Hitachi to show off 30 machines at Bauma


Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) (HCME) has announced it is bringing more than 30 off-highway machines to Bauma 2019, including several of its latest mini-excavators and compact wheel loaders.

A broad selection of Zaxis-6 mini and compact excavators, which have been updated to comply with Stage V emissions regulations, as well as the company’s first ICT hydraulic excavator with machine control in Europe, the ZX210X-6, will be on display at the trade show.

HCME is confident the hydraulic machine can complete typical excavation projects up to 50% faster than standard models.

Some of the smaller models in the range, including the long front ZX210LC-6 excavator as well as the ZX135US-6 with a telescopic arm and the same model with a sliding arm, will also be in the line-up of vehicles to appear at the Munich construction trade show in April.

Visitors to Bauma this year will be able to test their skills on the HCME dump truck simulator and get a virtual view of a selection of some of the company’s machines.

“Our team has worked hard to create an engaging and stimulating environment on our stand this year at Bauma,” says HCME president Makoto Yamazawa. “With such a wide variety of our construction equipment on display, we hope that there will be something of interest for everyone.”

Bauma is held every three years at Messe München in Germany. The last event, in in 2016, attracted a total of 3,425 exhibitors (1,272 from Germany and 2,153 from abroad) from 58 countries, and covered 605,000m² of exhibition space. Over 583,000 visitors from 219 countries visited the fair, setting a new attendance record.
