Hitachi are but 1 of 4 manufacturers of machines of this class & larger.
O&K along with Syncrude designed the RH-400 - 1000 Metric Ton machine. Not many built so far, Some workinh iron ore in Australian/Chinese mines.
Liebherr 8900 seems to be last cab off the rank - but so far well recieved.
KOMATSU/DEMAG appears to be the front runner in all mining shovels.
How do you find out availablity & run cost figures??
