2016 Hitachi Construction Machinery Reduced-Tail-Swing Excavators ZX85USB-5
Productivity and flexibility combined
The ZX85USB-5 ultra-short radius excavator is perfect for light residential work and projects in congested areas. The independent swing-boom lets you dig parallel to walls and foundations, and the standard backfill blade further expands versatility. Rubber crawler pads make this machine perfect for big landscaping jobs. This excavator delivers all the power, smoothness, precision and ease of operation you’ve come to expect from our larger Hitachi excavators – in an easy-to-maneuver package.
- Reduced fuel consumption with a cleaner, more powerful EPA Final Tier 4/EU Stage IV engine.
- Rubber crawler pads, steel track shoes, or continuous rubber belt options let you choose the best undercarriage for your project.
- Spacious cab is equipped with easy-to-navigate enhanced LCD monitor that provides easy access to machine information and functionality.
- Heavy-duty cooling system keeps your drivers cool, even in harsh environments or at high altitudes.
The reduced-tail-swing design makes this Ultrashort excavator highly productive in places where traditional excavators fear to tread. Smooth hydraulics and outstanding multifunction operation further add to their close-quarters capabilities.
The Yanmar EPA IT/4EU Stage IV diesel engine delivers fuel-efficient and reliable performance. The addition of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) reduce particulate and NOx. Both passive and auto cleaning of the DPF occur on the fly automatically. Plus, auto-idle automatically reduces engine speed when hydraulics aren’t in use, and auto-shutdown further preserves fuel.
Two power modes
Two work modes let you choose the digging style that best fits the job. The E (economy) mode is perfect for light-duty work, and also reduces noise levels. The P (standard) mode provides an excellent balance of power and fuel economy for most tasks.
When you operate the ZX85US -5, you’ll quickly notice the smooth, responsive way our excavators go about their business. The advanced hydraulic system perfectly balances engine performance with hydraulic flow. The hydraulic system combines with an enhanced boom recirculation function to generate more aggressive boom/arm speed, returning the arm to the dig position faster, so you can move more dirt in a day.
More comfortable cab
Despite its short stature, the ZX85US-5 provides plenty of in-cab amenities. Perched on silicone-filled mounts, the ZX Dash-5 cab isolates noise and vibration. The spacious interior provides plenty of legroom and all-day comfort. Plus, narrow front-cab posts, large overhead glass and numerous mirrors – including a couple on the counterweight – provide excellent all-around visibility.
Ergonomically correct short-throw pilot levers provide smooth, precise fingertip control with less movement or effort. Pushbuttons in the right lever allow fingertip control of auxiliary hydraulic flow for operating attachments.
Standard left hand boom/frame light, plus optional right hand boom/frame light and cab/ boom lights provide illumination to extend your working day beyond daylight hours.
Multi-language LCD monitor and rotary dial provide access to a wealth of info and functions. Just dial and tap to select work modes, check diagnostic codes, monitor maintenance intervals, set cab temperature and make simple attachment hydraulic flow adjustments, plus more, depending on machine.
