Hitachi ZX450 Cabin: The introduction
When dealing with heavy duty machinery such as excavators, there will be times when some parts will receive damage more so than others. That’s why when there are already so much damage on specific parts, business owners tend to replace them. Obviously, this will help you save a lot more than you would if you’d opt to purchase another excavator. But of course, you have to acquire parts which are durable to take on these applications. Well, an excavator cabin that highlights its strength is the cabin of the Hitachi ZX450. Luckily, I was able to closely inspect this part. So if you want to know what I have to say about it, then read on my review below.
Hitachi ZX450 Cabin: Key features
In order to enhance the productivity of our operators, we must equip them with the most ideal machines (or in this case, machine part). One way to do is to ensure that they have a clear, unobstructed view of their area. Of course, this would not only allow them to improve their performance as they are able to maneuver confidently. More than that, it will ultimately help prevent any sort of mishap.
Well, the Hitachi guys redesigned the ZX450 cabin for that specific purpose. From the seat, you will surely get an excellent view of the job site. They also improved the visibility for the right downward view. Therefore, you can increase your confidence in operating this massive machine.
Basically, the Hitachi ZX450 cab is the CRES II or the Center pillar Reinforced Structure rigid cab. Hitachi designed this cabin with operator safety in mind. It features an increase in safety in case of tipping. In essence, the closed-section pillar can withstand vertical and horizontal external forces. The reinforcing members at central areas also help with that. In other words, this will reduce the potential of any operator injuries in the event of an accident.
Another reason why this cabin is such a big hit is because of its undeniable spacious interior. It actually measures at 1005mm wide x 1795mm high. With that, you can enjoy more leg room and space to totally relax despite your demanding work. You can even install a reclining seat since there’s ample space for that. In short, this will lessen your stress and fatigue as you don’t feel cramped inside your work area.
The Hitachi ZX450 cabin is pressurised to keep the dust out. Not only that but the noise and the vibrations are also at a minimum. That’s thanks to the elastic mounts which are filled with silicone oil. Aside from those, this cabin has sliding windows. Because of that installation, the operator can easily communicate directly to other workers. Plus, there’s a flat floor that promotes easy cleaning. Finally, it’s definitely worth mentioning that this cab conforms to the ISO standards so you’re sure to get the best out of this excavator part.
