With a large bucket capacity, the Hitachi ZW310-6 is ideal for loading and carrying in quarries, waste handling applications and road construction projects. The quick power switch increases engine output when more power is instantly required or when driving uphill, and the traction force has been increased by 25% for easier loading.  Visibility has been enhanced by a curved rear engine hood as well as the rear-view camera, combined with 360° visibility from the cab, its one of the safest models in the industry.  The ZW310-6 is also incredibly durable, thanks to the robust frame, powerful engine and high-quality radiators and components.

Designed with you in mind...

  • New Stage IV-compliant engine contains a high-volume cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system, a common rail-type fuel injection system and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC). The non-use of DPF further reduces fuel consumption and maintenance costs.
  • A 6% fuel saving during V-shaped loading operation (5% load & carry) compared to previous model, with no loss in productivity.
  • Lock-up transmission available as standard further reduces fuel consumption on loading and carrying applications.
  • Quick power switch increases engine output when more power in required instantly or when going up hill.
  • Class leading build quality.
  • Front lift arm has a thicker cross tube to provide more strength against torsion.
  • A parallel lift arm provides parallel movement from ground level. Perfect for loading and unloading items with increased load control.
  • The speed of the lift arm has been improved and it lowers smoothly for increased productivity. Its easy to control using the auto leveller and anti-drift system.
  • A selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system injects urea into exhaust gas to reduce nitrogen oxide from emissions. This cutting-edge technology not only helps the environment, but also complies with EU Stage IV emission regulations.
  • Low-noise engine results in a quieter performance, making it suitable for working in urban areas.
  • Optional auto shutdown feature helps to prevent fuel wastage, as well as reduce noise levels, exhaust emissions and CO2 level.
  • Optional belly guard protects the machine’s powertrain and driveshaft from potential damage caused by materials on the ground.
  • High quality radiators improve resistance to corrosion and enhance the overall durability.
  • Newly designed rear grill prevents material for a job site entering the radiator compartment.
  • Reversible cooling fan that can be activated manually every 30 minutes, ensures that the radiator stays clean during operation.
  • Remote monitoring Global e-Service to monitor machine remotely via Owner’s Site (24/7 online access) and ConSite (an automatic monthly report). These help to maximise efficiency, minimise downtime and improve overall performance.
  • Full manufacturers warranty.
  • Good residual values, with a worldwide after sales and service network.
  • The spacious cab creates with air suspension seat provides a comfortable working environment, while the 360° panoramic view helps to increase safety and productivity.
  • User-friendly operation and wide view mirrors for increased visibility.
  • A rear-view camera contributes to excellent all-round visibility and safety on the job site.
  • Sound insulation significantly reduces noise levels and provides a quieter working environment.
  • To ensure a smooth drive on all kinds of terrain, the ride control feature prevents unnecessary pitching via the movement of the lift arm cylinders.
  • Optional joystick steering system enables high levels of productivity with effortless steering, and incorporates a number of useful functions.
  • Different lever control available to suit operator preference.
  • The simultaneous movement of the bucket and lift arm ensures a smooth digging operation. To reduce the shock that occurs when the lift arm comes to a halt, a smart hydraulic valve controls the flow in the lift arm circuit.
  • A multifunctional LCD colour monitor displaying useful information at a glance, such as fuel and urea levels, oil temperature and power mode. It also includes the display for the easy-to-use rear-view camera, which enhances visibility for a safe operation.
  • Excellent rear view due to the curved engine hood.
  • Several storage compartments within the cab.
  • The engine air filter is located to the rear of the engine compartment, providing easier access at ground level for maintenance, with the urea tank also positioned for convenience.
  • Easy to open wide engine covers and easily accessed battery compartment.
  • Battery disconnect switch included as standard. Helping to avoid electrical accidents and retain battery power during long-term storage.
  • Auto reverse radiator to reduce build-up of debris in the cooling system.
