ators the power to monitor their
fleet without ever leaving their
seats. The system provides access
to fleet location, functions, hours,
fuel consumption, alerts and other
essential machine data
New ZX210-6 and
Tier 4 excavators
The two excavators are equipped
with a powerful EPA FT4/EU Stage
IV Isuzu engine that provides oper-
ators with integrated, effective en-
gine technologies and does not re-
quire a diesel particulate filter.
Designed for those working
in the underground, road build-
ing, energy, commercial building
and pipeline industries, the
ZX210-6 and ZX210LC-6 deliver
higher efficiency, reliability and
“Wi th the upgraded

Hitachi is known for with

said Mark Wall.
With heavier operating weights of 21,430 kg / 47,245
lbs. (ZX210-6) and 21,900 kg /48,238 lbs. (ZX210LC-6),
these excavators take productivity to a higher level.
Bucket capacity is 0.9-1.29 yd³ (0.69-0.99 m³)
The hydraulic boost system and enhanced boom
recirculation generate aggressive boom and arm speed
– returning the arm to dig faster, so you can move more
dirt in a day. Plus, the pressurized fuel system improves
fuel injector operation, and the fuel recirculation system
helps prevent fuel gelling in cold climates – so you can
maintain maximum productivity.
The ZX210-6 and ZX210LC-6 are offered with new op-
tions that make it even easier for Hitachi customers to
get the most out of their machines.
These models can be equipped with a grade refer-
ence-ready package that features sensor mounting brack-
ets that are welded to the boom, arm, dogbone, coun-
terweight and main frame of the excavator at the
This reduces system installation time by half by elim-
inating the need to grind, weld and re-paint a machine.
The brackets are compatible with Topcon, Trimble or
Leica grade reference systems.
Both excavators also come with an optional auxiliary
function lever that provides proportional control for
auxiliary hydraulic attachments to help improve produc-
tivity on the jobsite.
Efficiency Across All Models
Maintenance on the FT4 excavators is minimized to help
increase uptime and reduce operating costs.
Upper structure handrails provide added safety when
servicing the engine compartment, and a larger hood
offers better engine accessibility.
A battery disconnect switch, located in the rear door
behind the cab, is easily accessible and extends battery
life. In addition, engine oil, fuel and hydraulic pilot oil
filters are all located on the same side at ground level
for easy servicing.
D-channel side frames house and protect the highly ef-
ficient coolers and FT4 engine. Booms, arms and main-
frames are so tough, they’re warranted for three years
or 10,000 hours, whichever comes first.
