Hitachi Construction Machinery Americas Inc. (HCMA) launched the 50,265-lb (22,800-kg) ZX210LC-6 HP excavator in the spring of 2022. It offers power, speed and precision to meet the most demanding job-site requirements. A high-power 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 to aid front attachment control and lower fuel consumption.
