With an operating weight of 260,140 pounds and a 740-horsepower Cummins QSK23-C engine, the excavator is electronically controlled for optimum fuel-to-air ratio for clean, efficient combustion. The excavator has a digging depth of 26 feet, 3 inches, a bucket digging force of 125,540 pounds, and a bucket capacity of 8.76-cubic-yards.

A redesigned hydraulic system provides the operator with “super fine touch” and controllability, while improved pump flow minimizes fuel consumption. The strengthened undercarriage is purpose built for quarries and mines and is equipped with covers to protect the travel motors and hoses against damage from rocks.

Inside the newly designed cab, a single piece right side glass allows for more space and a wider field of view. A 7-inch LCD display allows the operator to select personal machine preferences and monitor crucial data.

Power and work mode selection, self-diagnostics, optional rear-view camera, maintenance checklists, start-up machine security, and video functions were integrated into the cluster to improve machine versatility and operator productivity.
