The machine is equipped with Hitachi’s sophisticated HIOS III hydraulic system for high productivity and better fuel consumption than previous models. Operators can also control fuel efficiency and costs with the ECO gauge on the LCD monitor.

The Zaxis-7 wheeled excavator can be used with a broad range of Hitachi attachments, such as tilt rotators and buckets, breakers and sorting grabs, to suit the application.

Durability and quality are claimed and the single-piece undercarriage benefits from greater oscillation; improved outrigger hydraulics; and mudguards protecting the upper structure from dirt. For greater lifting capacity and exceptional stability, customers can choose from a range of counterweights, and between standard 2,550mm or 2,750mm axles for the ZX220W-7.

Hitachi remote monitoring systems provide access to vital data through the Site and ConSite tools. Both systems send operational data via GPRS or satellite from the excavator to Global e-Service on a daily basis. ConSite summarises the information in a monthly email, and the ConSite Pocket app shows real-time alerts for potential issues.

Machine software updates can be carried out remotely by dealers for added convenience using ConSite Air. This feature also enables Zaxis-7 excavators to be monitored with Hitachi’s diagnostic tool (MPDr. Remote Access) from anywhere in the world, ensuring maximum uptime.
