As reported by Mobility Engineering Tech in “Volvo CE Showcases 100-Ton EC950F Excavator, New Hybrid Assist That Cuts Fuel Use by 15%,” Volvo Construction Equipment introduces its EC950F crawler excavator, highlighting its capabilities at ConExpo-Con/Agg. Renowned for its contributions to hydraulic systems, Volvo CE collaborates with Malone Specialty to enhance the performance and efficiency of this cutting-edge excavator.

The EC950F, powered by a robust 603-hp Volvo D16 Tier 4 Final engine, boasts exceptional productivity and torque, particularly when paired with the Volvo A60H articulated hauler. Expertise from both Volvo CE and Malone Specialty ensures optimal hydraulic performance, contributing to the excavator’s ability to fill the 60-ton haul truck in just four bucket passes, with an impressive cycle time of 20 to 25 seconds.

Various boom-and-arm options cater to diverse project requirements, offering extended reach or increased breakout force, supported by a stable base facilitated by a wider track gauge and heavier counterweight. Contributions extend to hydraulic optimization, ensuring constant high pressures throughout digging and lifting cycles, enhancing operational efficiency and smoothness.

Moreover, the integration of a hybrid configuration further enhances versatility, allowing for the use of different bucket sizes to suit specific applications. Collaboration between Volvo CE and Malone Specialty ensures that the EC950F remains at the forefront of innovation, meeting the evolving needs of the construction industry with advanced technology and superior performance.
