Hitachi’s new Zaxis-5 Series excavators
Hitachi Construction Machinery Co. says its new Zaxis-5 Series excavators — ZX160LC-5, ZX180LC-5, ZX210-5, and ZX201LC-5 — feature Isuzu Interim Tier 4 engines that deliver high productivity with fuel efficiency. A muffler filter helps reduce emissions by capturing air pollutants. Auto shutdown enhances fuel consumption and reduces noise, exhaust emissions, and carbon dioxide. These powerful, medium-sized excavators feature hydraulics with multiple sensors that instantly feed automatic micro-adjustments for increased hydraulic power to maintain steady movements.
Three work modes allow an operator to choose a digging style that fits the job. HP (high-productivity) delivers more power and faster hydraulic response; P (power) delivers a balance of power, speed, and fuel economy; and E (auto economy) maximizes fuel efficiency.
A multi-language LCD monitor in the cab tracks scheduled maintenance and provides diagnostic codes to assist in troubleshooting. Welded bulkheads within the boom resist torsional stress for unsurpassed durability. Booms, arms, and mainframes are warranted for three years or 10,000 hours, whichever comes first.
Tungsten-carbide-coated wear surfaces protect the 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 extend grease intervals to 500 hours for the arm/boom joint and 100 hours for the bucket joint. Vertical spin-on fuel and engine oil filters simplify service. Filters and checkpoints are conveniently grouped and centralized lube banks are easy to reach. All ZX Dash-5 excavators come standard with three years of ZXLink Ultimate, enabling 24/7 online access to machine location, health, use, fuel consumption, and other information.
