New Volvo Excavators added to our hire fleet

Oct 13 in Company, Plant and tool hire & shops


Shorts Plant and Tool hire have added two new VOLVO ECR88D Excavators to their fleet this week.

These new 8 tonne excavators are now available for hire with top specifications, including:

  • Fully automatic Geith quick hitch – this gives the user the ability to change the digging buckets at just the flick of a switch.
  • Comfort – the climate control and majority of switches are integrated in one centralised keypad on the right hand console.
  • Excellent visibility – slim cab pillars and large windows offer the operator all round visibility.
  • Security – our machines have been fitted with a security keypad which means the machine will only start when the correct pin is entered.
  • Auto idle – this reduces the engine speed to an idle ‘tick over’ when the controls are inactive for more than five seconds, in turn reducing fuel consumption and engine noise.
  • Fuel consumption – the Premium Tier 4 / stage IIIB Volvo engine delivers a superior performance with low fuel consumption.
  • Floating dozer – optional blade float function allows the blade to go over the ground for better levelling control and fuel efficiency.
  • Grapple facility – our machines are fitted with a bracket to allow a 3/2 finger grapple to be fitted.
  • Breaking facility – all of our machines are piped to allow fitting of a hydraulic breaker attachment.

What more could you need to get the job down efficiently and in great comfort!
