Hitachi introduces three new Zaxis Dash 5 excavators: ZX160LC-5, ZX210-5, ZX210LC-5
Tungsten-carbide-coated wear surfaces protect the all-important bucket-to-arm
joint. Reinforced resin thrust plates, grooved bushings, and thermal-coated bucket joints increase arm- and boom-lube intervals to 500 hours. Oil impregnated HN bushings enhance durability and extend grease intervals to 500 hours for the arm and-boom joint, 100 hours for the bucket joint. Reinforced D-channel side frames provide maximum cab and component protection.
As for maintenance, Hitachi makes it easy. Vertical spin-on fuel and engine oil filters simplify service and help minimize messes. Filters and checkpoints are conveniently grouped. Easy-to-reach centralized lube banks help make greasing less messy and time-consuming.
There is easy access for cleaning the condenser and radiator, and replacing consumable parts. And the placement of the cooling package in parallel also aids the cleaning process
Easy-to-check sight gauges and fluid reservoirs, quick-change remote-mounted vertical filters, and extended engine and hydraulic oil-service intervals minimize downtime for periodic maintenance.
All ZX Dash-5 Excavators come standard-equipped with three years of ZXLink™ Ultimate, enabling 24/7 online access to machine location, health, utilization, fuel consumption, and other valuable information for better understanding of costs and jobsite performance. Using ZXLink and the in-cab diagnostic monitor, scheduled maintenance intervals and trouble codes are easy to access.
Setting the benchmark
The Zaxis-5 Models set the benchmark for all-round efficiency with hydraulic systems that allow faster operation, with lower fuel consumption; an increase to the auto-power boost and auto-power lift for delivering an enhanced level of excavating performance and lifting power; and a reinforced undercarriage and strengthened front attachment for added durability in tough working conditions.
