Hitachi ZX130lc-5 Loss Of Power

Hitachi zx130lc-5 loss of power and stuck in eco mode. A regular customer of ours rang this in late one Thursday afternoon. We were fully booked and no wear near his site. We pulled through for them and got to their machine later that evening. Luckily the new build site they were on had no noise constraints. We diagnosed the machine fault to be contaminated fuel and filters due to it being run low on fuel and working on a hill side. We got the details, ordered some filters that evening. Filters were collected later the following day and we returned to site re-fitted, bled up and re-tested. Machine was now back fully operational and out of limp mode. We did advise our customer that upon the excavators next service we recommend the fuel system/tank has a service to stop and future breakdowns.
