First Volvo EC750E delivered in Eastern Europe
The new EC750E was launched in the traditional fashion
Polish cement company Cementownia Warta has become the first Eastern European customer to take delivery of the new Volvo EC750E crawler excavator.
Officially unveiled at bauma Munich 2016 in April, the 75tonne crawler excavator is noted for its ability to offer a higher capacity in any application, thanks to what Volvo CE describe as its perfect combination of power and stability.
Based in Pajęczno County, Poland, Cementownia Warta produces cement for road construction, airports and hydraulic structures, such as dams and water power stations. Its machines are required to work long hours while maintaining efficiency, meaning operator comfort and extended uptime are key requirements. It was for these reasons that the Volvo EC750E was the perfect fit.
The EC750E offers innovative electro-hydraulic technology, optimised to operate in harmony with the robust engine, delivering greater operator control and productivity.
The model’s Volvo cab is said to deliver a superior operator experience with a low-noise environment for optimum operator productivity. Ergonomically positioned interfaces – including the joysticks, keypad and LCD monitor – and clear all-around visibility ensure maximum efficiency and ease of use. The spacious cab features ample storage and leg room, 12 air-conditioner vents and an adjustable seat, allowing the operator to remain fresh, alert and focused.

A relationship built on trust“The decision to choose a Volvo machine was an obvious and natural choice for us,” says Sławomir Goszczak, transport and machinery manager at Warta. “We bought our first Volvo unit in 2008 – an L120F wheeled loader – and have since gone on to own a whole fleet of its machines, culminating in our most recent purchase: the EC750E.”
In addition to the new excavator, Warta owns three other Volvo crawler excavators (two EC700C units and one EC290C), four Volvo wheeled loaders (L350F, L220F, L120F, L120G) 11 articulated haulers (A40Es and A40Gs) and one Volvo backhoe loader BL71.
“With each subsequent purchase and each year of cooperation, we have become more and more sure that Volvo is the best choice,” Goszczak continues. “Volvo offers excellent advice before the purchase, timely delivery, excellent warranty service and, above all, very high reliability of the machines. We are extremely pleased with the purchase of this new, innovative machine, and are already planning further purchases.”
The new machine was delivered and mounted in the last week of September and is now being used to load the company’s A40 haulers in the Warta limestone quarry.
