HCM's main product line is hydraulic excavators, with the company manufacturing many models, from medium-sized and mini excavators all the way up to 780-ton ultra-large excavators. HCM also markets wheel loaders, off-road dump trucks and other products made by group companies or in partnership with major manufacturers.

Active in the evolution of machinery and its synergy between 'humans' and 'business' that combines to create rich living spaces, that are more comfortable, highly developed and efficient, HCM believes this view defines the rationale for their existence as well as their identity in society. Proud of their activities, Hitachi Construction Machinery believes their commitment to protecting the environment, improving social capital, and enriching living spaces will continue as long as human society exists.

They achieve this by making their work more congenial and efficient with improved technology and systems - consistently developing and providing the technology, products and services that generate 'new value'.
HCM was established in 1970, when Hitachi, Ltd. spun off its construction machinery division. While still a part of Hitachi Ltd. more than 50 years ago, they were involved in the production of Japan's first mechanical excavator.
Currently, the 58 companies that comprise the HCM Group are using IT as a strategic management resource to provide total solutions for customers' needs. In this way, HCM continues to grow as a strong, global, competitive enterprise.
