Hitachi Construction Machinery today announced that on November 1, 2003, it will release two new wheel-drive type hydraulic excavators in Japan, the ZAXIS160W, which has a standard bucket capacity of 0.6m3 and a total working weight of 15.5 tons, and the ZAXIS210W, which has a standard bucket capacity of 0.8m3 and a total working weight of 20.4 tons.
Developed based on the concept shared by all ZAXIS series models, the new hydraulic excavators can be operated on ordinary roads and are powered by clean engines that meet Class 2 emission standards.
In January the ZAXIS160W and ZAXIS210W were released in Europe, where they have already won an excellent reputation.
1. High level of basic functionality, reliability and ease ofmaintenance
- Use of the same high-reliability front construction employed in ZAXIS crawlerhydraulic excavators.
- Due to the use of tungsten carbide welds, the period between lubrication of the front pins and other bucket components has been extended to 500 hours, and a new hydraulic filter is used that only needs to be replaced every 1,000 hours.
2. Full compliance with environmental and safety standards
3. e-excavator functions
- Data relating to operation (hours used, details of excavator operations, etc.) and location are collected and stored via a satellite-based or portable communication system, and used to provide more-efficient maintenance and preventive safety.
