Hitachi Fuel Advantage Program offers big benefits

June 27, 2016

Hitachi customer and dealer talking on a job site.

There’s still time to enroll in the Hitachi Fuel Advantage Program. Hitachi is so confident in fuel efficiency and powerful ZXLinkTM monitoring, that you’ll get paid back if your Hitachi machines don’t meet target consumption rates. Hitachi’s fuel consumption rates are 10% more efficient than Cat®’s in direct comparison to equivalent models.1

  • Sign up for the Hitachi Fuel Advantage Program

To participate, enroll your new Hitachi machine purchased or leased between Nov. 2, 2015, and Aug. 31, 2016, online within 60 days of settlement. Once enrolled, a machine is eligible for a Hitachi Fuel Advantage Reward for up to three years or 5,000 hours, whichever comes first, from the date of purchase.

  • Drive improvement with ZXLink.

You can’t improve what you don’t measure. The Hitachi Fuel Advantage Program includes ZXLink, which gives you quarterly reports with details on machine performance – fuel consumption, engine load utilization, idle time and more, so you can keep track of your success and drive efficiency improvements.2

  • Get paid back if your GPH exceeds target consumption.

At the end of each year, if your actual average fuel consumption as measured by ZXLink exceeds the program target fuel consumption level, Hitachi will pay you back. You’ll get a credit of $1 per USD/gallon (or $1 per CAD/liter) for exclusive use at your Hitachi construction excavator dealership.3

  • Have a $100 conversation with us.

Discuss your first quarterly Hitachi Fuel Advantage report with your dealer, and he’ll give you a code redeemable online for a $100 personal fuel card from your choice of participating fuel retailers. He’ll also give you suggestions for operational improvements that could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
