Hitachi presents Zaxis-7 model with clamshell telescopic arm

Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV (HCME) introduced a new Zaxis-7 model with clamshell telescopic arm at Bauma last month.


The ZX350LC-7 is available with 30m reach and is ideal for removing soil from below ground. Assembled at HCME’s factory in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, this special application machine has been designed to meet the needs of European customers,” the company said.

Like all Zaxis-7 medium excavators, the ZX350LC-7 with clamshell telescopic arm (CTA) puts owners and operators in complete control.

The Stage-V compliant model has an industry-leading cab with first-class comfort and safety features.

For added versatility, the ZX350LC-7 30m CTA is equipped with rotation piping for use with swivel clamshell buckets.

Also, operators can control the HCME-manufactured attachment from the comfort of the cab with the AFL switch on the right-hand lever.

The cab of the ZX350LC-7 CTA is positioned 960mm further forward than on a standard model. It can also slide a further 1,300mm and has an enlarged floor window to provide the operator with a better view of the digging area below.
