Four new Volvo EC210D excavators are said to be taking PT Sumber Multi Rejeki’s work to the next level

A rental and general contractor company in Surabaya, East Java, already relies on some of the leading machines from Volvo Construction Equipment, as it excavates limestone to meet Indonesia’s infrastructure demands. But four new additions are said to be taking the company’s work to the next level.

Over the past decade, Indonesia has made huge leaps forward as it overhauls its infrastructure, and with it, demand for cement and minerals like gypsum and limestone have skyrocketed. To meet the growing demand, PT Sumber Multi Rejeki, a rental and general contractor, which includes oil and gas, mining, and quarrying services, is relying on the quality, strength and durability of a fleet of machines from Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE).

“Our machines are used for at least eight hours a day, every day of the week,” said Soetikno Nyoto Setiadi, owner and director of PT Sumber Multi Rejeki. “We need a high-performing fleet, so that’s why we choose Volvo.”

PT Sumber Multi Rejeki recently added four new EC210D crawler excavators to its existing fleet of Volvo machines, including an EC210B LR excavator, one EC210B prime excavator, one EC55B Pro excavator and two L120F wheeled loaders.

Onsite since March 2019, the EC210D excavators work at a quarry in Surabaya. Three of the EC210D are used with the HB21 breaker attachment, while the fourth unit is used with a bucket. The Volvo HB21 breaker attachment features a breaker weight of 1,739kg and a blow frequency of up to 600bpm.

Designed to increase productivity and reduce fuel consumption, the robust EC210D crawler excavator features a maximum bucket capacity of 1.22m³, a maximum slew speed of 12.3r/min and a maximum slew torque of 76.7kNm. The EC210D is equipped with a reliable and powerful Volvo D5E engine.

The EC210D can be equipped with either a top or side mounted Volvo hydraulic breaker, built to break even most demanding materials, delivering consistent power and high breaking force. The Volvo-designed hydraulic breaker/shear piping and quick coupler piping option provide optimum hydraulic attachments flow. State-of-the-art auxiliary lines allow the correct flow and pressure for special attachments.

PT Sumber Multi Rejeki purchased its fleet of Volvo machines from Indotruck Utama Surabaya, one of Volvo CE’s dealers in Indonesia.

“The quarry in Surabaya is challenging for machines, so every machine we use needs to be extremely manoeuvrable,” Setiadi said. “The EC210D provides exceptional control in grading and combined operations so that operators experience the smoothest and easiest movement when travelling and lifting.”
