More reliable and more productive

More reliability and performance. That’s exactly what you get with the ZX160LC-5. Packed full with numerous customer-driven enhancements, it delivers superior productivity, durability, smoothness and fuel efficiency, while keeping operating costs low.

Product highlights

  • Powerful new-generation Isuzu EPA IT4/Stage IIIB-compliant engine delivers higher productivity with continued great fuel efficiency.
  • Easy-to-maintain engine requires no special additional fluids - just ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel and CJ-4 engine oil.
  • Boom, arm and mainframe are so tough, they’re warranted for three years or 10,000 hours, whichever comes first.
  • Special features such as a heated air-suspension seat, additional lighting and a rearview camera are optional. Other options include control pattern change valve; wide variety of track widths, arm lengths, bucket sizes; high-flow auxiliary hydraulic packages; and more.

Remote monitoring

The excavators come standard equipped with three years of ZXLink™ Ultimate. This remote monitoring system will help you better understand costs and jobsite performance by giving you 24/7 online access to machine location, health, utilization, fuel consumption and other valuable information.

Quick and easy maintenance

Vertical spin-on fuel and engine oil filters simplify service and help minimize messes. Filters and checkpoints are conveniently grouped. Easy-to-reach centralized lube banks help make greasing less messy and time-consuming.

New LCD monitor

The new multi-language LCD monitor will track scheduled maintenance and reminders for you. It even provides diagnostic codes to assist in troubleshooting. Just dial and tap to select radio stations, monitor maintenance intervals, set cab temperature and more. The monitor also includes an attachment support system with 11 modes that can be displayed to help fit different attachments.

Spacious cab

You’ll love the spacious cab in this excavator. It features a wider door with more glass and more side-to-side foot room. It even has a more comfortable high-back seat with increased slide range.

More productivity

The HIOS III hydraulic system is the brain behind the brawn, perfectly balancing engine performance with hydraulic flow. It maximizes power output, saves fuel and delivers smooth multifunction hydraulic operation.

Three work modes

Three work modes let you choose a digging style that fits the job. High Productivity (HP) delivers more power and faster hydraulic response. Power (P) delivers a balance of power, speed and fuel economy for normal operation. And Economy (E) maximizes fuel efficiency while delivering an enhanced level of productivity.
