First time Volvo for Harris Construction

Purchasing a new Volvo machine has been a new departure for proprietor Martyn Harris and a well-considered investment in his opinion. “So far we’ve been suitably impressed with the productivity and speed of operation coupled to the reach and dump height. It’s just big enough to load our 15 tonne truck when we need to dispose of overburden and other material.”

The Volvo EC27C is powered by a Volvo 1.6 litre low emission Stage III engine with an automatic two-speed travel system engages when operating in high speed mode, automatically shifting gear from high to low according to the travel load. Another feature for increased efficiency is the standard auto-idling system that lowers engine speed to idle if a control is not used for five seconds. This system delivers lower fuel consumption, longer engine life and less environmental noise. 

Volvo Construction Equipment Division markets wheeled loaders, articulated haulers, hydraulic excavators, graders, Volvo utility and road machinery products in the U.K.
