Our latest investment: Hitachi ZX300-7 Demolition Excavators

September 21, 2023

In the ever-evolving world of construction machinery, the choice of equipment can make or break a project. To ensure our business's success, it's crucial to invest in reliable and efficient machinery. In this blog post, we'll delve deep into the remarkable features and benefits of our new demolition spec excavators, equipped with OQ80 OilQuick Couplers, showcasing how they can positively impact the environment, operator safety and our bottom line.

Fuel Economy

One of the standout features of the Hitachi Zaxis-7 excavators is their impressive fuel economy. In today's environmentally conscious construction industry, these Stage-V compliant machines deliver up to 10% less fuel consumption than their predecessors. This remarkable achievement not only reduces our operating costs but also minimises our environmental footprint.

Operator Control for Fuel Efficiency

Hitachi goes a step further by empowering operators to control fuel efficiency through the innovative ECO gauge. This feature is prominently displayed on the eight-inch multifunctional colour LCD monitor, providing real-time insights to help reduce operating costs while maximising productivity.

Versatility Redefined

The Zaxis-7 excavators are engineered for versatility. Equipped with an enhanced attachment support system on the monitor, operators can quickly switch between different attachments to adapt to various project requirements. Our new OQ80 OilQuick coupler systems allow operators to switch between demolition attachments without the need to leave the cab. This reduces the risk of oil spills, burst hydraulic hoses and greatly improves the up time of our demolition team.

The Perfect Operator Environment

Hitachi has left no stone unturned in creating the perfect operator environment within the redesigned Zaxis-7 excavator cab. The spacious cabin of ZX300LC-7 offer industry-leading comfort and quality. These cabs boast some of the lowest noise levels in the market, with a 20% reduction in vibration compared to the previous generation.

Safety First

Safety is paramount in the construction industry. The new Hitachi Zaxis-7 excavators prioritise safety by offering operators an exceptional view of their surroundings. The cab provides a remarkable 270-degree bird's-eye view thanks to the Aerial Angle® camera system, allowing operators to monitor the job site from all angles. Six image options enable complete control of your safety and that of those around you.


The Hitachi ZX300-7 demolition spec excavators are a game-changer in the construction machinery industry. With their remarkable fuel economy, hydraulic excellence, operator comfort, and enhanced safety features, they set a new standard for efficiency and performance. By choosing these cutting-edge machines we are contributing to a more sustainable and safer construction industry.
