The Hitachi Zaxis 350LC-3 replaced both the Zaxis 330 and Zaxis 370 excavators. Beefed-up in several critical areas and powered by Isuzu’s 271-horsepower Tier-3-certified diesel with Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), the 77,269-pound 350LC-3 performs more like its larger production-sized siblings. Swing torque, traction force and digging force have all been increased. The P Mode increases production; the E mode can reduce fuel consumption. It comes standard with a 13-foot 1-inch arm, a 16,314-pound counterweight, and 32-inch triple semi-grouser shoes.
