Hitachi puts operators in control of its latest range of Zaxis-7 medium excavators
The new Hitachi ZX130-7 and ZX135US-7 Stage-V compliant models provide owners with opportunities to increase profits and reduce costs. Their enhanced comfort and safety features allow operators to feel at ease in the cab while performing productively.
Improve your profit
The impressive fuel economy of the new-look ZX130-7 and ZX135US-7 excavators means that they deliver up to 9% less fuel consumption than the previous models. This is achieved with the help of Hitachi’s industry-leading HIOS V hydraulic system.
Life-cycle costs are reduced with the new Stage V-compliant engine, which does not require an SCR system. This eliminates the need for urea, filter replacements and associated maintenance. The all-new ECO gauge also allows operators to control fuel efficiency and reduce costs.
In addition, attachments are quickly changed using the enhanced attachment support system on the monitor. This gives the operator greater control and the excellent versatility of the Zaxis-7 excavators can boost your profits by working on a wider range of projects.
Feel the difference
Operators will enjoy working in the perfect working environment with Hitachi’s redesigned, state-of-the-art Zaxis-7. The ultra-spacious ZX130-7 and ZX135US-7 offer the ultimate in comfort and quality, as well as some of the lowest noise levels in the market and 16% less vibration (ZX130-7) than the previous generation. The cab of the ZX135US-7 has a 15cm wider door opening and an enlarged interior, with increased legroom for greater comfort.
Easy operation comes from the new ergonomic design of the console and switches, and convenient access to controls. The synchronised motion between the seat and console ensures operators feel less tired at the end of the working day. The improved pedal layout and ample head clearance help to make this the most spacious Hitachi cab yet.
To enhance safety, Hitachi Zaxis-7 excavators offer a superior view of the job site. The Aerial Angle camera system provides an exceptional 270-degree bird’s-eye view, and operators can choose from six image options to view the machine’s immediate environment.
New LED work lights and a windscreen wiper with an increased sweeping area enable operators to work with greater confidence in difficult conditions.
The ZX130-7 and ZX135US-7 excavators have been built to last and tested rigorously at Hitachi’s dedicated facilities in Japan. A wide range of new components have been fitted to further enhance their reliability, while improvements to the undercarriage have been made for increased durability.
Uptime is further maximised by the priority given to easy maintenance and cleaning. For example, the expanded radiator cover on the ZX135US-7 accommodates a larger battery, and provides easy access to the radiator net and air cleaner filter.
The wide range of Hitachi after-sales services help owners to feel in total control of their fleets and workloads. Remote monitoring systems Owner’s Site and ConSite send operational data daily via GPRS or satellite from the excavator to Global e-Service. In addition, ConSite summarises the information in a monthly email and the ConSite Pocket app shows real-time alerts for any potential issues.
A unique innovation continuously monitors the quality of engine and hydraulic oil, 24/7. Data is transmitted daily via two oil sensors to Global e-Service and they detect if the oil quality has deteriorated. Thanks to this innovative feature, customers can be assured of the condition of their excavators, and both maintenance and unscheduled downtime are reduced.
Create your vision
“The latest Zaxis-7 medium excavators have been designed and engineered to help operators and owners to create their vision,” says Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV Product Manager Excavators, Wilbert Blom. “We are proud to present them to our customers, as we want to empower them to take control of their world, not only with our products, but also our people, solutions and services.”
