Billed as best-in-class in every category, New Holland's EH Series excavators are said to have the highest breakout force and lifting capacity, plus ease of operation. The 14-ton EH130 LC is a short-radius machine, and the 16-ton EH160 LC and 21-ton EH215 LC are conventional units. By pressing the Power Boost button on the control lever, an operator can deliver the highest breakout force for as long as necessary. When full lifting power is required, the Heavy Lift mode increases pressures by 10 percent with no time limit. The units are said to have the largest cabs in the industry. Estimated list prices: $139,000 to $177,000.
