Instead of capturing an excavator’s swing energy to provide an electric assist to the engine, the hydraulic hybrid assist system on Volvo Construction Equipment’s upcoming 30-ton EC300E Hybrid uses the energy generated by the boom down motion and captures it hydraulically to assist in the boom up motion.

Clint explains why used equipment and repairability are incredibly important to his business.
