The Hitachi ZX870H Excavator is one of Hitachi’s reliable, hard-working hydraulic excavators. At home in a wide range of environments, this excavator features a strengthened undercarriage and strengthened track links and upper brackets, making it ideally suited to harsh, hot, Australian conditions.
One of the key features of the Hitachi ZX870H is the view it offers the operator thanks to the raised position of the operator’s seat within the cabin, which also features a widescreen colour LCD monitor that can be adjusted for day and night shifts, maximising operator comfort, operational accuracy and control. More than average leg-room together with short stroke levers also makes the ZX870H Excavator a favourite with operators.
The advantages of a hydraulic excavator all relate to the power and versatility these machines pack relative to their size and manouverability. The Hitachi ZX870H is no exception. Easy to transport from one project to another and able to be fitted with a range of attachments that includes demolition mallet, scraping blade and grappling arm, hydraulic excavators can be found across any industry that involves moving large amounts of material.
At the time of release, The Hitachi ZX870H’s powerful hydraulics, together with its turbocharged 397 kW, Isuzu AH-6WG1XYSA-03 engine, delivered 14% bucket digging force and 8% more arm digging force than conventional models. And the ZX870H still provides exceptional value across a wide variety of environments due to its ability to cope with variable ground conditions and limited work spaces.
