Hitachi Construction Products will roll out two new excavators in March, the reduced-tail-swing Zaxis 135US-3 and the Zaxis 220W-3 wheeled excavator equipped with a wrist attachment. The ZX135US-3, replacing the 135US, uses a Tier-3 engine and features the CRES II cab, provides a wider seatback, more legroom and more right-side glass for improved visibility. Low-effort, short-throw levers reduce operator fatigue; and a multilingual, wide-screen LCD color monitor provides maintenance, attachment and operational information.The new ZX220W-3, also Tier-3-compliant and using the new CRES II cab, incorporates improvements common to all Hitachi Dash-3 excavators, including increased travel speed, greater acceleration, and a wider axle-oscillation angle for a smoother ride over rougher terrain. The machine can be equipped with a variety of boom, blade, outrigger, and bucket options.
