Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV (HCME) has unveiled new ZX26U-5 mini excavator as part of its impressive new line-up at Intermat 2015 show in Paris, France.
Designed to be user-friendly, offering high levels of performance, comfort and easy maintenance, the Zaxis-5 model can be easily transported between job sites with two additional buckets on a 3.5-tonne trailer.
It is ideal for working in narrow or confined spaces, and is suitable for utilities, foundation work, landscaping and indoor demolition or construction projects.
Due to greater hydraulic efficiency, the new Hitachi mini excavator is capable of higher levels of productivity than previous Zaxis models, using the same amount of fuel.
Joep van den Maagdenberg, Product Specialist at HCME, says: “The design of the new Zaxis-5 mini excavators is based on the concept of user-friendliness, so we believe they are ideal for first-time users of the machine, such as in the rental market, for example. The ZX26U-5 will be an invaluable addition to any fleet, thanks to its versatility for working on a variety of job sites with different attachments, and its impressive performance levels.”
Noise levels are lower than previous Zaxis models and competitors’ machines, allowing operators to work more comfortably. The enlarged front window has enhanced visibility of the job site and the entrance step has been lowered to provide easier access.
