Hitachi expands the Zaxis 6 rangePublished 22/4, 2016 at 12:50
Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV will debut its ZX490LCH-6 large excavator in Munich. Designed for large-scale construction and mining projects, the 50t machine comes equipped with the reinforced boom and undercarriage.
The in-cab console is made of weather-resistant AES-grade resin to prevent damage from UV rays. The upper structure is protected from heat and noise by high-quality sealant and acoustic materials. The in-house HIOS IIIB technology helps reduce fuel consumption. A multi-stage exhaust gas treatment system consists of diesel oxidation catalyst, urea mixing pipe, selective catalytic reduction and silencer. Pollutants are further reduced by the variable geometry turbocharger and high volume-cooled exhaust gas recirculation system. Different attachments can be fitted onto the ZX490LCH-6 using a special attachment changeover system.
