Volvo CE launches the EC750E HR, its largest high-reach excavator in North America

The EC750E HR can reach up to 118 feet high and is capable of handling up to 8,000-pound tools, making it a versatile and powerful demolition excavator

"The EC750E HR is based on our popular EC750E crawler excavator but has been substantially re-engineered for high-reach deconstruction purposes with a heavier and wider undercarriage and factory-fitted guarding," said Walter Reeves, sales manager for demolition products at Volvo Construction Equipment.

The new EC750E HR high-reach excavator from Volvo Construction Equipment offers exceptional reach, with a maximum pin height of 118 feet, and can also be easily reconfigured using extensions and different boom sets to become a multi-use demolition tool.

"The EC750E HR is based on our popular EC750E crawler excavator but has been substantially re-engineered for high-reach deconstruction purposes with a heavier and wider undercarriage and factory-fitted guarding," said Walter Reeves, sales manager for demolition products at Volvo Construction Equipment. "The features on this machine give it the power, stability and versatility contractors need to tackle some of the most challenging, large-scale demolition projects."

More machine, more possibility 

Volvo's patented hydraulic modular joint concept uses a two-pin hydraulic lock mechanism to allow the high reach to be changed into a digging configuration with only one person in less than an hour.

The EC750E HR also has a second hydraulic modular joint on the extension boom, allowing the angle of both the extension and the digging boom to be set quickly and safely between bent and straight configurations.

Three boom options 

The EC750E HR brings added flexibility with its two high-reach demolition boom sets and one digging boom set with an extension:

  • High-reach boom with a 118-foot maximum pin height while carrying a tool of up to 8,000 pounds
  • High-reach boom with an 85-foot maximum pin height while carrying a tool of up to 11,000 pounds
  • Digging boom set with a 14.4-foot extension allows for a 59-foot pin height
The retractable undercarriage features easy-to-remove track frames and the ability to self-disassemble and reassemble, which makes transporting the EC750E HR an easy process.

Undercarriage built for demolition and mobility 

Compared to the EC750E, the undercarriage of the EC750E HR is 1 foot 9 inches longer and 2 feet 10 inches wider, providing added stability. The hydraulic extendable undercarriage also allows for a 360-degree working range, which lets the operator spend less time repositioning the machine and remain focused on the job.

The retractable undercarriage features easy-to-remove track frames and the ability to self-disassemble and reassemble, which makes transporting the EC750E HR an easy process. A strengthened hydraulic removal system also means the complete counterweight can be removed in one movement.

Support you can count on Like all Volvo excavators, the EC750E HR is backed by the Volvo Lifetime Frame and Structure Warranty, which covers the frame, boom and arm for the entirety of the initial period of ownership. It is also eligible for ActiveCare Direct™, the Volvo service that provides 24/7/365 active machine monitoring and fleet utilization reporting directly from Volvo.

Recycled aggregates for roads

Municipalities are responsible for the care and maintenance of vast amounts of roads, from lanes to highways. When those roads are repaired or replaced, there's the potential to generate a significant amount of aggregate material - concrete and asphalt removed from the surface that must be dealt with.
Today's roadbuilding contractors are taking this material and recycling it more than ever before. However, research is showing that some municipalities are far better than others when it comes to using this type of aggregate in their roads - and some are far behind.

LEED changes a boost for C&D

Construction and demolition (C&D) materials are hefty. It is why we can so effectively build roads, bridges and buildings out of them. It's also why, by weight, they are the most significant material in the North American waste stream. This creates a challenge for recycling, as it's usually too expensive, in terms of ROI, to ship most recovered C&D end products, including wood, concrete, drywall, asphalt, and asphalt shingles.

New sidewall protection for OTR tires designed for concrete and aggregates recycling

At concrete and aggregate recycling sites, recycled aggregate is produced by crushing concrete and asphalt to reuse the aggregate in the construction industry as a base for roads or building foundations.  To keep operations running site managers rely on loaders to push large jagged chunks of torn up sidewalk, roadway or building materials - which can contain steel rebar - to the crushing line to reduce its size.

Cat multi-processors feature quick-change jaws, greater cutting/crushing forces, increased speed, durable design

Three new Cat MP332, MP345 and MP365 Multi-Processor models are heavy-duty, high-production tools that accept multiple interchangeable jaws for taking on a variety of specialized demolition tasks. The new models, compared with previous models, can cycle 50 percent faster and generate up to 19 percent greater cutting/crushing forces. An innovative locking system enables a single operator to typically change jaw types in 15 minutes or less, using only standard hand tools. An included stand securely and stably holds unused jaw sets.

  • Concrete Cutter: outer jaw cracks concrete, inner jaw shears steel
  • Demolition: cracks thick concrete structures
  • Pulverizer: crushes concrete, separates rebar
  • Shear: cuts structural steel, pipe, cable
  • Tank Shear: cleanly cuts tanks or plate steel at right angle on three sides
  • Universal: cuts steel and crushes concrete
