EX8000-6 – key specifications:

  • Engine rated power (kW) – 2x 1 450 kW (2x 1 940 HP)
  • Operating weight (kg) – 811 000 kg
  • Backhoe bucket ISO heaped – 38.0-43 m³
  • Max. digging depth (mm) – 13 800 mm
  • Bucket digging force (kN) ISO – 2 230.0

A large central service area and folding stairs with wide steps make maintenance easy. Wearable parts can quickly be replaced to ensure the EX8000-6 can keep working reliably 24/7, particularly in remote locations.
