True five-tonne excavator

The ECR50D is Volvo’s first true five-tonne excavator, replacing the ECR48C. Compared to its predecessor, the ECR50D packs extra weight and brings a longer under carriage offering better stability, which means a 1.8m ‘long’ dipper arm becomes standard fitment.

A new hydraulic valve block offers improved feel and precision, and a fuel-efficient Volvo D2.6A four-cylinder engine brings a useful power increase too, with 41.8hp. Eco plus preset engine rpm modes and an auto idle function let the operator make the most of the machine’s power and economy.

The short radius machine will make it easy for the business to work in confined spaces, while its powerful blade will be useful for tidying up on-site.

With load sensing, variable displacement hydraulics, plus flow sharing and proportional controls, the ECR50D also brings big machine capability to a compact package. With auxiliary lines and 75-litres/min oil flow, it offers much more than just the ability to dig holes.
