Rugged, reliable and responsive powerhouse

You asked. We listened. The ZX290LC-5 comes with even more visibility enhancement features such as more glass in the cab, additional mirrors and an optional rear camera. Loaded with numerous customer-driven enhancements, the ZX Dash-5 Series delivers superior productivity and durability, while keeping operating costs low.

Product highlights

  • Greater arm-digging force, bucket lifting force, lift capacities, swing speed and torque, horsepower and draw bar pull.
  • The HIOS III hydraulic system maximizes productivity while retaining smooth and controlled operations.
  • Roomier cab with larger door and more glass for better visibility. You’ll also love the added side-to-side foot room. 
  • Fuel-efficient IT4 emission-certified Isuzu diesel engine delivers power without compromise in all conditions.
  • Extended engine and hydraulic fluid service intervals will increase your uptime and reduce daily operating costs.

Powerful engine

The powerful Interim Tier 4 (IT4) Isuzu diesel engine will help you get the most out of every drop of precious fuel while meeting rigid emissions standards - so you can put them to work anywhere, including nonattainment areas. What’s best, they are easy to maintain and require no special additional fluids - just ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel and CJ-4 engine oil.

Spacious cab

The spacious cab features a wider door with more glass, more side-to-side foot room, a more comfortable high-back seat and a new easy-to-read and easy-to-operate multifunction monitor.

Options such as a heated air-suspension seat and rearview camera will make the cab even more comfortable and functional.

Remote monitoring

The ZX Dash-5 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.

More productivity

The HIOS III hydraulic system is the brain behind the brawn, perfectly balancing engine performance with hydraulic flow. It combines a hydraulic-boost system with an enhanced boom-recirculation function to generate more aggressive boom/arm speed. Since the arm returns to the dig position faster, you can move more dirt in a day.

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.

More uptime, less expense

Grouped service points make your daily routine easier. And with easy-to-check sight gauges and fluid reservoirs, quick-change remote mounted vertical filters and extended engine and hydraulic oil-service intervals, you’ll be able to minimize downtime for periodic maintenance.
