Hitachi launches new excavators


Hitachi Construction Machinery has launched two new ultra-large hydraulic excavators. Designed to increase production on large-scale mining projects, the EX5600-6 and EX2600-6 succeed the older EX5500-6 and EX2500-6 models.

The bucket capacity has been increased in both models to boost production: from 29m3 to 34m3 on the EX5600-6; from 15m3 to 17m3 on the backhoe version of the EX2600-6; and from 27m3 to 29m3 on the loading shovel version of the EX5600-6. Other changes include shortening of the reach of the front attachment, a boost in engine output that increases productivity, and an increase in the cooling performance of the radiator and oil cooler. Both new models have the same types of engines as their predecessors. Electrical motor-driven versions of the EX5600-6 and EX2600-6 will also be made available.

Greg Smith, manager, heavy and mining equipment at Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe), said: "The two new machines complement the Hitachi EX8000-6, EX3600-6 and EX1900-6 models, which are highly valued by major mining companies for their high levels of productivity, availability and reliability. Total sales of the EX5600-6 and EX2600-6, including both engine types and the electrical motor, are expected to reach 100 machines a year."
