Building on a strong tradition of fuel efficiency and productivity, the Volvo EC210D crawler excavator is now available in Nepal. This powerful machine is equipped with a range of robust features to ensure a superior performance, shift after shift.
The EC210D excavator is not just more powerful than its predecessor EC210B, it also has up to 10% improved fuel economy.
This increased power and efficiency is likely to prove popular with construction companies in Nepal, where the machine has recently launched. According to the Federation of Contractors’ Association of Nepal (FCAN), the construction industry is responsible for up to 10% of the country’s GDP and accounts for 35% of government spending.
“Nepal’s government is planning a series of road building and infrastructure developments; while the hydropower industry is a strong and fast-developing business sector. Contractors are looking for good quality and reliable equipment to help them meet increasingly tight construction schedules. With its 20-ton rating, the Volvo EC210D is a versatile machine that is perfect for a range of applications, from construction and quarry work, through to hydropower projects and irrigation jobs,” said Volvo Construction Equipment (CE) business director for Nepal Peh Jing Peng.
Built with high quality components, the EC210D is a durable and efficient partner in a wide range of applications.
Volvo CE’s Nepalese dealer, M/s Explore Earth Moving P Ltd, has market-leading aftermarket coverage across the whole of the Himalayan state. Having a skilled and reliable service partner is essential in Nepal, given the land-locked country is 75% mountainous with many of its job sites in hard-to-reach locations.
The powerful Tier 3 Volvo engine of the EC210D works together with the proven hydraulics to provide high torque at low rpm for the ultimate combination of performance and improved fuel efficiency. For fast cycle times and optimum fuel consumption, the unit is equipped with intelligent work modes, including the new G4 work mode.
Operators can choose the best mode to suit the task at hand, selecting from I (Idle), F (Fine), G (General), H (Heavy) and P (Power max) mode. Choosing the correct mode according to working conditions ensures added versatility and increased productivity.
The EC210D features increased hydraulic flow for responsive, accurate control in grading and combined operations. Operators benefit from smoother, easier movement when travelling and lifting simultaneously as well as better grading quality from the harmonised boom and arm movement.
For a productive work shift, this excavator is equipped with a spacious and safe operator environment, offering enhanced all-around visibility, an adjustable seat and ergonomic controls. The improved cab interior features a new I-ECU monitor that displays a range of information for efficient operation.
Volvo CE offers a comprehensive range of attachments for use in a wide variety of tasks. The EC210D can be fitted with a selection of buckets and breakers that work in harmony with the machine to ensure optimal performance and profitability in any application. With a sturdy design and built-in durability, all compatible buckets are equipped with Volvo teeth to handle the toughest applications.
The EC210D can be equipped with either a top or side mounted Volvo hydraulic breaker built to break even most demanding materials, delivering consistent power and high breaking force. The Volvo-designed hydraulic breaker/shear piping and quick coupler piping option provide optimum flow to the hydraulic attachments. State-of-the-art auxiliary lines allow the correct flow and pressure for special attachments.
