Test electric machines at Volvo CE's largest Utility Expo booth ever
"This will be our largest Utility Expo display to date, and the prime place to have operators try our equipment," said Scott Young, acting president of Region North America at Volvo CE. "Our electric machines are perfect for the utility segment and government fleets, and we want to give as many people as possible the chance to get in the seat. When you feel the power and performance of these machines, that's when it ‘clicks' that electric construction equipment is real and it's the future."
Volvo CE currently has six electric machines available with more in development.
Volvo CE says that the 23-ton EC230 Electric excavator, which is currently in pilot testing in North America, will be the star of the booth. The EC230 Electric will be equipped with Dig Assist, Volvo's excavator machine control software. Demonstrations of Dig Assist will be available, allowing attendees to get in the cab and perform precision grading with the fully electric excavator.
The Utility Expo attendees can also test the L20 Electric and L25 Electric compact wheel loaders and the ECR25 Electric compact excavator in fun games first seen at CONEXPO 2023, and the EC18 Electric and ECR18 Electric compact excavators will be in an operating pit. The new DD25 Electric asphalt compactor will also be on display.
Several electric machine charging solutions for both on- and off-grid job sites will be featured alongside the equipment.
Also on display will be an EWR130E wheeled excavator equipped with a Steelwrist tiltrotator and an L90H wheel loader with a Craig side-dump bucket. In addition to Dig Assist, there will be demonstrations of Load Assist and ActiveCare Direct advanced telematics.
New this year, Volvo will broadcast virtually from their booth Tuesday and Wednesday of show week, live-streaming across all Volvo CE social channels.
Volvo Financial Services will offer a special show-only promotion for Smart Commercial Accounts in addition to providing info on the leasing program for electric compact equipment.
