Hitachi releases two Zaxis-7 compact excavators

The new ZX95US-7 and ZX95USB-7 Stage-V compliant models have been released in Europe

Hitachi has released two new Zaxis-7 models – the ZX95US-7 and ZX95USB-7 excavators – which it says are more powerful and offer 10 per cent greater stability and four per cent greater digging force compared to the ZX85-6 model.

Lifecycle costs are reduced with the new Stage V-compliant engine, which does not require a selective catalytic reduction system, Hitachi says. This eliminates the need for urea, filter replacements and associated maintenance. The all-new ECO gauge also allows operators to control fuel efficiency and reduce costs.

Attachments are quickly changed using the enhanced attachment support system on the LCD monitor and the factory-ready quick hitch system including piping.

Grading and levelling can be completed quickly and easily thanks to the optional floating angle blade, Hitachi adds.

The Zaxis-7 models have a redesigned cab, with low entry and a wide entrance, improved pedal layout and more legroom.

The Aerial Angle camera system provides a 270-degree bird’s-eye view, and operators can choose from six image options to view the machine’s immediate environment.

Remote monitoring systems Owner’s Site and ConSite send operational data daily via GPRS or satellite from the excavator to Global e-Service. In addition, ConSite summarises the information in a monthly email and the ConSite Pocket app shows real-time alerts for any potential issues.

Hitachi has also applied continuous monitoring of engine and hydraulic oil. Data is transmitted daily via two oil sensors to Global e-Service and they detect if the oil quality has deteriorated.

“We are proud to introduce the new ZX95US-7 and ZX95USB-7 models to our customers,” Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV product manager excavators Chris Bardas says.

“These powerful compact machines have been designed and engineered to deliver exceptional performance, the ultimate in operating comfort and reduced running costs.”
