GENSERV unveils new construction workhorses from Volvo Construction Equipment

November 25, 2012

Saturday, 24th November, MUSCAT – General Engineering Services Est. (GENSERV), a leading construction equipment dealership in the Sultanate, has unveiled a trio of high-performance additions to its signature Volvo range of construction machines.

The presentation took place at a launch ceremony held at the InterContinental Muscat on 24th November 2012 – an event that also showcased GENSERV’s emergence as the pre-eminent provider of solutions to Oman’s rapidly expanding construction, mechanical, power and warehousing sectors.

First to take centre stage was a pair of new heavyweight excavators from Volvo, one of the world’s biggest manufacturers of equipment for the construction and related industries. The new EC380D and EC480D excavators from Volvo Construction Equipment are formidable workhorses that will increase productivity at any worksite.


Weighing in the range of 37.8-41.4 T and 47.3-53.1 T respectively, these powerful and reliable machines excel in heavy digging and lifting duties, offering superior cycle times and greater fuel efficiency. Both machines are fitted with Volvo’s latest 13-litre six-cylinder diesel engines which combine with the new hydraulics system to provide exceptional performance and fuel efficiency.

Robust and heavily reinforced to withstand working with high impact materials or demanding terrain, the X-shaped undercarriage features a durable fabricated idler, a large diameter roller and a thicker tooth sprocket and track link for increased component life. An optional heavy-duty full track guard can be fitted for travelling over rough terrain or when working with rock, helping protect the bottom rollers and preventing derailment.

Also sharing the spotlight on the occasion was the equally impressive Volvo L250G wheel loader, the industry’s first in the 35-ton weight class. Designed to match the needs of on-highway trucks, the L250G is purpose built to deliver larger loads in less time – significantly increasing productivity.  Volvo’s latest addition to its large wheel loader range combines the optimal mix of lifting force and traction resulting in high bucket penetration.

The L250G shares the sleek design of the rest of the new G-Series from Volvo, as well as a new engine and driveline system for improved productivity, lower emissions, greater smoothness, serviceability and operator comfort. The L250G also features a powerful Z-Bar loader linkage that allows for high breakout force for digging in hard materials. Its heavy-duty linkage, lift arms and cylinders also offer high lift capacity and rapid hydraulic reaction, resulting in faster work cycles.

“Volvo’s EC380D and EC480D excavators and the L250G wheel loader are powerhouses in their own right that no productivity conscious contractor can do without.  Through their introduction to the Oman market today, GENSERV is living up to its commitment to providing our clients, and the construction industry at large, with the latest equipment and tools they require to meet the increasingly exacting performance and time-related demands of customers. Added to this is GENSERV’s comprehensive post-sales, spare parts, maintenance and repair capability that now encompasses markets across the expanse of the Sultanate, enabling clients to now take full advantage of Volvo’s range of rugged and reliable machines in achieving their performance objectives,” said Mr. Ahmed Rashed, General Manager, GENSERV.
