    It's a European thing, just about all of their stuff has those decals.

    To be honest, I never understood it on the excavators. They have them on their backhoes, loaders, pretty sure on their skids as well, makes sense for roading.

    Its probably to keep somebody from running into one at night, or so its easier to see, I dont know either, europeans are a tadbit wierd, but they prolly say the same things about us. but who wouldnt see a 20ton machine? even if it was dark you would see the huge thing..

    I remember how much of a PITA it was with Volvo's power management to the tracks when the boom was being used, that's one and the only complaint I had against them.
    You sure kept your composure, if that was me, I'd be on top of the cab performing my f*ck you dance. :cool2:

    He owned a 290LC with cab guarding 2 buckets and Volvo's kick ass hydraulic bucket quick change system from early 2005-late 2007, but it was sold off, it wasn't as small as a 200 and it wasn't quite a 330.

    I miss it dearly.
