Volvo demolition machine spotted in Sweden

Digger Blogger | 20:08, Thu March 15 2012

Regular reader and fellow member of top European machinery website Maskinisten.net Conny Kolsjo, spotted this demolition specification Volvo ECR305CL and has kindly shared these photos with us here on the Digger Blog.

Conny spotted this machine at his local Volvo dealership Swecon, in Stockholm. The machine is owned by a Swedish demolition company who are aptly named Destroy AB.

These specialist demolition machines have a strong connection with the UK, with the demolition attachments being designed by Ipswich based Kocurek, who worked closely with Volvo Construction Equipment GB during the conversion job in what was a world first back in 2010. The machine is seen here in digging set up, but with its long reach arm attached the machine can raise a tool weighing anything up to 2.5 tons to a height of 21 metres.

This innovative conversion job certainly caused some waves when it was officially launched, and at the time this 50 ton machine was indeed shortlisted for a global demolition award.

The Digger Blog thanks Conny for sharing these photos with us from the Maskinisten website.
