Maybe you’re wondering why heavy equipment is featured in StreettalkPh? Well, as we’ve said, anything on the road…and off. Besides, all earthmoving equipment excites all of us here! We know you, our readers are all thrilled too!

Unbeknownst to a majority, Volvo also manufactures heavy equipment, and the quality that comes with Volvo automobiles is evident on their truck and heavy equipment line. This excavator is no exception. The Volvo EC200D is the fastest 20-ton class excavator on the market. With shorter cycle times and outstanding lifting capabilities it delivers significant productivity improvements for all types of general construction work.

The new EC200D has all these premium Volvo features – and more. The EC200 offers exceptionally high swing torque and unique lifting capabilities, which makes it the natural choice for general construction earthmoving work.

The excavator cycle time includes digging, lifting, rotation and unloading. The faster the cycle can be finished, the higher productivity for the machine. With the powerful Volvo D5E Tier 3 with output of 123 kW at 2,000 rpm, and strong hydraulics, the EC200D is designed to operate fast and with short cycle times.
