Hitachi rolls out the ZW220-6, the first of its new mid-sized wheel loaders in the Dash-6 series. Designed as a do-it-all loader, the machine weighs in at 38,910 pounds and is powered by a 200-horsepower Cummins Tier 4 Final (DPF-free) engine. It delivers 34,170 pounds of breakout force. Heaped bucket capacity is 4.2 to 4.7 cubic yards, with loading heights of up to 13.5 feet. Smart technology features such as ride control, telematics, auto power-up, and a color LCD monitor are included in Dash-6 loaders. Hitachi’s Global e-Service combines with its Consite reporting program to give fleet managers 24/7 remote monitoring, maintenance, and daily operational data, as well as monthly summary reports. The cab boasts a fully updated comfort and convenience package, and an airtight seal to keep out dust. A tilt/telescoping steering pedestal is linked to a pop-up pedal that returns the steering pedestal to its start position. Air conditioning, excellent ventilation, and a new sound system with roof-mounted speakers create a comfortable work place for long shifts.
