Volvo Construction Equipment gives contractors and rental companies a new crawler excavator option between its 16- and 22-ton machines. EC200E is a 20-ton-class excavator that offers strong performance and comes without the added features and cost of a larger excavator.

Designed primarily for customers needing a light- to medium-duty digging excavator, EC200E has a maximum digging reach of 32 feet 9 inches and a maximum digging depth of 22 feet 3 inches, with a lifting capacity of 16,138 pounds.

The EC200E is fitted with X1 hydraulic piping and has an attachment management system that allows for pre-setting hydraulic flow and pressure for up to 20 attachments. The machine is equipped for quick couplers, which makes it easier to swap out attachments.

Additional features include:

  • The ability to transport it on a trailer without additional permits, as opposed to larger machines.
  • Auto idling, auto engine shutdown and ECO mode for increased fuel efficiency.
  • Service-friendly features like grouped filters and single-layer cooling systems that are easily accessible from ground level.
  • ROPS cab, high-visibility handrails, anti-slip steps and easy access to the machine via the right-hand side.
  • Integrated work modes incorporate engine rpm and hydraulic flow into a single dial, allowing operators to easily get the perfect balance of power and controllability.
  • New 8-inch LCD display.
  • Tier 4 Final D4 Volvo engine.

Like all Volvo excavators, EC200E is backed by the Volvo Lifetime Frame and Structure Warranty, which covers the frame, boom and arm for the entirety of the initial period of ownership. It is also eligible for a free year of ActiveCare Direct, Volvo’s 24/7/365 machine monitoring and fleet utilization reporting service.

With the Volvo Fuel Efficiency Guarantee, if the machine’s fuel consumption and productivity do not meet model-rated efficiency levels, Volvo will reimburse a portion of the additional fuel.
