Volvo ECR305 Excavator

Volvo ECR305C – The new top model in the class of short swing excavators

This machine rewrites the rules while offering the best of both worlds – a short swing design for confined areas while delivering the productivity, ease of operation and safety of a ‘conventional’ excavator.

The third and largest model in the excavator range, it features best-in-class lifting capacity, stability, digging force and fine control, as well as boasting better weight distribution and increased swing torque. Its new hydraulic system features full electro hydraulic control.

As with the ECR145C and ECR235C, the compact body swings only fractionally outside its track width. With its latest generation, Tier III, fuel-efficient engine with Volvo Advanced Combustion Technology developing 143 kW/195 hp, the ECR305C has power to spare.

The Volvo ECR305C overcomes the dynamic challenges of producing excavators that can work in confined areas while offering maximum performance: Not only with its best-in-class lifting capacity but also stability, productivity, ease of operation and safety, this machine sets a new standard in the industry – equal to its “conventional” counterparts.

Key features include:

  • Compact body swings only fractionally outside its own track width – less than 80 mm (with 800mm shoes) – enabling the machine to work extremely close to objects like walls, road barriers etc. – without risk of collision with the rear of the machine as it swings
  • Fitted with a heavier counterweight and optimum weight distribution: Class-leadingshort swing radius lifting capacity andstability, swing torque and tractive effort
  • All-new Volvo Care Cab: Despite the design consideration it is the roomiest and most comfortable cab in the market, yet compactly staying inside the counterweight swing radius. The sliding cab door allows easy access and exit, even close to obstructions.
  • Powerful 143 kW (195 hp) Tier 3/Stage IIIA Volvo engine with V-ACT offering high performance, durability and industry-leading fuel efficiency.
  • All service check and cleaning points are readily accessible via wide opening side doors, leading to more uptime for increased productivity.
