Jan. 28, 2011 – Volvo Construction Equipment recently introduced the new EC20C compact excavator which the company says provides reliability, operator comfort, ergonomic design, performance and safety in a 2-ton-class excavator.  The EC20C is powered by a Tier 4 compliant 16.2 horsepower diesel engine and sports a new cab and digging equipment design.

Other features of the new excavator include an electro-proportional fingertip control on the joystick for swing and offset movement at the same time, which Volvo says enables the EC20C excavator to deliver faster and more precise performance while reducing operator fatigue. Productivity is enhanced and fuel consumption lowered during travelling movements since travel speed automatically shifts from high to low according to the working load ensuring optimum productivity and traction when operating over steep terrain or in difficult conditions.

Operator comfort has not gone overlooked. The Volvo Care Cab provides a roomy operating environment that meets or exceeds TOPS, ROPS and OPG1 (Object Protective Guard) standards of protection. An adjustable seat has ergonomic armrests for operator comfort and the attachment circuit and offset function foot controls have been replaced by the joystick button — providing operators with more leg and foot room.
