Hitachi Unleashes Next-Generation Products and Support


Hitachi Construction Machinery Americas Inc. displayed 27 machines at CONEXPO-CON/AGG. Next-generation Dash-7 Hitachi excavators and wheel loaders address customer needs with enhancements to core capabilities that optimize performance and reliability while reducing operating costs.

Refinements to Hitachi excavators and wheel loaders aim to maximize efficiency so owners get more for less. The next-generation Hitachi hydraulic system – the TRIAS III – features a unique 3-pump system to enhance productivity and efficiency on the ZX210-7, ZX245-7, ZX300-7, ZX345-7 and ZX350-7 excavators. The TRIAS III system allows the 3 hydraulic pumps to work together and direct oil flow for maximum efficiency of the bucket, arm and boom. 

Select wheel loaders gain efficiency with an improved Auto Power Up function on ZW160-7 wheel loaders and above. The technology adjusts engine speed automatically for more control when climbing hills. The Auto Power Up function increases engine speed as the wheel loader slows down when traveling uphill, resulting in enhanced fuel economy and shorter travel time.

Hitachi continues to expand the ConSite® suite of telematic tools beyond monitoring machine fault codes. This telematic technology suite can be used to track and maximize productivity. Two new tools were on display at CONEXPO-CON/AGG:

  • ConSite Oil monitors engine and hydraulic oil conditions to proactively make operators aware before major issues become apparent. This helps drive uptime by catching oil degradation before damage to critical systems can occur.
  • ConSite Air provides the option to update software and access diagnostics remotely. No matter where a machine is located, the Hitachi dealer can remotely diagnose issues that may arise, leading to increased uptime. A Consite response team rapidly resolves issues as they emerge.

The latest innovation in loader safety is a rear obstacle detection system with automatic speed reduction available on the Hitachi ZW160-7 and larger wheel loaders. It offers rear object detection alerts and deceleration to improve safety and reduce potential damage on the jobsite.
