Volvo EC220E – Demolition Style

The first Volvo EC220E with the special demolition spec has arrived into Pat O’Donnell & Co. and it offers an impressive number of modifications to enhance the machines experience and productivity.

Demolition Specification
This machine comes equipped with boom cylinder protection and bucket cylinder protection including extra hydraulics, which reduces the chance of machine damage and improves uptime on all types of demolition jobs. 

It also comes equipped with a frame-mounted falling object guard (FOG) which protects the operator and cab from wayward debris, enhancing safety and productivity. 

As we know, Volvo Excavators are present in a number of different industries such as General Construction, Quarrying & Mining and Agriculture, but this particular EC220E has been fractionally modified to cope with the demands of the demolition industry. 

The engine features proven advanced technology, and built on decades of experience, Volvo’s robust Tier 4 Final engine boasts more power – while reducing both fuel consumption and emissions to deliver superior quality, reliability and durability.

Main Control & Software
The valve is compatible with software in the machine to aid controllability, by providing smooth and easy operation. In addition to increased swing force, the EC220E also comes with a boom swing priority valve; this enhances controllability of the swing and boom operation – making it ideal for loading trucks.

Optimized Hydraulics System
The hydraulics system, combined with the fully electronic control system and advanced ECO mode, has been optimized to work in harmony with D4 Tier 4 Final engine to match the engine power, reduce power loss and improve controllability and response time.

Easy Service Access
Easy access for maintenance means regular checks are completed faster – increasing uptime and driving down total cost of ownership. The E-series features safe access guardrails to assist in checking the hydraulic tank, fuel tank and Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF). This is in addition to the easily accessible side entry, through a wide compartment door.
