AFTER decades of designing and manufacturing world-class technology across its mining range, Hitachi Construction Machinery is continuing to revolutionise the mining industry.
Successfully launched in more than 10 countries, Hitachi’s rear dump truck is based on the generic design of the iconic Euclid product that pioneered the use of rigid dump trucks in global mining and major construction projects. In alignment with Hitachi’s philosophy of quality, the same excellence designed into its leading hydraulic excavator range has now been integrated into its dump
trucks to form the highest quality product with state-of-the-art technology.
Designed and manufactured in the same world-class factory as the renowned EX Series hydraulic excavators, the EH3500ACII and EH4000ACII dump trucks incorporate the latest advancements in innovative engineering to enhance production capabilities.
Featuring lightweight bodies designed to maximise payload capabilities, Hitachi’s dump trucks continue to deliver superior performance and productivity to mining operators and contractors.
The EH3500ACII and EH4000ACII dump trucks incorporate Hitachi’s engineered AC Drive system technology, developed in 1992 and utilised by Japan’s bullet trains. This advanced technology has created superior hauling capabilities that are well recognised among Hitachi products in the mining industry. The AC Drive technology provides unparalleled performance, including higher truck availability, improved gradeability and increased travel speeds, as well as significant reductions in maintenance and operating costs.
Operators benefit from enhanced productivity and lower costs per tonne, resulting in a higher return on investment.
High-powered Cummins engines drive the performance of Hitachi’s dump trucks. The EH3500ACII boasts a Cummins QSKTA50-CE 1491 kilowatt engine and the EH4000ACII includes a Cummins QSKTA60-CE 1864kW engine.
Combined with Hitachi technology, the engines deliver exceptional reliability and reduced fuel consumption to ensure maximum performance.
