The worldwide hydraulic excavator population for mining shovels with metric ton payload ratings of 20 mt and larger is nearly 5,500. Parker Bay’s Database tracks all of these active machines, along with those that are out of service to bring the total to just over 7,200 hydraulic excavators/shovels. These are classified by the size classes below from the 20-30 mt class up to the largest hydraulic excavators with 77 metric ton payload ratings. A number of OEM’s produce mining shovels of this size with both backhoe and front-shovel configurations.
