The ZX180LC-5 has a Tier 4-Interim Isuzu AI-4JJ1 diesel that generates 121 horsepower. Hitachi says the DPF will go 4,500 hours before dealer replacement. Three work modes are available: High Productivity (HP) delivers more power and faster hydraulic response; Power (P) delivers a balance of power, speed, and fuel economy for normal operation; and Economy (E) maximizes fuel efficiency while delivering an enhanced level of productivity.
