Featured equipment: Hitachi EX1200 Excavator for sale

The Hitachi EX1200 Excavator is the new-generation of Hitachi large excavators. This giant hydraulic excavator is designed specifically for large-scale mines, quarries and civil-engineering projects. 

This cutting-edge, technological powerhouse comes complete with a high-power engine that you have come to expect from a Hitachi excavator. The water-cooled, 4-cycle, 6-cylinder in line, turbo-charged direct injection diesel engine puts out an impressive 567 kW (760 HP) at 1 800 min-1 (rpm). 

Advanced hydraulics

The advanced hydraulic technologies are key to increased productivity and machine life. The two boom modes, 'comfort mode' and 'powerful mode', can be utilised according to the requirements of the job. This new technology is crucial to extending the service life of any excavator. 'Comfort mode' is utilised when the operator is seeking the most efficient excavation, while the 'powerful mode' can be selected for the heavy jobs that require the most powerful use of this machinery. The new hydraulic technologies also lead to increased mobility, sharpened steering and increased traction force. 

The undercarriage of the EX1200 has been strengthened to significantly increase durability. Track links have been enlarged to increase strength and reliability on more challenging surfaces, and the travel devices have been compact-designed to increase mobility and reduce costly downtime. The new, spacious operator cab has been ergonomically designed to not only increase comfort, but reduce operator fatigue. 

Safety features

The EX1200 comes with an array of increased safety features, including wide sidewalks and large handrails, pilot control shut-off lever, a rugged cab with integrated head guards and much more. The excavator's environmentally friendly design not only meets but exceeds emission regulations.

The Hitachi EX1200 is rightly one of the most popular new excavators on the market. This powerful yet versatile excavator has operator comfort, safety, environmental impact and increased productivity and efficiency at heart.
