  • Volvo ec15

    Hi , new here , thanks for the add 👍
    Looking to buy a Volvo ec15 2013 1800 hrs , to work alongside my micro when access isnít restricted.
    Is this a good machine ? Reliable ? Recommended? Or donít touch with a barge pole ?
    The machine it self seems good and strong , runs well , has some play in the dipper pins and bucket pins , a lot of sideways movement in the dipper rams , could I just shim them ? Never changed pins before .
    Iíve read through some past threads , seen the access issues for starter motor eta !

    Welcome .. they are not bad wee diggers .. decent low center of gravity and fairly rugged .. do throw up problems though but all documented here .. no machine is perfect .. but I'd tend to reccommend Kubota over these .. but you will pay the extra money they command
    Please don't PM me for plant advice.. thanks .. Post in the forum where I will gladly help, as will many of our contributors.. as the info and responses will help everyone else, which is why we exist

      Well I brought the machine so itís fingers crossed now 😀 seems really good so far though.
      anybody got a link to a maintenance manual or even just a parts catalogue with diagrams for this machine please ??
