Reduced Running Costs
Running and maintenance costs are reduced greatly with concentrated inspecting points and durable components.
Extended Hydraulic Oil Replacement Intervals (Up from 2 000 to 4 000 Hours)
Hitachi genuine hydraulic oil can quadruple hydraulic oil replacement intervals. A hydraulic oil drain hose is mounted standard.
Extended Filter Replacement Intervals (250 to 500 Hours)
Filter replacement intervals are extended by increasing engine oil capacity and using high-performance filters, slashing servicing costs and downtime.
The engine oil drain port is located for the convenience of maintenance. No need for reaching under the machine.
Conveniently Located Filters
Dual fuel filters with sedimentary function and engine oil filter are strategically located for the convenient daily inspection and servicing from the ground.
Easy-to-Replace Air Conditioning Filters
The fresh air filter can easily be replaced from the cab, and circulation air filter also replaced by detaching the drink holder.
The HN bushing containing high-viscosity oil is provided at each joint to reduce grease consumption, extend lubrication intervals (100 to 500 hours), and increase durability.
The HN bushing, another example of innovative technology developed by Hitachi, features long life and high durability. High-viscosity oil is vacuum impregnated in sintered high-hardness metal. During operation oil oozes from the pores of the bushing into the clearance between pins and bushing providing lubrication.
Strategically Located Fuel Supply Port
The fuel supply port is located for convenient fuel supply from the ground.
Large Tool Box
A large tool box is provided at the top step of the ladder on the right side of the machine. The tool box can hold a grease gun and tool kit.
With the easy-to-read monitor, the operator can see instructions for scheduled servicing and maintenance.
Monitor Indication Items :
Clock, service intervals, travel speed, mileage, hour meter
Replacement Alerting :
Engine oil / filter, fuel filter, hydraulic oil / filter, transmission oil / filter
Flat Cab Floor
The cab floor is stepless (flat) for ease of cleaning.
Reversible Hydraulically Operated Cooling Fan
The rotation of the hydraulically operated cooling fan with heat-sensing system can be reversed for easy removal of dirt from the radiator. The fan itself can swing open for easy cleaning.
Dirt-Less (DL) Front Frame
The DL front frame is shaped for easy removal of dirt, stones and snow.
