The EC480D from Volvo Construction Equipment is a Tier 4i-compliant excavator that puts Volvo in a new era of low emissions and high productivity. Meeting the strict requirements of new EPA emissions legislation, the powerful EC480D excels in heavy digging and lifting duties, offering superior cycle times and greater fuel efficiency. This machine features an automatic idling system that reduces engine speed when the levers and pedals are not activated — aiding fuel efficiency and lowering external noise. It also features a heavy-duty undercarriage, advanced hydraulics, and a roomy, low fatigue working environment with clear visibility and easy-to-handle controls.
