Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV (HCME) has launched the new ZX530LCH-6 large excavator.
“Designed and engineered to meet the demands of large-scale construction projects and quarries, it offers the highest level of durability without compromising on efficiency,” the company said in the announcement.
This machine incorporates Hitachi technology developed specifically for the Zaxis-6 large excavator range, and has versatile features for a wide range of challenging working environments.
The boom has been reinforced with thicker plates and the undercarriage consists of robust components including the track link, master pin, idler pedestal and bracket and upper roller bracket.
HIOS IIIB technology, developed by Hitachi, uses two pumps and control valves to reduce fuel consumption and cut costs.
The ZX530LCH-6 can save up to 5% fuel in ECO mode, with the same productivity as the previous model.
This hydraulic technology also has a positive impact on productivity, due to the efficient swing, boom lowering, arm and bucket roll-out.
