 The move towards eco-friendly green technology that brought about electric cars has now been extended to large hydraulic excavators.
This new diesel hybrid, made by Japanese firm Komatsu, has an electric motor that captures surplus energy every time it revolves. The stored power is then used to boost engine performance when extra power is needed. 
Designed to operate in sensitive environmental situations, it is quieter and emits less noise than conventional excavators making it more suitable for work in urban surroundings, confined spaces or city streets. Other benefits include reduced CO2 emissions and 25 percent lower fuel use.
