Volvo CE claims high production capacity for its 90tonne class EC950F crawler excavator. Power comes from a 450kW Volvo D16 diesel that meets Tier 4 Final emissions requirements, as well as high torque at low rpm. Designed for fast and efficient on-site production, the machine can be paired with the Volvo CE A60H ADT. The EC950F fills the 33.6m³ capacity ADT in just four bucket passes, with an average cycle time of 20-25seconds.

Optimised hydraulics deliver high pressures across each phase of the digging and lifting cycle. The hydraulic system increases pump power for fast and smooth operation, while the electro-hydraulic system controls on-demand flow and reduces losses in the hydraulic circuit. The EC950F also comes with a boom-swing priority valve that adjusts the priority of hydraulic flow between boom-up and swing so that truck loading cycle times can be set to truck loading working conditions.

Volvo’s ECO Mode helps the EC950F optimise fuel efficiency while the integrated work mode allows operators to choose the best work mode for the job. To boost versatility, the attachment management system can store settings for up to 20 different attachments.

Smart features include the optional Dig Assist to boost digging efficiency. For added visibility, the EC950F comes fitted with rearview camera and can be equipped with Volvo Smart View, which provides 360° vision.

For a prolonged bucket lifespan, Volvo offers a range of wear parts. To cut downtime, the Volvo Tooth System enables teeth changes in minutes.

The EC950F is eligible for the ActiveCare Direct remote telematics service, which provides active machine monitoring. In addition, customers receive a report to identify areas to improve worksite efficiency, avoid downtime, and catch problems before they occur.
