Excavator specified for demolition

2000 volvo collard 0097

R Collard of Eversley, Hampshire, has taken delivery of the first demolition-specified Volvo EC750E to be sold in Britain.

The 75-tonne excavator is an addition to R Collard’s mixed fleet of mobile plant, and was purchased for a prestigious 12-month demolition contract in west London.

The machine is capable of dismantling disused buildings of up to four storeys as well as multi-storey car parks on an extensive 20-acre site.

The excavator has been specified with a 7.7m boom, a 3.55 dipper arm and a Hills hydraulic hitch, which can facilitate the fitting of a 4cu m heavy-duty bucket and a range of demolition tools including a 7.5-tonne Verachtert shear, which can tackle both concrete and steel.

The EC750E has been equipped with both hammer/shear lines and an X3 rotation circuit to operate a range of hydraulically powered attachments.

It can be programmed with pre-set flows and pressures for the various attachments – for example, the 7.5-tonne shear operates at 800 litres per minute and a working pressure of 350bar.
