Whether it’s selection, productivity, fuel efficiency, reliability, or control, Hitachi has always given its customers more. And the 200LC excavator continues that Hitachi tradition. Loaded with numerous customer driven enhancements, they deliver superior productivity and durability, while keeping operating costs low.
The Zaxis-5 Series has been developed by the Design Centre at Hitachi Construction Machinery Co., Ltd. (HCM) in Japan. Yusuke Kajita, General Manager of HCM’s Construction Equipment Development Centre, is responsible for the team of 200 engineers behind the new medium-sized excavators (between 10 and 35 tonnes). “We develop new machines, concepts, and specifications in accordance with customer and market requirements,” say Mr. Kajita. “For example, the Zaxis-5 has better fuel efficiency, lower noise levels, and excellent comfort.”
The powerful new-generation Isuzu EPA IT4/Stage IIIB-compliant engines deliver higher productivity with continued great fuel efficiency. A muffler filter helps reduce emissions by capturing air pollutants. And auto shutdown enhances fuel consumption, and reduces noise, exhaust emissions, and carbon dioxide.
