VOLVO Construction Equipment is strengthening its product offering in Indonesia with the launch of the EC300DL crawler excavator. The company’s Indonesian leadership and staff, along with dealers Intraco Penta Prima Servis (IPPS) and Indotruck Utama (ITU), gathered recently for a special event to officially welcome the new machine.

Designed with durability and productivity in mind, the EC300DL offers best-in-class fuel efficiency and short cycle times. The crawler excavator’s robust design makes it an ideal choice for mining, heavy construction and quarries, three sectors looking for alternative options, according to PT Volvo Indonesia sales and marketing director Gerrit Lambert.
“We’re confident that the EC300DL will be a great option for these industries in Indonesia,” he said. “Contractors are searching for machines that give them a competitive advantage. They want reliable and efficient equipment capable of handling even the most challenging job sites. The EC300DL is a machine that fits the bill perfectly — it’s efficient, powerful and easy-to-operate.”
Equipped with a smart electro-hydraulic system, the EC300DL provides increased power, digging force, faster cycle times and greater control. The crawler excavator is equipped with a Volvo D7 diesel engine that delivers up to 170 kW of power and 11% more fuel efficiency compared with previous models.
Operators also have the option of using Volvo’s ECO mode, which contributes up to 5% of the machine’s total fuel efficiency saving, with no loss of performance in most operating conditions. Additionally, a new gauge bar on the I-ECU shows fuel consumption instantaneously, allowing operators to monitor fuel use on different job sites or in different applications.
“The heavy-duty EC300DL is built to withstand all the rigours of the job site,” said Gerrit Lambert. “Whether it’s a major construction project, such as a dam, digging trenches, or shifting tough material in mines or quarries, the EC300DL gets the job done.”
The EC300DL will be available in Indonesia through dealer partners IPPS and ITU.
Appointed as a Volvo CE dealer in 2011, ITU carries a wide range of the company’s products, including articulated haulers, excavators, pavers, compactors and wheel loaders.
Established in 2012, IPPS is subsidiary of Intraco Penta, one of Indonesia’s largest heavy machinery dealers, with over four decades of experience. IPPS now operates from 12 distribution centres and has 27 after-market support offices.
