UK first for wheeled loader

Hitachi Construction Machinery (UK) has sold the UK’s first Hitachi ZW310-5 wheel loader to Fareham-based waste management company TJ Transport.

The ZW310-5 has been designed to maximise efficiency, productivity, operator comfort, safety and serviceability, while reducing its environmental impact.

A 12.9-litre six-cylinder Hino water-cooled turbo engine produces powerful levels of digging and travelling performance, while the two engine modes provide a 10% reduction in fuel consumption through use of the Eco mode when the full capability of the machine is not required.

A new hydraulics circuit optimises loading speed by combining operation of the bucket and lift arm for loading, while prioritising use of the 4.4m bucket for unloading.

The acquisition of the Hitachi ZW310-5 coincides with TJ Transport expanding its fleet to more than 100 vehicles for the first time.
