The launch of Tata Hitachi’s cutting-edge EX70 Prime Series Hydraulic Excavator from its Dharwad Plant signals the introduction of the company’s new range of Prime Series Hydraulic Excavators. The 7-ton EX70 is designed to meet all the requirements of customers in terms of performance, dependability, comfort, safety, connectivity, and versatility. It has been designed to provide precision, control, high fuel efficiency, high productivity, superior operator comfort, excellent versatility and unmatched return on investment.
The excavator is powered by a next generation engine with 20% higher torque, which is also compatible with futuristic emission norms. Technologies like auto idle, auto deceleration, dial type throttle, dual work modes, fuel saving pump system, and a hydraulic regeneration system ensure minimum fuel consumption. In addition, Hitachi’s advanced hydraulic system, iOHS (Intelligent Optimum Hydraulic System) ensures higher productivity with enhanced fuel efficiency. The machine is also easily customisable with various attachments and a variety of bucket sizes for a wide range of applications.
Tata Hitachi’s promise of durability extends to the EX70, with features that include a strengthened arm bucket joint, reinforced HD track frame, track guard as standard fitment, and strengthened bucket. Higher reliability is ensured through proven Hitachi technology as well as reliable hydraulic aggregates that are tested and validated to international standards.
The EX70 Prime Series Hydraulic Excavator boasts of smoother operating levers that entail 30% reduced effort of operations. All the operations, including travel and dozer, are 100% pilot controlled. The cabin also has an FM Radio with USB support, the option for an air conditioner, and weight adjustable suspension seat with multiple adjustments. Safety features include a mandatory seat belt, front guard, anti-skid tapes, baffle plates to separate hot and cold zones, and a starter motor with thermal cut off to prevent over cranking.
The EX70 comes equipped with InSite - Tata Hitachi’s telematics suite that helps in online monitoring of the operation, location, health and alarm status of the machine. This greatly enhances the ability to reduce machine downtime, thereby boosting performance and productivity.
The reliability and durability of Tata Hitachi machines ensure longer service intervals by default. At the same time, the company’s proven and widespread service support ensures easy and faster availability of service and spares, which is further augmented by its extensive fleet of Field Diagnostic Vehicles (FDVs) and mobile workshops. Finally, an extended warranty programme ensures complete peace of mind to customers.
