Loaded up for higher productivity

Right from the start, the EH3500ACII has been engineered for increased productivity. This popular AC-powered hauler can maneuver easily in tight spaces and quickly move down the haul road with steady, highly productive speed on grade. It doesn’t just get work done – it gets more work done.

Product highlights

  • Load height and body volumes
    • Standard body - 18 ft. 6 in. (5.63 m)
    • Struck (SAE) - 96.8 cu. yd. (74 m3)
    • Heaped 2:1 (SAE) - 145.2 cu. yd. (111 m3)
  • New Hitachi AC-drive system delivers better performance, higher uptime and helps significantly reduce maintenance and fuel costs.
  • The Cummins QSK50C diesel engine generates 1491 kW (2,000 hp) at 1,900 rpms and meets EPA Tier 2 emission requirements.
  • Quick stopping power. A service brake-blending feature activates the hydraulic service brake to quickly bring the hauler to a complete stop.
  • New Hitachi-exclusive controller monitors truck system and replaces multiple, outsourced controllers for higher reliability.
  • New 10.5 inch monitor display gives you quick access to key indicators of machine’s performance, warnings and alarms.  The monitor can also be utilized by your technician for quick troubleshooting of various issues on the truck.
AC-drive system

AC-drive system

Hitachi has been in the electrical drive system business for years – first with GTO, now with IGBT. In fact, the technology has successfully been used on bullet trains, locomotives, monorails and commuter electric cars around the world. With the EH3500ACII, Hitachi became the only truck manufacturer in the world to provide its own IGBT controller, alternator and wheel motors. The result is an AC-powered truck that is more productive, maneuvers easily in tight spaces and comfortably handles the haul road with steady speed on grade.

Tough body

Tough body

The Hitachi horizontal stiffener design minimizes stress concentrations by dissipating load shocks over the entire body length. In addition, closely spaced stiffeners provide additional protection by minimizing distances between unsupported areas.

Brake blending

Brake blending

Brake blending, which combines service brakes with electric retarders, is applied automatically through the new AC drive system to stop the hauler. This also gives you the ability to stop the hauler with the retarder pedal only and acts as a hill-hold brake for sure hill-climbing.

Auto retarding control

Auto retarding control

The hauler’s auto retarding control keeps the vehicle’s downhill speed constant within the set range by limiting the maximum vehicle speed. An optional slip-slide control is also available by regulating the traction motor torque for stable travel.

Fast-fill system

Fast-fill system

The fast-filling system, a provided standard on the left side of the radiator, gives you direct access at the ground level for fast feeding of lubricants, grease, hydraulic oil and engine oil. Couplers are optional.

Load weighing system

Load weighing system

The hauler’s payload-monitoring system is fully integrated to the monitoring system on the truck (and therefore your Mine Management System*) for prompt reporting of tons moved, cycle times, cycle count and distance.

*Requires optional equipment.

Easy access ladder

Easy access ladder

A new, easy-access diagonal ladder provides a safe, easy-to-use way to access the cab.
