Hitachi Introduces Three Zaxis Dash 5 Compact Excavators

Updated Mar 27, 2013


Hitachi has introduced three new compact excavators to the Zaxis Dash 5 lineup.

The ZX35U-5, ZX50U-5 and ZX60USB-5 has enhanced the customer-driving aspect of the machine including the ability for operators to fit into small spaces making it ideal for rental, commercial/residential building, landscaping, underground and site development segments.

In addition to the ZX35U-5, ZX50U-5 and ZX60USB-5, Hitachi also offers the ZX17U-2 and the ZX27U-3 compact excavator.

Key new features of the ZX60USB-5 and the series’ smaller models – the ZX35U-5 and ZX50U-5 – include:

  • FT4 engine solution: The Dash-5 series excavators feature a Yanmar engine that meets EPA FT4/EU Stage IV emissions regulations. These easy-to-maintain engines require no special additional fluids – just ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel and CJ-4 engine oil.
  • Cab entry and visibility: The updated door design provides improved visibility to the left side of the machine when the door is in the closed position. The new door design also improves the size of the opening for entering the cab – a key improvement over the Dash-3 models.
  • Serviceability: Improved access to the coolers gives operators the ability to more effectively clean the cooling cores.
  • Reliability: The Dash-5 series uses the same major components that have provided a high degree of reliability for the Dash-3 models. As a result, customers can utilize their current front-structure attachments.
