LCH

Post #1 by Hammer man » Fri Jul 24, 2009 10:32 pm

Hi all :) .I know what LC stands for,Long Carriage/Crawler.But what does the H stand for?My machine is a Zaxis 350 LCH.I thought the H might be for Heavy.As looking around,i see you can sometimes spec a heavy version of counter weight.On the Hitachi site,i think the standard counter weight is about 6.6 tons(or something like that)for the 350/3,but you can spec a heavy version that weighs aprox 7.4tons(or something like that :lol: )
Nobody i speak to can really answer this.
Cheers,Neil :)

Hi Neil,

You really need an expert on Hitachi nomenclature to answer this one. :dizzy:

Perhaps SRB could answer this cos I know he's red hot on Cat nomenclature, but must say I don't know. :oops:

Bang on there Bruce oz :claphands: .I asked the man from HM Plant yesterday(G.B Hitachi dealer)& his description of "H" was pretty much exactly what you said.Plus the LCH has the reinforced ribed section at the base of the stick on the face above the q/hitch. :)
