Hitachi Construction Machinery’s ZX55U-6EB is an electric five-tonne excavator that can be cordless, using 39kWh lithium-ion batteries, or wired so it can work while charging from a CEE 400VAC 3-phase power source.
It is exceptionally manoeuvrable thanks to its short tail swing of 1.1m cordless or 1.8 meters when wired. Owners of the ZX55U-6EB can expect reduced maintenance costs and downtime compared to diesel-powered excavators, says Hitachi. The electric drive system’s status, including battery level and motor load factor, can be remotely monitored while a rear camera monitors the cable during wired operation to ensure it is secure. The machine’s reduced external sound levels of 91dB should extend working times and possible locations.
