Excavators Feature Reduced Tail Swing

Updated Jun 10, 2013

Hitachi has introduced two new models to its Zaxis Dash-5 line.

The ZX75US-5 and ZX85US-5 are two reduced-tail-swing excavators that feature the same characteristics of the Dash-3 series models.

The reduced tail swing is designed to help operators navigate and work around obstacles and congested jobsites.

The machines also feature a hydraulic-boom with an enhanced boom recirculation function to generate a more aggressive boom speed.   

New Model Features:

  • Comfort – The cab offers enhanced visibility, more side-to-side leg room and a multifunctional monitor.
  • Power – The engines employ a cooled exhaust gas-recirculation (EGR) platform paired with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) to meet EPA Final Tier 4/EU Stage IV emissions regulations.
  • Work modes – Two productivity modes give operators the ability to choose the digging style that fits the job. The “Power” option delivers a balance of speed and fuel economy for normal operation, and the “Economy” option reduces top speed and helps save fuel.
  • Durability – The machines come equipped with a cooling system designed to run cool and quiet. Hitachi’s boom design with three bulkheads within the boom resist torsional stress.
  • Maintenance The ZX75US-5 and ZX85US-5 feature upgrades designed to simplify maintenance. Features include self-cleaning steps, grab bars that provide easy engine access centralized lube banks and grouped service points.

These models can be equipped with a variety of track widths, bucket sizes and high-flow auxiliary hydraulic packages.
