volvo construction equipment
VOLVO is your trusted partner
for complete demolition solutions.
Demolition. It is a key ingredient in progress.
The deconstruction of buildings, bridges and
other structures is tough, gritty work. Winning
at demolition demands extreme-duty equipment,
performance attachments — and a partner to back
it all up, shift after shift.
Volvo delivers, with purpose-built demolition
excavators, wheel loaders, haulers and more. Trusted
solutions for every stage of demolition.
Volvo combines power and performance
with altitude in its C-Series Ultra High
Reach (HR) excavators. With available
boom heights from 21 meters to 32
meters, Ultra High-Reach models
include the EC360CHR, EC460CHR
and EC700BHR. with robust hydraulics,
guarding packages and ability to work
various attachments from 2.5 to 3.5 tons.
Volvo equipment is engineered for
performance on all types of demolition.
Demolishing structures. Sorting and
processing steel beams, rebar,
concrete, wood, tile and more. Loading
and transportation. Site remediation
and finishing. Volvo takes you from first
stroke to final grade with power, reliability
and low cost of operation. Count on it.
For primary and secondary demolition
jobs, Volvo has six Standard
Demolition Excavators, the EC210C,
EC240C, EC290C, EC360C, EC460C
and EC700C. All models feature
heavy-duty fabrication, demolition
guarding, excellent visibility and the
industry-leading Volvo Care Cab.
Whether you’re working Volvo C-Series
demolition excavators, wheel loaders,
mini-excavators or compact loaders,
rely on clean lines of sight to the job,
operator comfort and protection, and
a fuel-efficient Volvo powertrain that
perfectly matches engine speed with
hydraulic flow to best any demolition task.
• Power and quick cycles for demolition.
• Demolition attachment performance.
• Demolition excavators, wheel loaders — and more.
excavators with real altitude
tame primary demolition jobs.
Primary demolition is all about reach, power and
control. Volvo’s line of four Ultra High Reach (HR)
excavators have booms from 21-32 meters, highvisibility cabs and smooth, confident hydraulics.
Equipped with tools from 2.5 to 3.5 tons, they cut
demolition challenges down to size.
Volvo’s six Standard Demolition Excavators bring
strength, quick cycles, fuel efficiency and superior
protection to bear on all your other demolition tasks.

• Excellent stability and safety
throughout the working envelope,
thanks to a long undercarriage, extra
modular counterweight, boom and arm
holding valves, optional slew-reduction
control, and a Total Moment Indicator
that warns the operator if the machine
approaches the maximum safe working

high-reach attachments such as
pulverizers, severe-duty grapples,
crushers, hammers and shears.
Maximum attachment weight ranges from
2.5 tons on the EC360C and EC460C,
to 3.5 tons on the EC700B.
• Productivity-enhancing features and
options include viscous-mounted and
sound-dampened cab, forward and
rear-view cameras, and a reversible
fan to purge the coolers of dust and
• The standard hydraulically tilting
cabin tilts up to 30 degrees to
enhance visibility and reduce operator
fatigue and neck strain on high-reach
• Optional hydraulically variable
undercarriage width for easier
transport and for optimal stability.
• Easily change from demolition configuration
to straight boom or regular backhoe.
30-minute quick change
from demo to backhoe
Total utilization. A innovative design
makes it easy to change from the
Ultra High Reach boom and arm to
a standard backhoe configuration or
a straight boom. So your excavator
will stay busy even when you don’t
have high-reach projects.
The Volvo hydraulic modular joint
makes this quick change possible.
The machine boom engages two
full-length pins on the desired
equipment — backhoe, straight
boom or demolition boom.
A hydraulic joint secures the locking
pins, and safety caps are fitted to
the ends of each pin to make it
ready for operation.
Volvo high-reach excavators come
with both the high-reach demolition
boom and a digging boom and arm
for maximum versatility and uptime.
A transportation cradle for both
equipment options is also standard.
• Volvo delivers reach and attachment power.
• Strong tear-out forces.
• Stability on uneven ground.
• Control to work in tight spaces.
secondary demolition, prime production.
Extreme conditions. Sharp, jagged, heavy and
gritty. Few things in construction put more strain
on equipment than moving, sorting, loading and
processing demolition debris. Volvo Standard
Demolition Excavators have the muscle and the
armor to excel at all stages of demolition. You want
your jobs done right, done safely and profitably.
Volvo gets you there.
• Robust demolition guarding features
include a frame-mounted falling
object guard (FOG), bolted side
impact protection system, heavy-duty,
double-thickness side doors, bucket
and boom cylinder guards that shield
rods, cylinders and piping.
• Undercarriage protection includes
full-length track-chain guards, thick
10 mm under plating with bolthead protection, an 8 mm swing-ring
guard, and hinged service panels with
recessed hinges that won’t snag on
To lessen the effects of dust and
airborne debris, Volvo excavators have
micro-mesh screens on the side doors
and the engine cowl.
An optional reversible fan purges the
coolers of debris, enhancing uptime by
reducing need to stop the machine for
• Performance for site remediation.
• A world-class engine and hydraulic
system that perfectly matches hydraulic
flow to engine speed. The system
ensures hydraulic power when and where
it’s needed, especially on combined
operations such as lifting and swinging.
• The Volvo quick fit makes it easy to
switch demolition attachments such
as hammers, grapples for sorting or
feeding a crusher, shears for cutting
or resizing debris, and pulverizers for
processing concrete and other material.
The operator can store and recall
custom hydraulic flow settings from
a keypad in the cab.
• Stability for compacting and digging debris.
