Hitachi to present Zaxis-7 excavator with factory-fitted Leica solution at bauma

HITACHI Construction Machinery (Europe) NV (HCME) has revealed it will showcase a Zaxis-7 medium excavator with a 3D machine control solution from Leica Geosystems at bauma 2022.

Adding Leica Geosystems machine control technology to the ZX210LC-7 is said to ‘increase efficiency’ on job sites, while ‘lowering running costs’.

From slope grading to blind and submerged cuts, Hitachi explained the machine control solution provides operators with an ‘easy-to-use system to rapidly excavate to the reference design’.

Ryo Kurihara, HCME solution linkage manager, said, “By taking advantage of a factory-fitted Leica Geosystems solution, operators can start work immediately after machine delivery. Also, owners have peace of mind that the machine control system has been installed and tested to Hitachi standards, and it will be fully supported by their local Hitachi dealer in conjunction with the local Leica Geosystems specialists.

“We are pleased to offer this new turnkey option to customers, which will not only save them time, but also make their Hitachi excavators even more efficient, productive, and versatile. By delivering customised solutions such as this, we aim to become their first-choice solutions provider.”
