Features & Benefits

Comfortable cab

The EH1100-5's economical operation makes it a more valuable asset for your operations. You'll get better performance, higher reliability and significant reduction in maintenance and operating costs.

Efficient engine

New, highly efficient Cummins QSK23 engine with an advanced aluminum cooling package available for all markets. The MTU-12V2000 diesel engine is also available outside of North America. Both engines are EPA Tier 2 certified with 760 SAE gross HP.

Access system

Hitachi upgraded the previous "both side vertical ladders" to an improved access system that features inclined steps, making it easier and quicker to get on board.

"Fast Fuel" option

The EH1100-5 offers you quicker refueling with a low pressure "Fast Fuel" option that uses the truck's standard fuel tank.

Upgraded transmission

We've upgraded the transmission to the Allison H6620A with Shift Energy Management (SEM) system. The SEM system reduces engine torque during transmission shifts, delivering longer drivetrain life and increased operator comfort.

Advanced frame

The EH1100-5's frame is the strongest in its class. It features a unique trailing-arm suspension that minimizes frame stress and fatigue and provides lower tire wear and better steering.
