Volvo CE has introduced a new range of excavators with upgrades in safety, performance and operator features. The initial launch includes multiple medium and large excavator models in North America — the ECR145 short swing, EC210, EC230, EC370, EC400 and EC500 crawler excavators.

“This new excavator series is the realization of our commitment to our customers. Every design change, innovation and weld were made with our customers' needs top of mind,” said Scott Young, head of region North America, Volvo CE. "All together, these updates will substantially impact their productivity, uptime, employee satisfaction and ultimately, their success."


An upgraded electro-hydraulic system and other features — like a smart cooling system and engine speed regulation for high torque at a low rpm — offer better performance compared with the previous generation while outperforming the prior models.

The hydraulics enable better machine control and movement of the boom, bucket and other hydraulic components. Work modes expand to 10 settings, including two specific to power and four specific to automatic ECO modes. A new creep travel mode coupled with boom and arm shock reduction settings give operators tight command of loads and reduce spillage.

“Our customers are looking for ways to increase productivity and reduce expenses, and we deliver on that with these new excavators,” said Sejong Ko, product manager — large excavators at Volvo CE. “Fuel in particular is a major expense, and the improved fuel efficiency will reduce costs with the added benefit of lowering the environmental impact.”

Volvo Smart View with Obstacle Detection gives operators 360-degree visibility of the machine’s surroundings. Volvo Smart View with Obstacle Detection combines camera technology and a new radar detection system to distinguish between objects and humans for awareness.

Additional lights have been added to the cab, boom and arm to make dimmer worksites safe as well.


Volvo also updated the cab in the new excavators. Equipped with a human-machine interface (HMI), the automation of boom and bucket movement with the Volvo Active Control machine control system and an electric control joystick support operators on jobsites.

  • Updated seat design

These models also include the newest generation Co-Pilot. The in-cab tablet’s large, high-resolution screen will display Dig Assist applications like on-board weighing, in-field design and more.
