Volvo Introduces its First Dedicated Material Handler for North America

Updated: Apr 6, 2020

Designed for the waste and recycling industries, the new EW240E material handler from Volvo CE is a powerful and reliable machine for your most challenging work conditions.

“This is not an example of a manufacturer simply taking an existing machine and modifying it to fit a market," said Volvo CE Product Manager Matthew McLean. "The EW240E was developed specifically for the waste and recycling segment. With a newly-designed center frame mounted on a reinforced undercarriage with nine-foot axles and extra-wide outriggers, the new material handler is ideal for medium-duty applications such as handling waste material blocks and loading and unloading scrap.”

Built for Productivity

The 26-ton EW240E material handler has a 173-horsepower Tier 4 Final Volvo D6 engine. With a straight boom measuring 21 feet, 4 inches and a 16-foot, 5-inch gooseneck arm, the machine has a maximum reach of 36 feet, 9 inches.

Designed to keep productivity and uptime high, the EW240E material handler is ideal for applications requiring optimum reach and visibility. Volvo manufactured its dedicated upper structure and reinforced undercarriage to withstand the forces in scrap sorting applications.
