Blackwood Plant buys new excavators for its fleet

Blackwood Plant has purchased a further three EC55Bs and a Volvo EC290C excavator.

The EC290C excavator is powered by a Volvo seven litre 208 hp low emission Tier III engine which is exactly matched to the hydraulic system’s components. The undercarriages have been widened on a 5.5 tonne EC55B and a 14 tonne EC140BLC and the modified machines now feature 1m wide and 1.2m wide pads respectively.
