Volvo Compact Excavators Up for Any Challenge

The ECR35D compact excavator from Volvo Construction Equipment features a comfortable cab and advanced, easy-to-use controls for precise operations.

Based on a proven design, the ECR35D short swing radius compact excavator is designed to work with power and precision in tight spaces. Featuring high levels of comfort, performance and versatility, this easily serviceable machine is more productive than ever before across a range of applications.

This three tonne class Volvo excavator features a sturdy, spacious and comfortable cab, which is ROPS and OPG certified.

The large door and three-point-access allows safe ingress and egress, particularly useful on these smaller machines where operators often need to get in and out of the cab regularly. Inside, the multi-adjustable seat and console are mounted on the same suspension and move in unison – providing shock and vibration absorption, reducing fatigue and aiding machine control regardless of ground condition.


Small Machine, Big Productivity

The ECR35D combines a D1.8A stage 3A Volvo engine with a hydraulic system that delivers high performance with smooth operation – allowing operators to move more dirt using less fuel in all applications. The intuitive fingertip controls allow ease of operation, enabling high digging and lifting forces and the ability to operate powerful hydraulic attachments with ease.

Thanks to the short swing tail radius and positioning of the boom swing cylinder on the left below the cab, the Volvo ECR35D excavators are ideal for tight working conditions and can be used on restricted jobsites, while reducing risk of damage to the machine and its surroundings.

The swing post and cylinder stay within the tracks when in an offset position and the slew and offset movements are controlled simultaneously, for easy and fast positioning of the machine.


Operator Interface Tailors Performance

The ECR35D is available with an electronic system that enables operators to fine tune functions and settings through a keypad and monitor. Up to three profiles can be saved in the system, adjusting machine behaviour to suit application/operator preferences. The system also includes:

  • Four attachment-specific buttons that allow for precise adjustment of hydraulic flows from inside the cab
  • An ECO mode that reduces fuel consumption by up to 10 per cent
  • Two (user adjustable) pre-selected engine speeds, for applications such as grading or lifting
  • An auto idle system reduces noise disturbance and decreases fuel consumption
  • The auto engine shut-down cuts engine hours, maintenance costs and machine depreciation
  • Service reminders

Customers can also rely on a long list of standard features that enable efficient daily operations. Equipped with good tractive force and effective blade design, the ECR35D delivers high performance when dozing. The blade enables precise finish in grading applications, while the automatic two-speed travel reduces repositioning time.


Servicing Made Simple

To maximise uptime, the ECR35D has been designed to provide a low total cost of ownership, thanks to a combination of a number of efficient features. Wide-opening hoods allow good access to the filling points and daily checks, while at the rear the fuel and hydraulic filler pipes are well protected. The hydraulic oil check and fill is made through a transparent bowl, which allows early detection of contamination and acts as a filter when the tank is topped up.

All filters are installed in-line for easy maintenance, service check points are accessible from ground level and greasing intervals have been extended to 50 hours, minimising daily maintenance.
