Gain a competitive edge with the upgraded ZX470LC-6
November 30, 2015


At Hitachi, efficiency, reliability and durability are in our genes – built into our large mining excavators and passed down to our line of construction excavators. So you get maximum performance, no matter which Hitachi excavator you’re running. And the ZX470LC-6 proves it.

This upgraded, production-class excavator is built with time-saving and cost-efficient advantages. The ZX470LC-6 features a fuel-efficient EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV Isuzu engine that meets rigid emission standards – no diesel particulate filter (DPF) needed. You also get generous swing torque, digging force and lift capacity. And simplified maintenance with features like a battery disconnect switch and engine and hydraulic oil sample ports. Add it all up, and the ZX470LC-6 gives you a competitive edge.
