Hitachi has introduced a new generation of excavator: the innovative hybrid ZH210LC-5. Advanced electrical technology delivers reliable performance and controllability, with up to 31 per cent less fuel and emissions than the conventional model.
More economical for owners, easier for operators and better for the environment, the ZH210LC-5 is the natural choice for excavating and loading applications.
The TRIAS HX system combines the hybrid and TRIAS hydraulic systems to achieve less fuel consumption. The hybrid system’s swing motor converts energy generated during swing braking into electrical energy. This is transferred via the Power Control Unit and stored in the capacitor unit, before being used to help the engine accelerate and move the upper structure.
TRIAS employs a three-pump/three-control valve system, which results in greater accuracy and reduces pressure loss to save energy. The ZH210LC-5 also has an electric power assist system that comes into force for small swing operations. It uses energy from electric swing motors that helps to further reduce fuel consumption.
“Prior to launch, the ZH210LC-5 hybrid excavator underwent a rigorous winter test in freezing Arctic Circle temperatures that plummeted to -30°C under the supervision of Finnish contractor Maansiirtoliike Kemppe Oy.
It used the machine for earthmoving and loading trucks from January until March 2014 on a road construction project in Rovaniemi alongside its existing fleet of conventional medium Zaxis-3 and -5 excavators.
“The swing motion on the hybrid excavator means that it is even more smooth and precise than a conventional machine. In addition, it is less noisy in the cab and the fuel consumption is excellent.”
“I would have no hesitation in recommending the ZH210LC-5 and we will evaluate its purchase price and running costs next time we are buying a new machine.”
“The hybrid machine is very quiet and easy to operate, the swing motion is smooth and responsive, and the fuel consumption is certainly favourable in comparison to our other machines working on the same site.”
“It has been really interesting to work on the hybrid winter test and to learn about Hitachi’s latest advanced technology. The system has been easy to maintain and is extremely reliable, but the most impressive aspect for me is how quiet the machine is.”
