Operate with increased power and digging force with Volvo's EC250D and EC300D tracked excavators. With quicker cycle times and greater productivity, these machines will help you to get the job done faster. Combine that with improvements in fuel consumption, ease of use and servicing, and of course the renowned operator comfort you’ve come to expect from Volvo – and these machines truly do stand out as best in class for their respective weights.

The EC250D and EC300D excavators from Volvo Construction Equipment are heavy-duty machines that don’t disappoint when it comes to heavy digging and lifting duties. Let’s take a closer look at why these excavators are leading the industry in excavating equipment.

At the heart of them is a Volvo D7 engine, capable of delivering low emissions and high fuel efficiency. The engine uses precise, high-pressure fuel injectors, turbocharging and intercooling plus advanced electronics to optimise engine performance. An advanced mode control system ensures the maximum possible hydraulic horsepower available is delivered at a constant engine speed under varying load conditions. 

From utility and construction to mass excavation and loading, these machines have the versatility and ability to cope with a wide range of tasks. Fitted with Contronics, the advanced mode selection system allows operators to choose from four working modes that best suit the job at hand. This not only tailors the performance of the machine to the application, it also optimises the use of fuel. Modes include Idle, Fine, General, and Heavy. Performance can be further matched to the task by an attachment management system, which stores up to 18 different attachment presets.

Volvo CE knows that when operators are comfortable they experience less fatigue and work more productively. That’s why the Volvo EC250D and EC300D excavators offer operators excellent visibility, ideally placed controls, maximum comfort and a quieter place to spend their days. Thanks to ROPS protection and mounted-on dampened cab mounts that iron out vibrations, the cabs are also a lot safer for operators. Trust Volvo to think of everything and increase your productivity.

With built-in serviceability, the EC250D and EC300D help you to get the most out of each working day. Volvo engineers have designed these machines to make maintenance easy – with safe and easy access to centralised filters and grouped greasing points. Service points are simpler and safer to reach via wide opening compartment doors. A quick check of the monitor in the cab allows technicians to easily perform diagnostic checks.

Of course, as standard, these machines come fitted with CareTrack, the Volvo Construction Equipment telematics system. Accessed remotely, CareTrack provides machine information such as fuel consumption and service reminders that allow improved planning and operation. A comprehensive range of service plans are also available from national distributor for Volvo CE, CJD Equipment, ranging from routine wear inspections to full service agreements.

CJD Equipment’s partnership with Volvo CE extends more than 25 years. With a strong network of branches across Australia it has the ability to provide unrivalled sales and support to its customers.
