Volvo D-Series Excavators
June 6, 2012

Offering greater digging forces and faster cycle times, the machines that make up the Volvo EC140D, EC160D and EC220D middleweight excavator range offer high-quality performance and boast fuel efficiency improvements of up to 14 percent. Spanning the weight classes between 14 to 28 tons, the EC140D, EC160D and EC220D also offer excellent lifting capacity and stability, allowing heavier objects to be lifted. Fitted with the latest Volvo D4 engine (EC140D, EC160D) and Volvo D6 (EC220D) Tier 4 interim emissions-compliant engines, these units are also substantially more fuel efficient — up to 14 percent. Couple these efficient engines with well-matched components and a smart hydraulic system and the operator can enjoy smooth and highly responsive combined operation and travel, thanks to prioritizing oil flow according to requirements. Featuring greased and sealed track chains as standard, each track is powered by an automatic two-speed shift travel motor, maximizing tractive force. The track brakes are multi-disc, and travel motor, brake and planetary gears are all well protected within the track frame.
