Volvo EC380E is a heavy hitter in tough conditions

The EC380E crawler excavator from Volvo Construction Equipment features a powerful Tier 4 Final/Stage IV engine, combining superior efficiency, productivity and durability for maximum profitability in quarry and mass excavation applications.

Volvo Construction Equipment’s 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/Stage IV-compliant Volvo D13 engine, the EC380E delivers high digging and breakout forces alongside reduced emissions and a 9% improvement in fuel efficiency.

The EC380E’s hydraulics are perfectly matched to the engine and are controlled by an advanced system that provides on-demand flow and reduces power losses within the circuit. Volvo’s unique ECO mode contributes up to 9% of the machine’s total improved efficiency – without any loss of performance in most operating conditions. As well as improving fuel efficiency, this increases controllability for more precise performance. Otherwise, Volvo’s integrated work mode system offers the operator a choice of five work modes according to the task in hand – I (Idle), F (Fine), G (General), H (Heavy) or P (Power max) – for optimum efficiency and machine performance. When the controls have been inactive for a pre-set amount of time, the excavator can be programmed to automatically reduce engine speed or even shut down, further reducing fuel consumption and noise. Operators can keep track of both current and average fuel consumption via a simple gauge in the cab.
