Hitachi Construction Machinery Americas Inc. - EH4000AC-3 Rigid Haulers

The EH4000AC-3 combines our time-proven truck technology with our newest and most efficient Advanced IGBT AC-Drive system. It’s one of the most technologically advanced mining trucks in the world, and it helps raise profits by lowering fuel and maintenance costs.

Features & Benefits

Hitachi IGBT System

New-generation Hitachi IGBT system outperforms previous and competitive systems through its simplicity, improved efficiency and enhanced dependability. Unlike all other competitors, the entire AC-drive system is designed, built and supported by Hitachi.

AC-Drive System

New Advanced AC-Drive System delivers better performance, higher uptime and helps significantly reduce maintenance and fuel costs.


The EH3500AC-3 is equipped with a Cummins QSKTA50-CE diesel engine that generates 2,000 hp (1491 kW) at 1,900 rpms and meets Tier 2 EPA emission requirements. (An optional MTU 12V4000 C21 diesel engine is available outside of North America.)


The redesigned frame is designed for longer life. The bolt-on high-arch cross member, combined with new rear axle housing and nose cone designs give the EH3500AC-3 the sturdiest frame of all.


The nominal payload is at a very high level – 200 tons (181 tonnes).
