The ZV-R rammers are equipped with a low-vibration handle, user-friendly throttle lever and visible oil gauge. They offer a powerful compaction force and are easy to manoeuvre, which makes them suitable for difficult working conditions, Hitachi says. The ZV-RL and ZV-RLS models are lightweight and feature Pipe Guard engine protection.
The ZV-P vibratory plate compactors are described as having a compact, user-friendly design. Hitachi also manufactures the ZV-PR reversible vibratory plates.
Hitachi offers several walk-behind rollers. The levers and switches on the ZV-W models are particularly designed for easy operation, Hitachi says. They can be cleaned quickly using the pull-out sprinkler nozzle and other maintenance jobs can be carried out easily, thanks to the one-touch keyed gull wing engine cover.
HCME product specialist Joep van den Maagdenberg said: “Compaction equipment is a significant addition to the wide range of Hitachi construction machinery now available in the European market.”
