Tested rigorously and continuously at dedicated facilities in Japan, Hitachi Zaxis-7 machines have been built to last and to significantly boost uptime. They have a wide range of durable new components.
These include a high-performance hydraulic filter that captures dust in the hydraulic oil and helps to reduce running costs.
Downtime is minimised by easy maintenance and cleaning features, which save operators and owners both time and money. Peace of mind comes from such features as the two-way disconnect switch. This makes it possible to shut down power while still enabling the machine to transmit operation data for 72 hours. When the battery is completely disconnected, service or maintenance works can be carried out.
Feel the difference
The state-of-the-art, ultra-spacious cab of the new Zaxis-7 provides the perfect working environment. It offers the ultimate in comfort and quality, with some of the lowest noise levels in the market and 20% less vibration than the previous generation.
New features include the synchronised motion of the seat and console – to reduce operator fatigue – and the adjustable console height with three positions to choose from. Easy operation comes from the ergonomic design of the console and switches. The hi-res anti-glare screen is also easier to view.
Hitachi Zaxis-7 excavators provide a superior view of the job site to enhance safety. This is thanks to the 270-degree bird’s eye view from the Aerial Angle camera system. Operators can choose from six image options to view the machine’s immediate environment, enabling them to control the safety of themselves and those around them.
Visibility is also improved by new LED work lights, a windscreen wiper with an increased sweeping area, and large reflective strips on the counterweight. And as an example of the attention to detail paid to the safe working environment of the new Zaxis-7 machines, the pilot shutoff lever has been repositioned. It is now within easy reach to prevent any unintentional actions.
