The Hitachi 8.5 Tonne Excavator (ZX85USB-5) is ideal for light residential work and congested areas. With a short-tail swing radius, this excavator works excellently in narrow spaces.

The body is nimble and agile and has excellent operator visibility. When the front swings to the left, the operator’s field of view is widened significantly through the glass door window. The cab is full of new designs, including a multi-function monitor and functional controls, for comfortable operation.

The Hitachi 8.5 tonne excavator is a fuel-thrifty machine too. The new electronically-controlled engine and fuel-efficient hydraulics enhance fuel-saving operations.

Hitachi’s medium excavators guarantee to provide world-class performance, sophisticated design, improved stability and legendary reliability.
