Hitachi EX8000 Loading Shovels

The worlds largest hydraulic excavator, the EX800 from Hitachi weighs in at an incredible 805 tonne and is capable of loading a 300-ton dump truck in only four passes.

Powered by the time-proven twin Cummins diesel engine, the EX8000 produces a total of 2 800kW (3 800 hp) for handling the giant excavation jobs.

Hitachi's computer-aided Engine-Pump Control (E-P Control) coaxes optimum efficiency from the engine and hydraulic pumps to sense load demand and control engine and pump output for maximum operating efficiency.

Available in loading shovel specification, the 40m3 bucket will keep your dump truck drivers busy all day trying to keep up with this giant earthmover. 

In mining, cost efficiency is also important. Hitachi's excavators provide one of the lowest cost-per-ton options for moving materials in their class. With the ability to keep running for 24 hours straight, these machines have exceptional durability. 

Low maintenance cost and long life make for machines that give you significant savings.
