The manufacturer says the new 24-tonne ZW310-7 has been designed to put operators in complete control of their workspace and master the toughest jobsite conditions, providing safety, all-round visibility and intelligent systems.

To protect the operator and machine from potential hazards, it allows a superior view from all angles – especially with the excellent visibility to the rear and either side of the narrow engine hood. With the Aerial Angle camera system, operators also have a 270-degree bird’s-eye view of the jobsite, while the rear obstacle detection and warning system alerts them immediately if anything is close to the rear of the machine.

Hitachi says that, after working a full shift in the spacious and fully redesigned cab, operators will feel less tired and be able to work more productively. Features of the ZW310-7 include an improved seat with mounted electric pilot-control leavers, new monitor controller and convenient side switch panel.

Hitachi adds that owners will be able to increase profits due to the powerful performance, low total cost of ownership and exceptional efficiency of the ZW310-7. 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 machine components.

The RPM are automatically increased thanks to the auto power-up function, which maintains the machine’s travel speed when moving uphill. As a result, the reduced cycle times enhance productivity and reduce fuel consumption.
