According to Hitachi, the recently introduced Zaxis 120-3 can handle everything from the mundane to the exotic, ranging from digging basements, loading trucks, and placing pipe.
Easily towed behind a dump truck and available with rubber crawler pads and a backfill blade, the ZX120-3 is driven by 28,498-pound ZX120-3 with its 93-horsepower Isuzu engine and patented HIOS III hydraulic.
It can generate 24,720 pounds of drawbar pull and 25,077 foot pounds of swing torque, wield 12,823-pound breakout force, and lift a maximum of 11,443 pounds over the front at a distance of 15 feet (blade on ground).
Thanks to the extremely fuel-thrifty four-cylinder Isuzu engine and long engine and hydraulic oil-change intervals, are easy on diesel dollars.
Auxiliary attachment flow can be programmed in the cab, using the widescreen multilingual color LCD monitor. The monitor also provides easy access to maintenance and operational information.
The ZX120-3 is available with either 8-foot 3-inch or 9-foot 11-inch arm. Track choices include 20-inch rubber crawler pad or 24-inch or 28-inch triple semi-grouser steel shoes. A backfill blade is available, with the blade width varying according to the selected shoe size.
A control pattern-change valve, single-pedal propel control, an air-suspension heated seat, and high-pressure, high-flow auxiliary hydraulic package are also available.
