Hitachi Construction Machinery has revealed plans to showcase its EH1100-5 rigid-frame dump truck at the 2014 MENA Mining Show in Dubai, UAE.

The 65-tonne class monster was released on the global market in April 2014. As the latest version of the EH1100, the model features an improved operator environment, increased serviceability, and a greater payload, according to Hitachi.

However, despite the EH110-5’s various enhancements, the machine also retains a number of successful legacy features. Like its predecessor, the dump truck boasts long-life NeoconE/Helium suspension strut fluid, a robotically-welded box section frame, and trailing-arm front suspension.

Middle East customers will also be offered a choice of Tier 2 engines: the MTU Series 2000 and the Cummins QSK23. The truck’s body capacity is 41.5m3 when heaped.

The MENA Mining Show will take place at Dubai World Trade Centre from 21 to 22 October 2014. Hitachi will occupy Booth #C44.
