23,000 trees grown for one year would capture 460 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere – this is the same annual carbon saving as the new EX2000-7 ultra-large mining excavator compared to the previous EX1900-6!

The largest Hitachi dump truck (EH4000AC-3) can carry 221 tonnes, the equivalent weight of a blue whale and three double-decker buses. And the Hitachi EX8000 mining excavator can fill this dump truck in just five passes!

A 30m hole could fit six giraffes standing on top of each other – this is also the maximum depth of the telescopic arms fitted to Hitachi special application excavators.
