Volvo EC210Ds Saves Costs for Trans-Sumatra Highway Project

Pair of Volvo EC210D hydraulic excavators is hard at work helping to build the first highway in Lampung province, Indonesia. The 140.9-km Bakauheni-Terbanggi Besar toll road is part of the Trans-Sumatra Toll Road, which will connect Lampung in the south to Aceh in the north along the east of Sumatra Island.
The EC210D excavators are helping to load and unload 1,200 tons of stones to build the base course of the Trans-Sumatra Toll Road. Working between five to 12 hours a day, depending on the rain, the EC210Ds also help with land preparation work and lifting materials for the road construction. Designed to increase productivity and reduce fuel consumption, the robust EC210D crawler excavator features a maximum bucket capacity of 1.22 m3, a maximum slew speed of 12.3 r/min and a maximum slew torque of 76.7 kNm. The EC210D is equipped with the reliable and powerful Volvo D5E engine. Yustanto leased the two EC210Ds from Indonesian rental company PT Teladan Langgeng Jaya.
The EC210D can be equipped with either a top or side mounted Volvo hydraulic breaker, built to break even most demanding materials, delivering consistent power and high breaking force. The Volvo-designed hydraulic breaker/shear piping and quick coupler piping option provide optimum flow to the hydraulic attachments. State-ofthe- art auxiliary lines allow the correct flow and pressure for special attachments.
