Volvo Construction Equipment is once again establishing itself as a leader in excavator engineering with the completion of its High-Reach and Standard-Reach demolition excavator range. The newest model is the EC360CHR, introduced to the market in March, 2009.
Volvo demolition excavators are holistic solutions developed from experience and years of listening to demolition customers. They bring the proven reliability and performance of Volvo’s range of hydraulic excavators to a new level for the demanding conditions of demolition jobs. While durability and function are increased, the fuel efficiency, ergonomics and serviceability in every Volvo are not compromised.
Ten models are available to suit a wide range of production or reach needs.

The three largest models are in full production in 2009 with the EC290CHR entering the market in 2010.
A six-model lineup comprises the Standard-Reach range (using a CLD nomenclature):

What is Unique
These are comprehensive solutions using 100% Volvo technology: special feature designs are fully integrated with the base machine. They are tested and certified (where applicable), and produced by Volvo for consistent quality. Since aftermarket vendors are not used, all components are in the service and spare parts manuals and systems for seamless support by Volvo and the global Volvo dealer network.
The Standard-Reach range includes an integrated guarding package to increase reliability, safety, and uptime. All sides of the machine benefit from additional guarding, heavier structure or heavier gauge steel, all modular and bolt-on for ease of replacement. Automatically reversible fan(s) combine with screened air intakes to maintain performance and uptime in dusty or hot conditions. A full complement of auxiliary hydraulic circuits, controls, and quick couplers are available to optimize the most sophisticated demolition attachments.
The High-Reach range benefits from the same level of guarding and controls – no corners are cut in this package. The High-Reach range includes additional innovative Volvo technology:
