Introducing the new Zaxis-7 excavators

How the latest range of Hitachi machines are designed to put owners and operators in control.

Take control with Hitachi Zaxis-7

The next generation Zaxis-7 range of Hitachi medium excavators has arrived in Europe and has been designed to put owners and operators in complete control.


The new ZX250-7, ZX300-7 and ZX350-7 models offer an enhanced user experience in the cab with a refined design. They provide owners with opportunities to increase profits and reduce costs, thanks to their efficiency and versatility. And they are supported throughout the life cycle by the technological expertise and services that Hitachi provides.


Improve profit


The impressive fuel economy of these Stage V-compliant machines results in up to 10% less fuel consumption compared to previous models. Hitachi’s industry-leading hydraulic system, TRIAS III, ensures that this performance is achieved across a variety of applications.


As well as reducing costs, better fuel economy has a positive impact on environmental performance. The fuel efficiency of Zaxis-7 excavators can be further controlled by using the new ECO gauge, clearly visible on the 8” multifunctional monitor.


The versatility of Hitachi Zaxis-7 excavators means they can be used on a wider range of projects, which will also boost profits. Attachments are quickly changed using the enhanced attachment support system on the monitor. And with a simple adjustment to suit operator preference and job site requirements, the machine can be fine-tuned for optimum productivity, while still reducing fuel consumption.

Boost uptime

Tested rigorously and continuously at dedicated facilities in Japan, Hitachi Zaxis-7 machines have been built to last and to significantly boost uptime. They have a wide range of durable new components.

These include a high-performance hydraulic filter that captures dust in the hydraulic oil and helps to reduce running costs.

Downtime is minimised by easy maintenance and cleaning features, which save operators and owners both time and money. Peace of mind comes from such features as the two-way disconnect switch. This makes it possible to shut down power while still enabling the machine to transmit operation data for 72 hours. When the battery is completely disconnected, service or maintenance works can be carried out.


Feel the difference


The state-of-the-art, ultra-spacious cab of the new Zaxis-7 provides the perfect working environment. It offers the ultimate in comfort and quality, with some of the lowest noise levels in the market and 20% less vibration than the previous generation.


New features include the synchronised motion of the seat and console – to reduce operator fatigue – and the adjustable console height with three positions to choose from. Easy operation comes from the ergonomic design of the console and switches. The hi-res anti-glare screen is also easier to view.


Increase safety


Hitachi Zaxis-7 excavators provide a superior view of the job site to enhance safety. This is thanks to the 270-degree bird’s eye view from the Aerial Angle camera system. Operators can choose from six image options to view the machine’s immediate environment, enabling them to control the safety of themselves and those around them.


Visibility is also improved by new LED work lights, a windscreen wiper with an increased sweeping area, and large reflective strips on the counterweight. And as an example of the attention to detail paid to the safe working environment of the new Zaxis-7 machines, the pilot shutoff lever has been repositioned. It is now within easy reach to prevent any unintentional actions.

Fleet management

To enable owners to feel in total control of their fleet and workload, Hitachi has a wide range of after-sales services. These include remote monitoring systems Owner’s Site and ConSite, which give access to vital data and tools to help manage the new Zaxis-7 machines.


Both systems send operational data daily via GPRS or satellite from the excavator to Global e-Service. This includes ratios of operating hours to enhance efficiency; fuel consumption to manage running costs; and machine location for planning purposes. ConSite summarises the information in a monthly email.


Owners can also use the ConSite Pocket app, which shows real-time alerts for any issues arising, as well as recommendations on what to do and self-help guides. The app also shows the location of machines.


The quality of engine and hydraulic oil in Zaxis-7 excavators is continuously monitored 24/7 by a unique innovation. Data is transmitted daily via two sensors to Global e-Service and they detect if the oil quality has deteriorated. This innovative feature provides customers with peace of mind on the condition of their excavators, and reduces maintenance and unscheduled downtime.
