The ZX345USLC-6 excavator has reduced tail swing and a three-pump hydraulic system that provides multifunction performance and fast cycle times.
Standard auxiliary function lever (AFL) and control is designed for precise control of all attachments, including thumbs and grapples. The lever enables the operator to precisely and easily move attachments by the “slider” on the right hand of the pilot joystick. Optional auxiliary hydraulic line and proportional reliefs are available.
An Isuzu 249 horsepower engine uses cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC), and selective catalytic reduction (SCR). Diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) is injected into the exhaust stream of the engine, runs through a catalyst, and turns the NOx in the exhaust into harmless water vapor and nitrogen gas. The EGR is specifically tuned to further reduce NOx (compared to EPA Interim Tier 4 [IT4]/EU Stage IIIB engines) to meet new emission standards with minimal use of DEF. Additionally, an improved piston design allows particulate matter to be burned in cylinder, so there’s no need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
The heavy-duty undercarriage, designed for a 35-metric-ton machine, provides a low center of gravity, greater stability, and increased lift capacity.
D-channel side frames house and protect the highly efficient coolers and FT4 engine. The boom, arm and mainframe are so tough, they’re warranted for three years or 10,000 hours, whichever comes first.
Maintenance for the ZX345USLC-6 is minimized with features such as side-by-side cooling cores, a standard battery disconnect switch and ground-level access to filters. Extended service intervals help maximize uptime, and scheduled maintenance is easy to track using Hitachi’s ZXLin system, which comes standard equipped on the model.
ZXLink gives owners the power to optimize their operation and maximize profits. With the support of their dealer, owners can use their data to reduce idling time as well as maximize productivity and uptime. Without ever leaving their seat, they have access to fleet location, functions, hours, fuel consumption, alerts and other essential machine data. Owners can also view location and alert information in the field from iOS or Android devices.
