Hitachi ships first excavator following dissolution of joint venture with Deere & Company
Hitachi Construction Machinery Americas Inc. (HCMA) has shipped the first medium-sized Hitachi ZX210LC-6 utility hydraulic excavator built for the North American market. The ZX210LC-6 excavator is the first of many Hitachi machines that will soon be available throughout North America and Latin America following the dissolution of the joint venture between Hitachi Construction Machinery Group and Deere & Company.
Hitachi utility excavators available in the Americas, including the ZX210LC-6 model, are equipped with Solution Linkage Assist, a proprietary machine control feature, which enables efficient work to be performed without over-excavating the target work surface, as well as a hydraulic system that features high-efficiency Aerial Angle technology to help improve worksite safety. These machines are designed to help contractors maintain the quality of work amid labor shortages and the decline in experienced operators, as well as to contribute to improved productivity and safe operation.
Local sales for the latest Hitachi-built line of equipment will start in North America in March 2022.
