Buying Used Volvo Excavators (Diggers)
The Swedish car manufacturer Volvo is best known for the excellent safety ratings of its family vehicles. What is known to a lesser extent is that Volvo excavators (also referred to as mini diggers)are built to the same reputable standards as every other machine built by Volvo. There is a full line of Volvo excavators available for purchase, from compact diggers for small jobs, wheeled excavators, and heavy-duty crawler excavators.
Do you need a machine that can handle a job where a large excavator may not be required? Perhaps a compact Volvo excavators is the machine for the job. From the EC15B, able to dig to a depth of 2.5 metres or 8 feet, all the way up to the ECR88 Plus able to handle a trench of over 4.8 metres or 16 feet, there's a Volvo excavator that's right for the job.
Uses of Volvo Diggers
Volvo's wheeled excavators (diggers) are the perfect vehicle for loading and unloading of aggregate and other soft materials in construction yards and on other stable surfaces. With bucket capacities ranging from a 1/2 m3 (15 cubic feet) all the way up to 1.5 m3 (45 cubic feet), Volvo wheeled excavators have more than enough power to handle the job. The new C-series excavators by Volvo have improved load sensing capability, advanced combustion technology, and a more comfortable cab.
As the heavy lifters of the family, Volvo's heavy-duty crawlers are able to go wherever they're needed. Volvo's engines deliver high torque at low revs, giving them great fuel economy. Since they're made of more than 95% recycled material, they may qualify as the greenest earthmovers on the planet. Bucket capacities range from 0.7 m3 (almost 25 cubic feet) all the way up to 6.6 m3 or over 200 cubic feet.
Volvo excavators are definitely worth looking into for your next construction project. If price is an issue, check out used Volvo excavators at Mascus.ca.
