The Hitachi Zaxis 850LC-3 is designed for quarries, demolition and heavy construction jobs. The pairing of Isuzu’s Tier-3-certified 532-net-peak-hp AH-6WG1XYSA-03 engine with Hitachi’s HIOS III hydraulic system has increased engine output as well as bucket and arm digging forces. Operators can tailor machine performance to the job by selecting one of three power modes — Economy, Power or High Power. HP ensures efficient arm roll-in during deep excavation. The Hitachi HIOS III hydraulic system uses arm and bucket regenerative systems to boost front attachment speed. A boom mode switch, when turned on, reduces vibration and impact shock-loads due to less lifting or pulling of the body, increasing comfort.
