The new E Series short-swing crawler excavators from Volvo provide improved visibility when operating in confined spaces and greater fuel efficiency without compromising their power and performance. The ECR145E and ECR235E come packed with 119- and 172-horsepower, respectively. The best aspect is their Tier 4 Final engines that deliver up to 10 percent fuel economy advancement.

Both machines offer integrated working modes, which allow the operator to select the best work mode for the application — Idle, Fine, General or Heavy. Equipped with auto-idle and engine-shutdown features, these excavators have been created to handle a wide range of applications. Their durable undercarriage is designed to ensure tractive force when climbing and when traveling over both rough and soft terrain.

The new cab design is equipped with a rollover protection structure and features spacious room with large windows, a wider entrance, improved climate control as well as a keypad used to navigate through different settings on the 8-inch LCD monitor and activate machine functions in a safe, comfortable manner.

The ECR145E and ECR235E provide the lowest total cost of ownership with their enhanced hydraulics, improved ECO mode and convenient service access.

The optimized hydraulics system is combined with the fully electronic control system to improve controllability and response time. This system works in tandem with the exclusive Volvo ECO mode, which enhances the hydraulic system further to reduce flow and pressure losses resulting in lower fuel consumption.

These excavators are compatible with a variety of attachments to increase versatility. They can be equipped with general purpose or heavy-duty buckets, each perfectly matched for digging in all conditions. They offer maximum productivity, long life and feature original wear components.
