More horsepower, more productivity

The ZX470LC-5’s greater horsepower, combined with optimized hydraulics for bigger arm- and bucket-digging forces, will let you get more work done in a day. Loaded with numerous new features, the ZX470LC-5 delivers superior productivity and durability, while keeping operating costs low.

Product highlights

  • Fuel-efficient IT4 emission-certified Isuzu diesel engine delivers power without compromise in all conditions.
  • Generous flow, arm force and swing torque help speed cycles and keep you on schedule.
  • Low-effort joysticks, a highly efficient HVAC system and plenty of storage space will keep you comfortable.
  • Highly efficient, heavy-duty cooling system keeps things cool, even in the toughest environments. Reversible fan helps clean debris from radiator screen.
  • Machine Information Center (MIC) captures vital machine performance and utilization data.
  • Ergonomically correct short-throw pilot levers provide smooth, precise fingertip control with less movement or effort.
  • ZXLink™ Ultimate wireless communication system with three years of service.

Powerful engine

The powerful EPA Interim Tier 4/EU Stage IIIB Isuzu diesel engine quietly goes about its business, getting the most out of every drop of precious fuel while meeting rigid emissions standards. The result? You can put them to work anywhere, including nonattainment areas.

Spacious cab

You’ll love the spacious cab in this excavator. It features a wider door with more glass, more side-to-side foot room, a heated air-suspension seat for more comfort and a new easy-to-read and easy-to-operate multifunction monitor. And a rearview camera further enhances operator convenience.

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. Multiple sensors instantly feed automatic micro adjustments for increased hydraulic power to maintain steady, sure movements. Boom, stick and bucket cylinders feature regenerative flow for faster down movements, extremely fine control and multitasking. 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.

Built tough

Welded bulkheads within the boom resist torsional stress for unsurpassed durability. Booms, arms and mainframes are so tough, they’re warranted for three years, or 10,000 hours, whichever comes first. You’ll also continue to profit from durability-enhancing “extras” such as reinforced D-channel side frames, heavy-duty cooling systems and extended service intervals.
