Hitachi presents updated ZW75-6 and ZW95-6 compact wheel loaders at Bauma
8 February 2019
The versatile ZW75-6 and ZW95-6 compact wheel loaders benefit from several enhancements to further improve efficiency, comfort and performance for customers. Equipped with a new engine to comply with Stage V emissions requirements in Europe, the updated models have been designed with an emphasis on the environment and operator safety.
The two new compact wheel loaders will be presented by Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV (HCME) at Bauma. They are suitable for a wide range of projects, such as general construction, infrastructure, recycling and agriculture, and can be used with a variety of attachments.
In addition to the new Stage V-compliant engine, the compact wheel loaders are available with a DPF with passive regeneration as standard.
The ZW75-6 and ZW95-6 are already renowned for high levels of productivity on the job site, thanks to a high dumping speed and optimal breakout force. To further enhance productivity, the traction force of the new ZW75-6 model has been increased.
An optional higher flow for the hydraulic system enhances the versatility of the new compact wheel loaders. It increases capacity to 77 litres per minute and is suitable for use with attachments requiring a higher flow rate to perform, such as sweepers and hammers.
Greater comfort and safety
The new models are now available with a heated seat in the cab, which is ideal for customers working in North European and Nordic countries with cold winter climates. Additional tweaks to the cab design include the new pillar-less right window, which provides greater visibility and improves safety on busy job sites.
Hitachi compact wheel loaders are already renowned for excellent visibility – they are the only models on the market with a mono boom, which not only protects cylinders and hoses, but also gives the operator a clear view of the attachment. They are also the only articulated wheel loaders with cabs in their class to have a roof window. This provides a better view for unloading on to a truck or moving pallets.
To further increase visibility in low light, Hitachi has added options to the compact wheel loaders, such as LED lights, and a seven-pin socket for use with a sweeper attachment. This can be operated from the cab.
An optional pilot control lever, ensuring a smoother operation, enhances the user-friendliness of the compact wheel loaders. And an optional DAB radio complements the comfortable working environment for operators.
To ensure a reliable performance, Hitachi compact wheel loaders have several quick and easy maintenance features. The new models benefit from the inclusion of the oil service valve as standard, which saves time when draining engine and hydraulic oil during routine maintenance, and helps to maximise uptime. Oil change intervals of up to 1,000 hours help to reduce maintenance costs and increase availability.
Extendable fenders for the rear wheels of the ZW75-6 and ZW95-6 are available as an option. This prevents dirt and mud from being thrown into the air when the wheel loader drives through muddy terrain.
“Hitachi is committed to the continuous improvement of its products for the benefit of customers,” says HCME Compact Wheel Loader Product Specialist Martin Vissers. “We carefully considered the needs of our customers while updating the ZW75-6 and ZW95-6, to ensure they would deliver exceptional productivity without compromising on efficiency.”
