Hitachi ZX870LC-6 excavator
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. And our largest production-class excavators, the ZX670LC-6 and ZX870LC-6, prove it.

These efficient, upgraded models are packed with productivity-boosting advantages. The ZX670LC-6 and ZX870LC-6 feature fuel-efficient EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV Isuzu engines – no diesel particulate filter (DPF) needed. You also get generous swing torque, digging force and lift capacity. Convenient machine access with steps and upperstructure walkways. And simplified maintenance with features like a battery disconnect switch, and engine and hydraulic oil sample ports. With the ZX670LC-6 and ZX870LC-6 in your fleet, you’ll experience the powerful performance Hitachi is known for.
