New Hitachi wheel loader to bring ‘exceptional efficiency’ to European customers

HITACHI is launching a larger next-generation model from its Stage V-compliant wheel loader range, which has been tipped to enhance productivity on quarries and recycling plants.

The ZW310-7  features the Aerial Angle camera system, which provides operators with a 270-degree bird’s-eye view of the job site, while the rear obstacle detection and warning system alerts them if anything is close to the rear of the machine.

The redesigned cab boasts an improved seat with mounted electric pilot control leavers, new monitor controller, and side switch panel.

Hitachi said high levels of productivity are ensured by ‘fast cycle times, a high breakout force and loading capacity, and improved acceleration on inclines’ thanks to sensors installed on several components. The RPM are automatically increased thanks to the auto power up function, which maintains the travel speed when moving uphill. Operators can monitor fuel consumption via the new ECO gauge.

“The new ZW310-7 wheel loader has been designed to give a powerful performance, low total cost of ownership and exceptional efficiency to European customers,” said Bill Drougkas, manager product management of Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV. “Built to the highest quality standards, it will significantly boost productivity on busy quarries and large recycling plants, and have a positive impact on profits.”
