1 . Work anywhere, anytime

The EC18 Electric boasts both low noise and zero-tailpipe emissions, creating new opportunities for your business. Operate in noise sensitive areas and out of standard hours, as well as on low-carbon projects and indoors, without the need for costly fume extraction systems or being restricted by operator time limits.

2 . Create a better work environment

​Operators will experience the world-class cab for which Volvo is renowned, including large entrance, superior visibility and comfort levels, further enhanced thanks to a dramatic reduction in noise, vibration and heat, and no exhaust fumes. This all contributes towards a quieter and cleaner jobsite, improving communication and working conditions for all personnel.

3 . Small but tough

With a variable undercarriage that retracts to less than 1m and expands up to 1.35m, combined with a reduced machine height to less than 2.35m, you can count on the compact excavator to deliver superior performance when working in confined spaces. The machine design ensures that the right frame corner, swing post and cylinder stay within the tracks’ width, resulting in maximum visibility and a reduced risk of machine damage when working alongside obstacles.

4 . Built with durability in mind

The unique high-profile counterweight design is made from three strong pieces of cast iron which wrap around the rear of the machine, protecting all vital components. All-round steel panels, recessed 10mm from the counterweight and hoses routed inside the boom offer further protection.
