The ZW310-6 is required to dump wet and ‘sticky’ materials from the bucket. Under test conditions, the Hitachi wheel loader was the only machine that fully emptied the bucket due to the speed of the hydraulic system.

“It also feels safe and stable when loading trucks thanks to the excellent visibility. It’s quieter and offers a more comfortable working environment in the cab. The rear visibility is also better than the other machines,” adds Milanko.
