A Move to Let You Build the Modern Way

The human arsenal has always been expansive beyond all limits, but at the same time, it has still never possessed anything more significant than that tendency of growing on a consistent basis. We say this because the stated tendency has got the world to hit upon some huge milestones, with technology emerging as quite a major member of the group. The reason why we hold technology in such a high regard is, by and large, based on its skill-set, which ushered us towards a reality that nobody could have ever imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, if we look beyond the surface for a second, it will become clear how the whole runner was also very much inspired from the way we applied those skills across a real world environment. The latter component, in fact, did a lot to give the creation a spectrum-wide presence and start what was a full-blown tech revolution. Of course, this revolution then went on to scale up the human experience from many different directions, but even after achieving a feat so notable, technology will somehow continue to produce the goods. The same has turned more and more evident in recent times, and assuming one construction-themed development shakes out just like we envision, it will only put that trend on a higher pedestal moving forward.
Hitachi has officially unveiled its new ZX190LC-7 excavator, marking another entry into the company’s vast heavy-duty machines’ collection. According to certain reports, the excavator brings you a large cabin which is decked up with a one-touch dual adjustable seat and console, while simultaneously featuring four fluid-filled elastic mounts to reduce vibration when travelling. Apart from it, there is an 8-in. (20.32-cm) anti-glare LCD monitor that can be used for listening to music, making calls, and do a whole lot more. Talk about enhancing the operator’s experience, the excavator notably boasts an Aerial Angle peripheral vision camera system. The stated system provides a wide 270-degree bird’s-eye view of the machine’s immediate environment, and as it does so, it even allows the operator to select a view on the monitor that best suits the situation. However, this isn’t the only camera in the mix, as the vehicle also delivers at your disposal a rear-view camera that lets the operator see right below the counterweight.
“Hitachi Construction Machinery Americas Inc. (HCMA) recognizes the need to add the ZX190LC-7 to its line of full-sized excavators to meet customer demand. The ZX190LC-7 fills the gap between the existing 29,463-lb. (17,900-kg) ZX160LC-7 and the 49,833-lb. (22,600-kg) ZX210LC-7. HCMA is focused on fine-tuning and enhancing the core capabilities of all ZAXIS-7 excavators to maximize efficiency so you get more for less,” said Patrick Baker, product manager of medium and large excavators at Hitachi Construction Machinery Americas Inc.
Another detail worth a mention is the vehicle’s HIOS IV hydraulic system, which minimizes hydraulic loss and enhances overall performance. This system is understood to have its own responsive boom, alongside arm and bucket with intuitive control. Owing to such capabilities, HIOS IV can produce a maximum flow rating of 100 gallons per minute (380 lpm). If that isn’t impressive enough, the operator can also adjust attachment, arm, and swing priority to match their preference.
Surely, the technical prowess is there, but just how durable is Hitachi’s latest brainchild? Well, to give you brief overview of the same, we must dig into its anti-mud-compaction lower roller that keeps mud from entering and damaging the oil seals. Separately, a spin-on type fuel filter prevents dust from entering the fuel circuit, whereas the air conditioner is protected from external particles using a different internal filter. Moving on, the ZX190LC-7 ensures a pretty straightforward access to the engine for easier maintenance. Staying on this bit, the customers can further expect to seamlessly track maintenance through a multifunctional monitor, which will display stuff like preset maintenance intervals, remaining engine oil, and coolant levels. Lastly, the excavator will also bring forth a ConSite OIL functionality that can catch issues before any fault codes are triggered in the machine. Such an option should be of huge help in spotting oil degradation before damage to critical systems can occur.
