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.

Product highlights:

  • 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.
More productivity

More productivity

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.

Fuel-efficient engine

Fuel-efficient engine

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 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.

Improved hydraulics

Improved hydraulics

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

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.

More control

More control

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.

More visibility

More visibility

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.

More information

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.

More durability

More durability

Box-section track frames, thick-plate single-sheet mainframe and superior ground clearance and industry-exclusive double-seal swing bearing deliver rock-solid durability. Reinforced D-channel side frames provide maximum cab and component protection. And with large idlers, rollers and strutted links, the sealed and lubricated undercarriage delivers long, reliable performance.

Easy maintenance

Easy maintenance

There’s no reason servicing an excavator should be complicated. From the self-cleaning steps and convenient grab bars that provide easy engine access, to the centralized lube banks and grouped service points – the ZX85US -5 is loaded with time- and-money saving advantages. Grouped service points make quick work of the daily routine. Easy-to-check sight gauges and fluid reservoirs, quick-change remote mounted vertical filters, and extended engine and hydraulic oil-service intervals minimize downtime for periodic maintenance.
