In response to the growing need for versatile equipment to work in narrow spaces or restrictive areas, Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV (HCME) has launched its smallest wheeled excavator, the ZX95W-7. Compact, agile, and with impressive lifting capacity, it is an ideal solution for urban job sites. Like all Hitachi Zaxis-7 wheeled excavators, the newcomer to the range has been designed to help owners and operators control their profitability, comfort, safety and uptime.
Owners can increase profits by working on a wider range of projects, including road and general construction, house building and utilities. Its compact size and short turning radius allow it to work efficiently and safely in confined areas, particularly in the vicinity of pedestrians and road users. Adding the two-piece boom, in combination with the swing boom, makes it a perfect match at every job site.
The ZX95W-7 is exceptionally manoeuvrable thanks to the four-wheel steering and offers excellent lifting capacity to deliver high levels of productivity. Versatility is also enhanced when used with a tiltrotator and S-type couplers for attachments.
Enhanced comfort and increased safety
The cab is the perfect working environment for operators. Ultra-spacious, it offers the ultimate in comfort and quality. Easy operation comes from the intuitive controls, which are within easy reach, and the small steering wheel. The cab also offers a superior view of the job site to protect operators and the machine from potential hazards. Visibility is boosted by the rear-view camera.
Stability is provided by the blade positioned on the rear of the undercarriage, and by the optional independently operating outriggers on both left and right sides.
Uptime is maximised by the reliable performance of the ZX95W-7, which has been built to last. Easy access to the engine compartment ensures checks and inspections can be carried out quickly and conveniently. Quality is found in every detail – the machine’s standard configuration includes air conditioning, air suspension seat with heater and electric fuel feed pump. Downtime is minimised by the priority given to easy maintenance and cleaning, with features such as the fenders protecting the upper structure from dirt.
“We look forward to unveiling this new model to our customers at Bauma 2022,” says HCME Excavator Product Manager Wilbert Blom. “The new ZX95W-7 perfectly complements our Zaxis-7 range, providing exceptional agility and manoeuvrability in small spaces, and an extra level of versatility on the job site.
“We see significant demand for this type of equipment in France and Germany, and have addressed the needs of those markets in the design of this new model. By providing flexibility, with options such as single or twin tyres, contractors across Europe can customise the machine to their job site requirements.”
