Hitachi Presents Super Long Front Excavator

Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV (HCME) will introduce its largest super long front medium excavator at Intermat event this week in Paris.

With an extended operating range, the ZX350LC-5 model has been specially designed for earthmoving on dredging, bank maintenance and slope finishing projects. It has been developed with a variety of features to meet the demands of European owners and operators, with an emphasis on productivity, durability, comfort and safety, and easy maintenance.

Manufactured to comply with the latest EU regulations on emission standards, the ZX350LC-5 super long front machine has a powerful Isuzu engine, which delivers higher productivity with greater fuel efficiency. The auto shutdown and auto idle features prevent fuel wastage, and reduce noise levels, exhaust emissions and CO2.

The new TRIAS hydraulic system has helped to boost the productivity of the ZX350LC-5 super long front, because it enables faster operation with less fuel than the previous Zaxis-3 model. The auto power boost function has been increased by ten per cent to deliver an enhanced excavating and earthmoving performance.

With a strengthened boom and arm, the ZX350LC-5 super long front offers greater durability than the previous Zaxis-3 model, which makes it ideal for working long hours in rugged and remote environments.
