Thor Lillehovde (born 3 April 1948) is a Norwegian politician for the Labour Party.
He was born in Ringsaker as a son of forest labourer Sigmund Lillehovde (1920–1989) and housewife Gerd Elvsveen (1921–). His education ended with vocational school in 1966, and he was subsequently hired by Standard telefon og kabelfabrikk. From 1969 to 1991 he worked in the company Hymas which produced excavators.
Standard Telephones and Cables Ltd was a British telephone, telegraph, radio, telecommunications, and related equipment R&D manufacturer. During its history, STC invented and developed several groundbreaking new technologies including pulse code modulation (PCM) and optical fibres.
Excavators (hydraulic) are heavy construction equipment consisting of a boom, dipper, bucket and cab on a rotating platform known as the "house". The house sits atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. They are a natural progression from the steam shovels and often mistakenly called power shovels. All movement and functions of a hydraulic excavator are accomplished through the use of hydraulic fluid, with hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic motors. Due to the linear actuation of hydraulic cylinders, their mode of operation is fundamentally different from cable-operated excavators which use winches and steel ropes to accomplish the movements.
Lillehovde became a board member of Brumunddal Labour Party in 1977, serving six years. He later served on the board of Hedmark Labour Party from 1986 to 1990. He was elected as a deputy member of Ringsaker municipal council in 1979, and then as a regular member in 1983. In 1987 he was re-elected and became deputy mayor, and then served as mayor from 1991 to 2007. He has served as a deputy representative to the Parliament of Norway from Hedmark during the terms 1997–2001, 2009–2013 and 2013–2017.
