The Hitachi 490LC-6 Ultra High Demolition Machine is the newest UHD machine from Hitachi Construction Machinery in the UK. This excavator has a three piece boom with a modular joint system which ensures maximum utilisation by changing from high reach equipment to standard arm in just 30 minutes.
It can be deployed in gooseneck, straight boom or high reach set up.
The cab is a ROPS/FOPS and tilts hydraulically for improved operator visibility and comfort. Visibility is further enhanced by the provision of a CCTV system with cameras mounted close to the working attachment and at the rear of the machine. There is also an integrated dust suppression system with the water jets strategically placed close to the attachment for maximum effect.
This machine can operate a 3 ton attachment at a working from ground level height of 28 meters.
