Volvo Construction Equipment expands its C-Series hydraulic excavators line

[1]The C-Series excavator line has the more powerful Tier 3-certified Volvo engines, delivering exemplary fuel efficiency. These engines have been united with intelligent hydraulics, and a more rugged undercarriage and superstructure — but that is only half the story. The operator’s environment, already class-leading with the B-Series, has been substantially upgraded, giving operators more comfort, more space, a better climate, better visibility and improved controls that are easier to use. Put these elements together, along with simplified servicing and monitoring, and the C-Series offers a high production, maximum-uptime machine.

These Tier 3 engines have V-ACT (Volvo Advanced Combustion Technology), which provides high torque at low revs, leading to ultra-efficient fuel consumption. Impossible to stall, the onboard computer balances maximum available power to hydraulic output, preventing the engine from becoming overloaded (regardless of engine speed or pump demand).

See the changes, feel the changes

The B-Series was instrumental in establishing Volvo Construction Equipment as a leading player in the global excavator market. The C-Series is set to take that success to a new level. The primary, at-a-glance improvements include:

With the launch of the C-Series excavators, Volvo demonstrates once again that it builds more care and quality into its machines. Care for the machine owner, care for the operator, care for the service technician and care for the environment around it.
