Welcome back to another video. Today we have got the top 5 largest excavators in the world. 00:14 KOMATSU PC8000, 02:38 LIEBHERR R9800, 03:53 HITACHI EX8000, 05:20 TEREX RH400, 06:51 CATERPILLAR 6090 FS. Excavators are heavy construction equipment consisting of a boom, dipper, bucket and cab on a rotating platform known as the "house". The house sits atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. They are a natural progression from the steam shovels and often mistakenly called power shovels. All movement and functions of a hydraulic excavator are accomplished through the use of hydraulic fluid, with hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic motors. Due to the linear actuation of hydraulic cylinders, their mode of operation is fundamentally different from cable-operated excavators which use winches and steel ropes to accomplish the movements.
