We work hard to provide you with a range of large excavators that work hard too. Our Zaxis 50- to 87-tonne machines can operate for 24 hours a day in the most challenging environments, for earthmoving, construction, mining and quarrying operations. We’ve developed a range of R machines specifically for quarrying, reinforced with additional features for tough conditions. We’re also renowned for the 120- to 800-tonne EX mining models (backhoe or front shovel), which have an exceptional loading and excavating capacity. With powerful yet economical engines, on-board satellite communication systems and easily accessible inspection points, you can rely on Hitachi large excavators to work reliably, with low running costs.
