Volvo Construction Equipment’s latest wheeled excavators, the EW160E & EW180E, are multi-tasking machines, designed to cater to all the operator’s needs on the jobsite. Both models can be tailored to suit customers’ precise specifications, with a whole range of flexible configurations that allow operators to change attachments quickly and easily, and add-on useful features.For example, customers can choose from 12 different configurations of tires (including single and twin) from eight different suppliers, according to ground conditions. Customers can also select different arm lengths in line with jobsite requirements and market legislation. Optional hydraulic functions ‘X1 breaker/shear’ and ‘X3 tilt rotate’ provide power for attachments requiring one or two-way flow and two-way flow for tilting or rotating attachments respectively. The corresponding buckets, breakers and grapples (together with a quick coupler or tilt rotator) have all been purpose-built to work in perfect harmony with Volvo machines, forming one solid reliable unit.

Not only can the operator change attachments quickly and easily to perform all tasks on the jobsite, he or she can also bring them along wherever they go, saving time on transport and ensuring their excavator is always ready to work. Both models are approved for road use and can be fitted with a trailer hitch that can pull up to eight tonnes with dry run breaks and three tonnes without brakes. Operators can also bring all their tools along with them in a special drawer-type tool box that slides out from the undercarriage. This newly-developed feature can carry up to 120 kg. Box dividers, which can be adjusted into five different positions, help the operator stay organized, while a mechanical stopper prevents the drawer from sliding out during transport or operation. There is further storage inside the cab, as well as ample leg room.

In addition to a comfortable and convenient work environment, productivity is also increased by the excellent control afforded by the EW160E & EW180E excavators. The Boom Suspension System, for example, with its hydraulic circuit and gas pressure dampers, enables the operator to travel faster over bumpy roads or rough terrain, while the overall hydraulic system has also been improved for greater responsiveness. The ergonomically-positioned machine interfaces, including the joysticks, keypad and LCD monitor, are simple and easy to use.

Excellent all-round visibility is provided by the large windscreen – both models have an improved view to the right – as well as the new Volvo Smart View feature. Three cameras attached to different corners of the machine – the front, side and rear – combine to show real-time footage of the machine operating from above. The three cameras also film individual views of the front, side and rear of the machine. This intelligent and industry-leading technology helps the operator to see all angles and ensure safe rotation.

For further peace of mind during operation, customers can rest assured that the EW160E and EW180E excavators have been designed and tested to ensure the highest standards of efficiency and reliability.
