Hitachi EX3600-6

For the big Jobs, rely on Hitachi. With years of experience at the coal face, Hitachi are recognised as making productive and reliable large mining excavators capable of operating efficiently for tens of thousands of hours, almost non-stop.

Each Hitachi generation listens to the needs of the work site and gives birth to an even-better new generation, and the EX-6 series of Giant Excavators is no exception. The EX3600-6 is powered by a single engine. The time-proven Cummins diesel engine produces a total of 1 450kW (1 944HP) for handling the big excavation jobs, whilst complying with U.S. EPA Tier II emission regulations.

The EX-6 series also boasts Hitachi's computer-aided Engine-Pump Control (E-P Control) which coaxes optimum efficiency from the engine and hydraulic pumps. This innovative system senses load demand and controls engine and pump output for maximum operating efficiency. The large bucket has been shaped specifically to enhance scooping and loading operations. Its sharp tilt angle also helps boost operating efficiency

The EX-6 also promotes an improved operating environment. Comfortable work stations with ergonomically positioned controls, simplified maintenance and new Hitachi technologies means the EX-6 series gets giant sized jobs done fast.
