In Spring of 2022, Hitachi Construction Machinery Americas Inc. (HCMA) debuted the 50,265-lb (22,800-kg) ZX210LC-6 HP excavator, which offers power, speed and precision to meet the most demanding job-site requirements. A high-power HP Mode increases engine speed and hydraulic-pump output torque when extra speed and/or heavy-duty work is required. The TRIAS II hydraulic system features three pumps that supply an optimal amount of pressurized oil to each actuator. The pumps are controlled electrically for precise oil flow for sensitive front attachment control and lower fuel consumption.
