The versatile Hitachi Zaxis-7 excavators can be used on a wide range of projects. Attachments can be changed quickly with the new attachment support system on the monitor, giving the operator greater control. The machines can also be tuned for optimum productivity to suit an application, while reducing fuel consumption.

Hitachi Zaxis-7 excavators have a good view of the jobsite due to the Aerial Angle camera system. Operators can choose from six image options to view the machine’s immediate environment. Visibility in difficult conditions is improved by new LED work lights.

The machines benefit from Hitachi’s remote monitoring systems, Owner’s Site and ConSite. This gives access to data and 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, while the ConSite Pocket app shows real-time alerts for any potential issues.

The quality of the engine and hydraulic oil is monitored continuously and data is transmitted via two sensors to Global e-Service. This detects if the oil quality has deteriorated, reducing maintenance needs and unscheduled downtime.
