Hitachi Loader ZW180-5B

The Hitachi Front Loader for hire (ZW180-5B) provides a safer working environment, a comfortable cab with easy-to-use controls, and a machine that responds quickly and precisely.

Ultimate Comfort

Several modifications have been made to the Hitachi Loader to create more room, provide greater visibility and offer a pleasant working environment for operators. Practical and user-friendly
features have been incorporated to help you work quickly and easily and ultimately less fatigued during the day! Making it an ideal choice for hire.

The heated air-suspension seat with adjustable lumbar support can slide back further than ever before, allowing more leg room. The wrist and arm rests and right-hand side console can be adjusted to achieve a comfortable sitting position, and the tilting telescopic and pop-up steering column have also been repositioned to create additional space.

Superior Performance

The Hitachi Wheel Loader can be operated in two modes to ensure lower fuel consumption and maximise productivity. Standard mode is for regular operation such as loading materials, whilst P mode is used for more demanding tasks like heavy duty digging.  In standard mode, fuel consumption is reduced by up to 10%, enhancing environmentally friendly performance.

What’s more this wheel loader comes with a quick power switch, allowing you to quickly change from Standard to P;  super handy when travelling uphill with a full load or when greater breakout force is required. With the clutch cut-off you also get smoother operating for travel speed and pedal depression level, allowing you to have piece of mind when finding a loader for hire.

When travelling at high speed on flat terrain, the clutch can be released early so the wheel loader slows down smoothly with the application of the brake pedal. When travelling slowly uphill, the clutch is released by deeply depressing the pedal to allow for easy unloading.

Sustainability When It Matters

The ZW180-5 loader has been developed to have a positive impact on both safety and sustainability. It satisfies US EPA Tier 4 Interim / EU Stage IIIB emission regulations and
has a variety of fuel-efficient features, which reduce running costs. With greater all-round visibility from the cab, the Hitachi loader also contributes to enhanced safety and the successful operation of any job site.

Safety In Mind

Relax in a safer work environment thanks to excellent visibility from all angles. The view from the cab is enhanced by a windshield without pillars, a large sun visor and additional glass panels in the door.

Looking to the rear of the machine, the counterweight is now visible on both sides, which is particularly useful for working on small job sites. The rear-view monitor allows the operator to see directly behind the machine. The colour display is also easy to view and works automatically when the FNR lever/switch is in reverse position.

Productivity No Worries

The design incorporates a new hydraulic circuit and a smooth lift arm movement, which boost efficiency on the job site. Productivity has also been increased by the wheel loader’s enhanced maneuverability, through automatic gearshift controls.
