While equipment built to accommodate urban environments, by generating less noise, vibrations and emission, became more common, super sized equipment that could withstand harsh working conditions in places like giant mines were also developed.
It took eight years to develop this model based on the concept of producing construction equipment with good operating performance and the comfort of a regular car. It was the first wheeled hydraulic excavator that achieved speeds of 49.5km/h in the industry.The combination of a direct transmission while running and hydraulics while operating realized high speed operation, low fuel consumption, and a low noise level. The innovative foldable boom was adapted for the first time.

Since its first emergence in 1951, it took only 50 years for the hydraulic shovel to establish its primary position on construction sites worldwide. Its size ranges from mini to super size depending on the scale of construction, and during the half century, it kept evolving by achieving a minimum rear-swing radius and adapting styles that would work with characteristics of each site. Mirroring the movement of a human hand, a hydraulic shovel will continue to evolve during the 21st century.
