Another Volvo heads toward David Smith Contractors Ltd

Fraserburgh based David Smith Contractors Ltd has added another EC210C excavator to their increasing fleet of Volvo Construction Equipment products.

Established back in 2002 by Proprietor David Smith, the Company has evolved as a civil engineering and groundworks contractors undertaking bespoke projects for blue chip companies such as Tescos throughout the north of Scotland. Having purchased their first Volvo just three years ago, the Company has added to its portfolio of Volvo equipment with seven articulated haulers, an L120C loading shovel, a compact EC55B and with the latest purchase, two twenty one tonne VolvoEC210C excavators. "We have developed an excellent relationship with team from Volvo and the machines have been reliable and productive as well," explained David Smith. "The opinion of my operators is equally important and they appreciate the high standard of operator comfort and overall performance we've found with the machines."

Volvo C series excavators are powered by Volvo Tier III low-emission engines which contribute to an excellent performance and are well matched to the machine's hydraulics providing high efficiency, rapid dig cycles and low fuel consumption. The EC210C is installed with a 6 litre engine developing 150 nett hp. An advanced mode control system ensures the maximum possible hydraulic horsepower available is delivered at a constant engine speed under varying load conditions. In addition, boom and arm geometry provide highly competitive digging forces and lifting capacities, which makes for faster work cycles. Hose rupture valves are fitted as standard to the boom and dipper cylinders as are quick fit hydraulics and a hammer/shear service.

Volvo Construction Equipment Ltd market wheeled loaders, articulated haulers, hydraulic excavators, graders, Volvo Compact Equipment and Volvo road machinery products. Nine strategically placed customer support centres and a network of compact equipment dealers ensure high quality customer support throughout Great Britain.
