Coming shortly to its Dash-6 excavators — starting with the ZX350LC-6 — Hitachi previewed its new Hitachi Solution Linkage Integrated Grade Control with Topcon at Conexpo.

The system lets operators set a grade and hold it, simplifying machine operation, increasing efficiency and lowering daily operating costs.

“With Solution Linkage Integrated Grade Control with Topcon, our customers will combine the smooth hydraulics and fast cycle times of Hitachi excavators with advanced grade technology in one package,” said Jonny Spendlove, product marketing manager, for excavators at Hitachi Construction Machinery – Americas. “This technology is all about saving time and making good operators great. We’re looking forward to providing that increased efficiency for our customers. Grade Control is truly the future of the excavator industry.”

The factory-installed system means key components such as sensors and harnesses are protected.

The new solution will be available in the United States and Canada.
