In the ‘Heavy Earthmoving’ category you can find the the Volvo LC450H Landfill Compactor and Volvo ECR355E Excavator.
The LC450H landfill compactor has an operating weight of 90,000 pounds and is powered by a 416-horsepower Volvo D13J engine. The HTL310 transmission has a lock-up converter delivering high torque output and excellent fuel efficiency. This unit can be fitted with a Terra semi-u blade or a straight blade and includes Comfort Drive Control (CDC) allowing the machine’s steering to be controlled by a joystick. The machine’s single lever control with integrated forward/neutral/reverse and first gear kick down give the operator the choice to control the transmission from his left or right hand.
Another unit, the Volvo ECR355E Excavator a 35-ton, short-swing-radius excavator—is a new size class for the range. The new model uses a 241-horsepower, Volvo D8 Tier 4-F engine designed to combine high torque and low-rpm operation, while delivering an 18-percent increase in horsepower, 28-percent increase in torque, and a 10-percent increase in fuel efficiency, compared with the predecessor model, the Volvo ECR305C.
The ECR355E is equipped with integrated work modes, including an ECO mode, and auto-idle and auto-engine-shutdown features are aimed at reducing fuel consumption. Serviceability features include wide compartment doors, ground-level access to maintenance points, grouped greasing manifolds, and anti-slip plates. The reversible cooling fan adjusts automatically to cooling demands, reducing fuel consumption and sound.
