Hitachi Construction Machinery Europe has released a new 15-tonne wheel loader ZW180-5, designed specifically for the European market, which requires high-performance machines with low fuel consumption and minimal impact on the environment.
The loader ZW180-5 is powered by a 6.7-liter turbocharged six-cylinder diesel engine with air cooling producing 169 hp (126 kW) and ensuring high productivity, travel speed and fuel economy. The new model features Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) that reduces particulates without the need for a Diesel Particulate Filter. In comparison with the previous model new ZW180-5 uses 10% less fuel.
