Volvo adds three new models to its wheeled excavator lineup

The latest wheeled excavators from Volvo Construction Equipment – the short swing EWR150E and EWR170E, and the conventional swing EW220E – give contractors three new models to choose from to take advantage of the versatility and mobility offered by wheeled machines. "Wheeled excavators are underutilized in North America, and contractors are missing out on the benefits they bring, especially in applications like roadbuilding and in urban utility work," said Matt McLean, product manager, wheeled excavators at Volvo Construction Equipment. "They can travel on their own up to 22 mph from site to site, even towing a trailer, rather than being loaded on a lowboy. Wheeled machines also have lighter footprints and don't damage hard surfaces like their tracked counterparts. That equates to less cleanup and lower labour costs. We really see these wheeled machines as an opportunity for contractors to rethink the way they're building their fleets."

Revised weight regulations in Ontario behind the design of new vacuum excavator truck

Regulations focused on various types of trucks and equipment in the province of Ontario have had a small loophole in them for quite some time – a fact discovered recently by the Provincial Government during a licensing review that was undertaken to raise fees on heavy commercial vehicles. For owners of vacuum excavators, the loss of that loophole may mean a loss of payload, which would mean a loss of efficiency. One long-standing Ontario dealer, Joe Johnson Equipment (JJE), took the concerns expressed by its customers straight to the manufacturer, Vactor Manufacturing, which has responded by developing a truck that can meet regulations both in Ontario and throughout other regions where operators face weight-limit challenges.
