The new Hitachi Zaxis ZX130-7, ZX135US-7 and ZX210LC-7
After years of development, the eagerly awaited range of new medium excavators from Hitachi are officially available in New Zealand.
Hitachi puts owners and operators in complete control with the next generation of Zaxis-7 medium excavators. The new ZX130-7, ZX135US-7, ZX160LC-7, ZX210LC-7, ZX225USLC-7, ZX260LC-7 and ZX360LC-7 Stage-V compliant models have an industry-leading cab with first-class comfort and safety features. Their exceptional reliability, efficiency and productivity provide owners with opportunities to increase profits and reduce costs.
270-degree bird’s-eye view
"You’re in control with Hitachi Zaxis-7
Job-site safety is enhanced by the exceptional view from the Zaxia-7 excavator’s cab.
An impressive fuel saving of up to 18% (ECO to ECO mode) compared to previous models is achieved by Hitachi’s industry-leading TRIAS III and HIOS-IV hydraulic systems. This also enhances efficiency in the swing, boom lowering and arm bucket roll-out. Productivity is further increased by the improved front speed for loading operations.
The fuel efficiency of Zaxis-7 excavators can also be controlled by using the new ECO gauge, clearly visible on the cab’s multifunctional 8” monitor. Besides reducing costs, better fuel economy has a positive impact on environmental performance. The new machines are Stage V-compliant thanks to the combination of the SCR (selective catalytic reduction) system*, DOC (diesel oxidation catalyst) and CSF (catalysed soot filter).
Feel the difference
The state-of-the-art, ultra-spacious cab is the perfect working environment. It offers operators ultimate comfort and quality, with reduced noise and vibration levels in the cab, which are both vital when spending long hours operating the machine.
New features include the synchronised motion of the seat and console – to reduce operator fatigue – and the adjustable console height with three positions to choose from. The ergonomic design of the console and switches, and the hi-res anti-glare 8” screen comes with Bluetooth connectivity and allows the operator to easily adjust the machine depending on the type of work or attachment.
Job-site safety is enhanced by the exceptional view from the Zaxis-7 excavator’s cab. Operators can control their own safety, as well as that of those around them, thanks to the Aerial Angle camera system. It provides a 270-degree bird’s-eye view and users can choose from six image options to see the machine’s immediate environment. When working in challenging conditions, new LED work lights and a windscreen wiper with an increased sweeping area further improve visibility. Furthermore, the new cab has roll-down sunshades which can be swivelled around to the direction of the sun.
Tested rigorously at dedicated facilities in Japan, Hitachi Zaxis-7 machines have been built to last and maximise uptime. New engine parts enhance reliability, and the durability of the track frame has been improved.
Easy maintenance and cleaning features on all Zaxis-7 excavators save operators and owners both time and money. Engine oil & coolant levels can be checked within the cab. In addition, the fuel filter is now integrated with the water separator, and the larger radiator improves heat dissipation and is easier to clean.
To enable owners to feel in total control of their fleet and workload, Hitachi’s remote monitoring systems, Owner’s Site and ConSite, give them access to vital data and tools. Both systems send operational data via satellite from the excavator to Global e-Service on a daily basis. ConSite summarises the information in a monthly email, while the ConSite Pocket app shows real-time alerts for any potential issues.
The quality of the engine and hydraulic oil is monitored continuously by a unique Hitachi innovation. Two sensors detect if the oil quality has deteriorated, and data is transmitted to Global e-Service. This innovative feature provides customers with peace of mind on the condition of their excavators and reduces maintenance and unscheduled downtime.

“We are excited to launch this highly productive and versatile new Zaxis-7 medium excavator line-up. These excavators have been developed in response to customer requirements for high productivity, operator comfort lower fuel consumption and a low total cost of ownership.” James Magill, General Manager – Sales for CablePrice (NZ) Ltd says.
The new Zaxis-7 medium excavator range is suitable for a very extensive range of applications in the construction, agriculture, mining and quarrying industries.
“These Zaxis-7 machines have already been in operation in Europe for over a year, where they have proven to be very reliable workhorses, particularly in the construction and quarrying industries,” says James.
