Use Boom Float to improve cycle times, fuel efficiency and more

Operators have plenty to manage. Features that make a job simpler and more efficient are always welcome. Volvo Boom Float relieves pump pressure from the cylinder when lowering the boom, reallocating pressure appropriately for faster cycle times, more accurate grading and improved fuel efficiency. Watch for Boom Float operating tips. 


The Volvo EC350E and EC380E were put up against two industry leaders to see how each would perform in terms of productivity and fuel efficiency. The four comparable machines were equipped with fuel meters and put through the same test, loading trucks at maximum power. The results were used to calculate estimated time and cost to move 551,156 U.S. tons (500,000 metric tons) of material. Calculations are based on 50-minute work hours, 8 hours per day.
