ECA Toolfast enhances its profile with Volvo

ECA Toolfast has taken delivery of its first Volvo EC15BXR compact excavator

Coventry based ECA Toolfast has taken delivery of its first Volvo EC15BXR compact excavator with a further two units on order as it expands its equipment portfolio.

Established in 1979, ECA Toolfast has developed its core business for the sales, hire and authorized repairs for premium quality small tools. With fully equipped and stocked outlets in Coventry and Leicester, the company moved into small plant hire five years ago with the appointment of Hire Manager, Dean Whitehouse. Wishing to further enhance and develop its hire division, ECA Toolfast has switched to Volvo to complement the high quality range of power tools it markets. “It was the approach by SM Plant Sales in demonstrating the qualities of the Volvo mini that persuaded us to make the change,” commented Mr Whitehouse. “Since taking the first machine last month, we’ve been really impressed with the quality of build and the machine’s performance, with customers asking to hire it again out of preference. We’ve subsequently ordered two more units for the fleet.”

As with all Volvo construction equipment, the compact excavator line develops impressive levels of performance and technological advances. This includes a variable flow power control hydraulic system for precise control under all load conditions and safety features such as Roll Over Protection Structure (ROPS), Tip Over Protection Structure (TOPS) and Falling Objects protection Structure (FOPS) contribute to outstanding operator safety.

All components and service points are within easy reach on the EC15BXR. For instance, the Volvo patented tilting counterweight allows easy access to the engine. The one-piece cab floor makes it easy to reach the spool valves while the hoses supplying the boom are fitted externally along the boom, keeping all connections within easy reach.
