhere to stringent Tier 4 Final emissions regulations.
