Hitachi launches ZW100-6 wheel loader for lighter applications

Hitachi’s new ZW100-6 is a small, yet powerful wheel loader well-suited for lighter jobs, comprising earthmoving, excavation, landscaping, and utility work.

With a working weight of 17,042 pounds, the loader is powered by a Deutz engine rendering 101 horsepower and 9,680 pounds of breakout force. The engine satisfies Tier 4 Final emissions needs via a particular catalytic reduction system that inserts urea into exhaust gas to decrease nitrous-oxide from emissions and eradicates the requirement for a diesel particulate filter.

Hitachi says that the engine additionally highlights a quick power switch that enhances engine output when needed or when driving upward.

Bucket capacity on the ZW100-6 is 1.4 cubic yards, and the machine has a maximum hinge pin height of 11 ft 6 in.

A hydrostatic transmission control system makes the machine simpler to manoeuvre. Operators can pick between two work modes based on the terrain and task. The firm says that the oscillating rear axle renders more stability and traction than loaders with a fixed axle. When operating in wet or slippery conditions, torque proportioning differentials assist in avoiding tire slippage, limiting wear and fuel waste. The ride-control feature reduces machine pitching for a smoother ride and decreases bucket material spillage.

As against earlier models, the ZW100-6 uses 6% less fuel during V-shape loading and 19% less fuel during travelling works. Fuel waste is decreased through the standard auto-idle shutdown.

The ZW100-6 provides a clear picture of the job site with 360-degree visibility from the cab. The repositioned muffler and air intake enhance visibility out the back window. The curved engine hood further improves visibility and safety. Advanced insulation in the cab decreases noise levels, preparing for a quieter work environment.

An easy-to-open wide engine cover enables easy access for ground-level maintenance. The engine air filter has been relocated to the rear of the engine section. The reinforced front frame emphasises heavy-duty axles, designed in-house for increased durability. An optional belly guard can be added to preserve the powertrain and driveshaft.

The ZW100-6 is additionally equipped with Hitachi’s Global e-Service for 24/7 remote monitoring of machine performance. The firm's ConSite program gives automated monthly service reports on daily working hours and fuel consumption data, statistics on the operating mode ratio, and comparison for fuel consumption or efficiency and emissions.

After including the new ZW100-6, the Hitachi ZW-6 wheel loader lineup now has 15 models.
