The Volvo EC700CHR High-Reach Excavator offers a 105 ft. (32 m) reach, and joins the Volvo EC380DHR and EC480DHR in the high-reach line-up.
Volvo Construction Equipment now offers three high-reach (HR) excavators with available boom heights ranging from 69 to 105 ft. (21 to 32 m). The newest high-reach excavator — the EC700CHR — offers a 105 ft. (32 m) reach, and joins the Volvo EC380DHR and EC480DHR in the high-reach line-up.
All Volvo high-reach machines include a design which allows operators to easily change the high-reach boom and arm to a standard backhoe or straight boom configuration in as little as 30 minutes, increasing machine utilization and productivity, according to the manufacturer.
The EC700CHR design offers operator safety and machine stability through a number of features, including a long undercarriage, extra modular counterweight, boom and arm holding valves, optional slew-reduction control and a total moment indicator, which signals a warning if the machine is approaching overload.
Machine productivity is enhanced with a viscous-mounted and sound-dampened cabin, forward and rear-view cameras, and an optional reversible fan which purges coolers of dust and debris.
