Features and Benefits

Volvo EW240E MH Excavator - PUT WASTE IN ITS PLACE

  • Work in comfort in the spacious Volvo cab, which can be elevated to provide operators with an eye-view 16 feet above the ground. For smooth operation when working at height, the double damped cab mounts reduce vibration and noise. Operators can raise the cab and move the outriggers directly from the joysticks.
  • To enhance productivity, configure your machine both inside and out, and have it delivered to you straight from the factory. For increased visibility, you can fit your machine with Volvo Smart View or a one-piece polycarbonate window, with protection film. Additionally, you can select from a gooseneck arm or sorting arm, to ensure you always have the best grasp on the job.
  • Boost your machine’s productivity with a range of compatible attachments, available straight from the Volvo factory. You also have access to a range of Volvo Services, designed to secure maximum return on investment. From Genuine Volvo Parts and Volvo service technicians, to proactive machine monitoring and operator training – everything is available from one place.
