Hitachi Construction Machinery Europe international sales manager, Paul Burger, said that following the European certification process, he expected the first units to be sold in Germany, where there is a strong interest in environmentally friendly equipment.

Powered by a 122 kW engine, the excavator can be fitted with a 0.51 - 1.10 m3 bucket and offers a digging force of 158 kN. Maximum dig depth is 6.67 m.
