Excavator EKG-10Р with a bucket 8 m3 and increased lifting force up to 110 tons;
Excavator EKG-8УС with a bucket capacity of 8 m3 and extended work equipment (boom length of 16.5 m) for loading rocks to vehicles that are at ground level;
Excavator EKG-5У with bucket capacity of 5 m3 with an even more extended work equipment (boom length of 20.6 m) designed for passing working trenches, working off high ledges, loading rocks to vehicles placed on the overlying horizon.
