Volvo ECR50D packs a powerful punch

The 5.0-ton ECR50D compact short swing radius excavator from Volvo Construction Equipment delivers superior digging performance, high lifting capabilities, and leading break out and tear out forces in a compact and versatile format.

The Volvo ECR50D compact short swing radius excavator is a powerful machine that is ideal for site preparation, construction landscaping and utilities. Featuring a premium 41.8 hp Volvo D2.6A engine and an advanced hydraulic system, the ECR50D provides fast and powerful response with smooth operation. The maximum break out force is 36.12 kN ensuring excellent performance even in tough applications.

With its 5.0 -ton weight, this machine effectively handles heavy loads with greater stability, balance and control. For optimized travel speed and traction, the automatic two-speed travel function allows the operator to continually drive the machine at high speed. When more force is needed, speed is automatically reduced.

Impressive efficiency
Not only is the ECR50D excavator a powerful performance machine, it is also highly efficient. With state-of-the-art technology including Volvo’s unique ECO mode and load-sensing hydraulics, the ECR50D delivers low fuel consumption with high digging power and fast cycle times. The ECO mode reduces fuel consumption by up to 10% without any loss of performance in most operating conditions, while the load-sensing hydraulics supply power only when required. This also ensures smooth operation and precise control of the equipment.

Built in comfort
A comfortable operator environment naturally delivers higher productivity. The industry-leading Volvo cab boasts all-round visibility from large expanses of glass, ergonomically-positioned controls and switches, excellent noise insulation, as well as superior leg and head room. The seat and consoles are mounted on the same suspension and, therefore, move together, providing excellent shock and vibration absorption and a smooth ride.

The controls are easy to operate, with simultaneous boom offset movement and fingertip control of the slew that delivers easy and fast machine positioning with outstanding control and comfort.

The cab is safe and easy to access, thanks to the wide-opening door, anti-slip step and three-point safety grip system. To further increase operator comfort when entering or exiting the cab, the console tilts backwards.

Service made simple
the inherent productivity of the Volvo ECR50D is not only due to the comfortable operator environment, but also to the market-leading serviceability, ensuring maximum uptime. The side position of the engine, together with the two gas-strut assisted and wide-opening hoods, ensures safe and easy access to all components and service check points from ground level.

Greasing points and filters are also grouped on the same side of the machine. With Volvo’s patented, multifunctional hydraulic oil filter, filtration occurs when the tank is filled or topped up and before the oil returns via the drain lines. The transparent bowl enables easy oil level checks and permits early detection of contamination – allowing preventative maintenance to be carried out before damage occurs.

Plug and play
CJD Equipment is able to supply a selection of perfectly-matched attachments for the ECR50D, increasing its productivity further still, by enabling it to effectively perform a wider range of jobs. All the hydraulic connections are already installed so that the operator can simply plug and play. Using the keypad controls inside the cab, the operator can easily adjust the auxiliary hydraulic flows and benefit from the correct speed and power for optimal attachment operation. The keypad has four pre-programmed, adjustable settings which can be customized to match attachment and individual needs.

By simply pressing the hydraulic quick coupler switch, the operator can easily change tasks and swap attachments without leaving the cab. This quick and efficient system increases versatility and productivity while also meeting the latest safety regulations.
