R 260




"...well over one thousand components..."

Released at MINExpo in 1996 the R 260 was the largest truck in Euclid-Hitachi's line of diesel electric haulers. Our 1:50 scale brass miniature, which comprises well over one thousand components, is now being released onto the collector’s market. The miniature includes the 2500hp (1864 kW) Detroit Diesel - MTU S-4000 series power pack.

Euclid R 260 We are currently building miniatures for Euclid-Hitachi representing both the pilot truck, displayed at MINExpo 96, and production rigs which include mine operator specified requirements and production standard modifications. All available options and changes will be made available to collectors.
