Hitachi expands ZW wheel loader range

Hitachi has expanded its ZW wheel loader range with the ZW180PL.

The new model has been equipped with Parallel Linkage, which makes it suitable for use with a wide range of attachments.

The ZW180PL can be used with fork attachments, log grapples and large volume buckets for loading relatively light materials such as woodchips, snow and compost. When the arm of a PL wheel loader is raised, the change in angle of the attachment is minimal (less than three degrees), compared to a standard wheel loader (more than 26 degrees).

The PL range also includes the ZW140PL, ZW150PL and ZW180PL.
