Volvo's fastest 20-ton excavator arrives in PH

Volvo's fastest 20-ton class excavator on the market, the Volvo EC200D recently debuted in the Philippines. Promising to deliver world-class performance, safety, energy efficiency, and service availability, the EC200D is designed to offer significant productivity improvements for various types of construction work like road construction, building, landscaping, and utility work.

All this translates into higher productivity," says AM Muralid
