The cab has been significantly improved with operation and reduction of operator fatigue as the first priority.
By expanding the space, visibility in the front and left is improved, along with a higher degree of safety. In addition, the piping of the arm has been changed to enable the installation of a quick coupler that allows the attachment to be replaced with the touch of a button while in the cab. Furthermore, the seats and layout have been carefully configured, and various other improvements have been made in consideration of ease of use and operability. Being able to make adjustments that suit the operator and their work environment, a higher performance in a more comfortable state can be assured.
The operator console and seat suspension have been integrated for more comfortable and safer operation.
The console position has been adjusted to increase rigidity which reduces operator fatigue and improves safety.
In addition, in the pursuit of comfort and convenience, we looked into every detail, such as wide view wipers that improve visibility in rainy weather, drink holders and other pockets etc.

Service personnel to date have made adjustments as to which speed should be prioritized when operating the attachment and arm at the same time.
The new model is equipped with a function in order for the operator to more easily make adjustments on the monitor.
As the speed can be freely adjusted allowing easier use for each operator and their work loads, the range of work that can be handled by one machine is increased, bringing greater work efficiency.
In response to Goal 12 "Responsible consumption, production" of the SDGs (United Nations Sustainable Development Goals), Hitachi Construction Machinery aims to secure more sustainable forms of consumption and production levels. At Hitachi Construction Machinery, we continually work to maintain and improve safety and quality levels, and at the same time extend our product life-cycles in order to minimize any impact on the environment. This was also evident as we pursued vibration resistance and durability in our development of a new anti-vibration rubber to improve cab performance. We continually strive to develop products that are not only focused on functionality but also have a high level of durability and maintainability.
