Weighing in at 36,340 to 42,340 pounds, the new Volvo EC160B excavator offers a maximum dig depth of 19 feet 10 inches and digging reach of 28 feet 11 inches. Powered by a Volvo six-cylinder D6D engine, the new excavator has four power modes. For faster cycle times, the boom, arm and swing priority systems, boom and arm flow regeneration and two variable displacement piston pumps deliver high swing torque, powerful digging forces and fast dig and swing speeds. New electronic controls balance the available engine power and hydraulic output. The redesigned cab offers improved visibility, automatic temperature control and controls for the auxiliary hydraulics.
