In March 2022, Hitachi Construction Machinery dissolved its relationship with John Deere and established Hitachi Construction Machinery Americas as the regional headquarters for the Americas. Since then, we’ve worked hard to build a strong foundation in the Americas — building a better experience for dealers and customers. The change has also meant new products with features engineered to set us apart from the competition.

Our product manager for excavators, Patrick Baker, met with Bryan Furnace, host of “The Dirt,” to talk about what it meant to launch nearly 20 new products, build a new headquarters in Georgia, United States, and expand the dealer network in just two short years from the separation. Plus, get his insights as he walks through the details of our excavator designs. Watch here.
