Tata Hitachi Launches ZAXIS 220 LC – GI Series Hydraulic Excavator

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.

Hitachi Hydraulic Excavator

The fusion of these powerful identities in the Tata Hitachi brand energizes and revitalizes the company's continued quest to provide quality equipment with the latest technologies to the Infrastructure and mining segments so vital to the nation's progress.

The company offers a full range of construction solutions which include Hydraulic Excavators, Backhoe Loaders, Wheel Loaders, Soil Compactors, Motor Graders, Transit Mixers and Dumpers.

Tata Hitachi is the leader in the Indian hydraulic excavator market, with a range that straddles the diverse requirements of the customer.

The ZAXIS series of excavators exemplifies this. With pioneering offerings in the hydraulic excavator range, Tata Hitachi has consistently broken new barriers in the evolution of CE Industry in the country.

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. The new ZAXIS GI series from Tata Hitachi has taken the Zaxis technology to the next level through its features and offerings. The new ZAXIS 220 LC is powered by a Japanese engine which delivers a huge 170 PS output (14 % higher), for achieving higher production in tight job schedules. HIOS-III (Human & Intelligent Operation System), which is the latest in Hydraulic Technology offering from Hitachi across the globe, coupled with a powerful engine has helped in increasing the fuel efficiency by 10% and with swifter operations. 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.

ZAXIS GI series features on board ICX (Data Controller) and Global e-service, enable data downloads, machine location identification and machine maintenance and performance monitoring by the customer. 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. ZAXIS 220 LC also goes green, by its environment friendly engine conforming to US EPS Tier 2 and European EC Tier 2 standards, and consumes optimum fuel as per the work requirement. Tata Hitachi recognizes the need to offer speedier, more efficient and cost effective construction solutions to a nation on the cusp of rapid growth. This product is focused on quicker completion of work cycles through its increased productivity so that projects can be completed speedily.

With the launch of the ZAXIS GI series, the Indian construction scenario would take a quantum leap into a new dimension of excavation work in Infrastructure applications. The Zaxis GI series of Excavators will mark the beginning of a new era for Tata Hitachi as ZX 220 LC will cater to the Indian as well as the global construction equipment markets through exports.
