Volvo Construction Equipment is once again the headline sponsor of the World Demolition Summit, October 20-21 in Chicago. Make plans to join Volvo to hear more about the full line of durable, efficient machines purpose-built for demolition.

Range of High-Reaches
Volvo offers a complete range of high-reach excavators, including the EC380EHR with a max reach of 75 ft 8 in (23,060 mm) and a tool weight capacity of 6,614 lbs (3,000 kg); the EC480EHR with a max reach of 92 ft 4 in (28,140 mm) and a tool weight capacity of 7,716 lbs (3,500 kg); and the largest class size, the EC750EHR, with a max reach of 118 ft 1 in (36,000 mm) and a tool weight capacity of 7,937 lbs (3,600 kg).

New EC380E Straight Boom
For demolition contractors looking for high reach while maintaining superior stability and lifting capabilities, the new Volvo EC380EL Straight Boom replaces the traditional bent boom approach with a 23-ft (7-m) straight boom and purpose-built arm.

This demolition-ready excavator offers a significant height advantage over standard models along with outstanding reach, stability, protections and durability, making it an ideal choice for those working in tough demolition applications.

It comes with several useful standard features that are valuable in demolition applications, including X1 and X3 auxiliary piping, a quick-fit and oil drain line, and water lines connected to a dust suppression system. The dust suppression system features a 7.9 gallons-per-minute (30 liters-per-minute) lifting pump, feeding water to four arm-based nozzles that together create a fine mist to contain dust.

Demolition-ready clean-up excavators
Volvo offers an impressive lineup of standard excavators as well — from the EC220E to the EC480E — so customers can get the right machines to efficiently clean up their toughest jobs. With frame-mounted FOGs, double-thick doors, debris screens, cylinder protection and more — all factory-fit by Volvo — contractors can take on their toughest demolition jobs with confidence.

Adding to that confidence is an industry-exclusive Lifetime Frame and Structure Warranty, which covers the excavator boom, arm and frame for the life of the machine.

Make plans to join us at World of Demolition Summit this October — you can also reach out to us with any questions you have in the meantime. See you there.
