Volvo’s EC950EL Saves 20% Fuel For Sagar Cements
“With the EC950EL, we lowered the fuel consumption by 20% compared to similar class excavators from other brands — the EC950EL is delivering cost savings for us with every ton,” said K. V. Ramana, Senior Vice President of Sagar Cements Limited. “The Volvo excavator’s excellent performance and wide range of features have also helped us keep up with production deadlines.”
“When we heard about the new EC950EL excavators last year, we jumped on the opportunity to be the first in India, and in the cement industry, to try them out,” Ramana said. “The EC950EL’s excellent fuel-efficiency, top-notch performance and Volvo’s strong brand were the main reasons why we chose this machine.”
The EC950EL features a wide track gauge, long track length, a retractable undercarriage and optimized counterweight. The excavator’s heavy duty structures and reinforced 6 m3 bucket result in a well-balanced, solid machine. All machine interfaces — including joysticks, keypad and LCD monitor — are ergonomically positioned and designed for optimum control and efficiency. For increased versatility, the attachment management system enables the operator to use pre-set hydraulic flow and pressure through the in-cab monitor.
