Hitachi: EX2600-6

By |  April 24, 2013

excavate-hitachi-300Hitachi’s EX2600-6 excavator is heavier than its predecessor and has more engine hp, and the backhoe version has increased bucket capacity. Estimated productivity increases are 13 percent for the short-reach backhoe and 4 percent for the loader version. Loading time for the truck has also been lessened, Hitachi says. The bucket capacity for the backhoe version has been increased from 19.6 to 22.2 cu. yd. The reach of the backhoe front attachment has been shortened and the engine output boosted to achieve higher productivity. Because the engine output has been boosted by 7 percent, the cooling performance of the radiator and oil cooler has been increased as well to protect the engine and hydraulic devices, thanks to the use of one 60-in. fan rather than two 44-inch ones.
