Volvo has launched a new contender into the competitive 20-tonne excavator market.

The EC200E slots between the EC220E and EC180E models and has the Stage V-certified D4 Volvo engine.

“The EC200E is an extremely versatile machine, one that is able to carry out many tasks for a variety of applications. By combining the EC200E with tailor-made Volvo attachments, customers can make the most out of the machine – maximising efficiency, hence profitability,” said the company.

In a design ‘first’ for its mid-sized machines, the new model is now easier to access from the right-hand side (pictured), thanks to a new step welded to the undercarriage and a three-point handrail above it.

. . . and Gow goes wide

♦ Recent Volvo customers in Scotland include Thurso-based Gow Groundworks which has added its second specially-converted EC140E LM excavator.

The widespread model will operate on Gow’s ground working and general contracting applications and the LGP conversion by Central Engineering Ltd allows it to carry 1400mm track pads in areas requiring ultra-low ground bearing pressure, such as in peat bogs, or to revert to the standard 750mm.

Other features include Steelwrist tiltrotator and high visibility livery.
