Sumitomo Excavators

 
 
 
Sumitomo presents the world with an excavator that combines the latest technology with increased productivity, lower running costs and increased environmental protection.
With fuel savings up to and exceeding 20%, the latest Sumitomo LEGEST series hydraulic excavator won the prestigious Japanese “Energy Conservation Award” in 2008 and the “Good Design” Award for 2007 - 2008. These awards puts Sumitomo's advanced technology on the same level as the Toyota Prius, a world-renowned hybrid car. The integration of the newly-developed “SPACE 5” Isuzu 4HK1X engine and the new Sumitomo intelligent hydraulic system (SIH:S) improves fuel efficiency, engine output and torque.
