Pumped up performance

The ZX670LC-5’s pumped-up performance means it will deliver more buckets of earth-moving power each day, even under the harshest of jobsite conditions. Loaded with numerous new features, the ZX670LC-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.
  • Machine Information Center (MIC) captures vital machine performance and utilization data.
  • Upgraded lighting package (two cab lights and two boom lights), severe-duty water/fuel filter and hydraulic-driven reversible fan are standard.
  • Hydraulically driven reversible fan for cleaning debris from the radiator screen, fan also runs only when needed, reducing noise, fuel consumption and operating costs.
  • New monitor incorporates radio and HVAC controls and screen for new standard rear camera. Make simple oil-flow adjustments for attachments using the monitor inside the cab.
  • Extended engine and hydraulic fluid service intervals increase uptime and reduce daily operating costs.
  • Also available in mass-excavation configuration.
  • 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.
