MOLINE, Illinois – Hitachi Construction Products has introduced the second group of new ZX Dash-5 excavators. The ZX470LC-5, ZX670LC-5, and ZX870LC-5 models replace the predecessor ZX450LC-3, ZX650LC-3, and ZX850LC-3 units.
The new Dash-5 excavators are more productive. Greater horsepower combined with optimized hydraulics for bigger arm and bucket digging forces result in more material moved per litre of fuel.
The roomier cab has more side-to-side foot room and a larger door with more glass for better visibility to the side. The new easy-to-operate multifunction monitor provides enhanced diagnostic features and integrates the radio and HVAC controls in one place. The lighting package now includes two cab lights and one additional boom light.
The IT4 Isuzu cooled EGR engine platform is less complex to maintain than selective catalytic reduction systems while delivering the productivity, fuel efficiency, and reliability customers have enjoyed with Tier 3 models. A new exhaust filter consists of a diesel oxidation catalyst-diesel particulate filter. It requires no daily attention due to its 4,500-hour service life.
