Built with the same toughness as Hitachi’s large mining excavators, the ZX135US-6 and ZX245USLC-6 deliver higher efficiency, reliability and durability.
The hydraulic boost system and enhanced boom recirculation generate aggressive boom and arm speed returning the arm to dig faster, so operators can move more dirt in a day. These models also provide fuel-efficient performance with three work modes, High Productivity delivers more power and faster hydraulic response. Power delivers a balance of power and speed, plus fuel economy for normal operation.
The upgraded excavators feature a new, fuel-efficient FT4 Isuzu engine that is efficient and saves on service time, additionally an improved piston design allows particulate matter to be burned in cylinder, so there’s no need for a diesel particulate filter. The pressurized fuel system improves fuel injector operation, and the fuel recirculation system helps prevent fuel gelling in cold climates.
D-channel side frames house and protect the highly efficient coolers and FT4 engine. Booms, arms and mainframes are so tough, they’re warranted for three years or 10,000 hours, whichever comes first.
An optional backfill blade for the ZX135US-6 adds stability and versatility, eliminating the need for another machine on the job. The ZX135US-6 also comes with an optional rubber pad that helps reduce damage when working on concrete or asphalt, and when crossing streets in residential developments.
Both excavators feature all-around visibility thanks to a wide expanse of front, side and overhead glass and mirrors, plus a standard rearview camera. Operators of the ZX135US-6 get maximum support from a sculpted high-back seat. An air-suspension heated seat now comes standard for the ZX245USLC-6. An automatic, high-velocity bi-level climate-control system with automotive-style adjustable louvers keeps the glass clear and the cab comfortable.
