Tata Hitachi's Global Initiative, the ZAXIS 220 LC - GI Series Hydraulic Excavator, was recently launched at Chennai in the presence of a distinguished gathering of customers and Tata Hitachi officials. The large audience attending the event which was held at Le Royal Meridien appreciated the novel features and offerings of the new product. The ZAXIS 220 LC will be rolled out of Tata Hitachi's plant at Kharagpur, West Bengal, which is one of the biggest, state-of-the art manufacturing facilities in India.

Tata Hitachi formerly known as Telcon (originally a division of Tata Motors) has been in the forefront of the Construction Equipment business since the early 1960s. A technical collaboration with Hitachi Construction Machinery Limited (HCM), Japan started in 1984 for the manufacture of world class hydraulic excavators in India. The Construction Equipment business was made an independent entity in 1999 and over the years HCM acquired stake in this entity (currently at 60%, the rest being with Tata Motors). Telcon is now Tata Hitachi Construction Machinery Company Limited. The new brand identity was launched on 4th December 2012.

Again, in keeping with its stature as the trendsetter in the Industry, Tata Hitachi is now proud to introduce its ZAXIS GI Series of hydraulic excavators in India, through the launch of the new TATA HITACHI ZAXIS 220 LC, a 20 Ton class Tracked Hydraulic Excavator.

ZAXIS 220 LC has been designed with a rock-solid undercarriage, sturdy upperstructure and reinforcements on front attachments which have resulted in enhanced durability. The operators' cabin has been designed with special focus on operators comfort, safety and ergonomics.

Features such as Auto Idle, Power Modes, Work Modes and longer change intervals of consumables enable the customers in achieving significant savings in operating costs.

Tata Hitachi recognizes the need to offer speedier, more efficient and cost effective construction solutions to a nation on the cusp of rapid growth.
