Hitachi Construction Machinery Co., Ltd. (President: Ryuichi Seguchi; Capital: ¥²2,199,050,000) will begin sales of the HST (Hydro Static Transmission) drive system equipped EG70R Full Revolution Rubber Crawler Carrier (6.5t max. load capacity) on June 15.
This machine was developed by our company as a full revolution rubber crawler carrier, and is the second in the EG series after its predecessor, the EG40R. The top part of the body can rotate 360°állowing for dirt discharge from all directions, and with a top speed of 10km/h it is the fastest in its class. This state-of-the-art machine is suited to the recently growing rental market, and was designed to increase work efficiency, reduce maintenance costs, and provide improved reliability and safety. It is especially effective for land preparation on narrow housing lots, and for equipment and earth transport on soft or unprepared ground. Our projected goal for sales is 100 machines/year.
