ZX160LC-6
Small package with loads of productivity

More efficiency, reliability and durability. That’s exactly what you get with the ZX160LC-6.  The fuel-efficient EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV Isuzu engine meets rigid emission standards and there’s no diesel particulate filter (DPF) needed. The addition of standard upperstructure handrails make the machine safer and more accessible, and the easy-to-operate controls are smooth and responsive – just what you’ve come to expect from Hitachi. Maintenance has also been simplified with features like a battery disconnect switch.

The ZX160LC-6 comes standard equipped with three years of ZXLink™ Ultimate, giving you 24/7 online access to machine location, health, utilization, fuel consumption, and other valuable information – so you can better understand costs and jobsite performance.

Features
  • ZX130-6 final tier 4 technology does not require a DPF filter.The FT4 engine solution does not require a diesel particulate filter (DPF), saving service time and lowering operating costs.
  • An Isuzu EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV engine delivers fuel-efficient and reliable performance. Fuel pressure, timing and volume are precisely regulated by electronic control for efficient combustion with Isuzu’s common-rail fuel injection system.
  • Auto-idle, which reduces engine speed when hydraulics aren’t in use, and auto-shutdown contribute to fuel efficiency.
  • ZX130-6 D channel side framesReinforced D-channel side frames provide maximum cab and component impact protection.
  • ZX130-6 tungsten carbide jointTungsten-carbide-coated surfaces protect the critical bucket-to-arm joint.
  • ZX130-6 thick-plate single-sheet mainframeThick-plate single-sheet mainframe, box-section track frames and industry exclusive double-seal swing bearing deliver rock-solid durability.
  • ZX130-6 undercarriageWith large idlers, rollers and strutted track links, the sealed and lubricated undercarriage is built for the long haul.
  • Our FT4 field-proven technology is simple and efficient, employing cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR). An improved piston design allows particulate matter to be burned in cylinder, so there’s no need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
  • The pressurized fuel system improves fuel injector operation, and the fuel recirculation system helps prevent fuel gelling in cold climates – so you can maintain maximum productivity.
  • It’s not always about brute force. Unmatched metering and smooth multifunction operation provide finesse and precision.
  • Stay on schedule with generous swing torque, digging force and lift capacity.
  • Muscle through tough digging by pressing the power-boost button.
  • ZX130-6 LCD monitorMulti-language LCD monitor and rotary dial provide easy access to machine info and functions. Turn and tap to select work modes, monitor maintenance intervals, check diagnostic codes and set cab temperature. Control oil flow and toggle between dig and thumb modes with a  programmable thumb attachment mode.
  • ZX130-6 joystickErgonomically correct short-throw pilot levers provide smooth, precise control with less effort. Pushbuttons in the right lever allow control of auxiliary hydraulic flow for attachments. Optional sliding switch provides proportional speed control, giving you full command from your fingertips.
  • ZX130-6 unobstructed visibilityGet unobstructed all-around visibility thanks to a new hood design paired with a wide expanse of front, side and overhead glass and mirrors, plus a standard rearview camera.
  • ZX130-6 optional lightsOptional cab and right-side boom lights provide extra illumination to extend your production.
  • Automatic, high-velocity bi-level climate-control system with automotive-style adjustable louvers helps keep the glass clear, the cab comfortable and the operator productive.
  • Operators get maximum support from a sculpted mechanical suspension high-back seat. For even more comfort, opt for the air-suspension heated seat.
  • ZX130-6 monitorEasy-to-navigate LCD monitor tracks various fluid levels and issues scheduled maintenance alerts and diagnostic information.
  • ZX130-6 centralized lube banksCentralized lube banks place zerks within easy reach, making greasing less messy and time-consuming.
  • ZX130-6 filtersEngine oil, fuel and hydraulic pilot oil filters are all located on the same side at ground level for easy servicing.
  • ZX130-6 upperstructure handrailsUpperstructure handrails provide added safety when servicing the engine compartment, and a larger hood gives you better engine accessibility.
  • The ZX160LC-6 is standard equipped with Hitachi’s ZXLink™ system, giving you the power to monitor your fleet without ever leaving your seat through an easy-to-use website. Access fleet location, functions, hours, fuel consumption, alerts and other essential machine data. Know which machines are earning and which are idling – all while keeping preventive-maintenance tabs on each piece of equipment. View location and alert information with an app for iOS or Android devices. Plus, ZXLink can be set up to send alerts via email or text so you’re always in the know.
