ZX260F-6
Productivity and efficiency combined.

With improved efficiency, reliability and durability, Hitachi’s ZX260F-6 is everything you expect and more.

Available as a Forestry Excavator or Log Loader, the ZX260F-6 is purpose-built with productivity-boosting advantages. You get a fuel-efficient Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV Isuzu engine; no diesel particulate filter (DPF) needed. Two newly designed operator stations with additional legroom, new ergonomic controls and more. Ground level access to all filters and test ports. And tough structures that are built to last.

Features
  • Fuel-efficient EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV Isuzu engine meets rigid emission standards without the need of a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
  • Undercarriage X-frames and upperframe structures are built to last longer than ever before.
  • Larger lower rollers with improved designs and an optional Extreme Duty (XD) undercarriage improve undercarriage life and reliability.
  • Cast counterweights minimize tail swing increase. A large, integrated fuel tank keeps the machine running longer between fill-ups.
  • Longer track options increase machine stability and improve machine lifting capacity by as much as 17%.
  • The ZX260F-6 has the same proven hydraulic systems found in Hitachi’s construction and mining excavators.
  • More efficient hydraulic management system helps keep the machine running cooler.
  • Newly designed operator stations feature 3 inches of additional leg room. The side entry cab is 25% larger.
  • An optional cab forward riser for the rear-entry cab enhances right side visibility.
  • Injection-molded polycarbonate windows in all cabs, and strategically placed floor windows in the rear-entry cabs provide excellent visibility to the tracks and work area.
  • A new, standard rear entry log loader cab provides easy access up the right side and across the back deck.
  • Three cab convenience packages and three seat options allow machines to be configured to suit the operator and the application.
  • Ground level access to all filters and test ports makes maintenance easy and quick.
  • Side by side by side engine, hydraulic and charge air coolers allow easier access for cleaning.
  • A completely revamped electrical system with 35% fewer components increases system reliability.
  • Larger cooling system, reversing cooling fan and improved airflow help keep the machine running cooler.
  • New machine control system allows the machine to be factory “tuned” to increase productivity while reducing fluid consumption.
  • Multi-language color LCD monitor provides intuitive access to machine data and functions.
  • Ergonomically correct short-throw pilot levers provide smooth, precise fingertip control with less effort.
  • Hitachi Foresters are available as road builders, processors, live-heel log loaders and valve-in-head log loaders.
  • For processor configurations, reliable Waratah heads come factory-installed for seamless integration. Through-nose plumbing option routes hoses up and out of harm's way to extend hose life.
