ZAXIS-5: Enhanced power and speed


Although the ZAXIS 135US has been created to help increase productivity levels on the job site, it has also been designed to have a reduced impact on the environment. The new excavator has been equipped with powerful and innovative features, allowing it to operate efficiently and in a sustainable way. In this way, it contributes to a safer and more pleasant working environment, and to the profitability of your business.

Lower fuel with high productivity

Winning tenders and meeting production targets are highly competitive processes for you to develop your business. The choice of construction machinery is of paramount importance and your success relies on the productivity and efficiency of your equipment.

The latest advanced hydraulic and electronic technologies are central to our goal of delivering a significant saving on fuel costs with the new low-emission engine. We are delighted that HIOS III hydraulics allow you to achieve 7% less fuel consumption in PWR mode – than the previous ZAXIS P-mode – while maintaining a high level of productivity at the same time*.

Furthermore, a reduction of 19% in fuel consumption is also possible in ECO mode*. This still delivers a relatively high level of productivity using the same amount of fuel.

A wider range of applications

More compact than conventional models, the ZAXIS 135US is suitable for working on a wide variety of job sites, especially where space is limited, namely on urban and road construction projects, and in forestry and demolition. It delivers increased operating efficiency in confined areas thanks to minimal protrusions at both the front and rear of the machine. A truck can be positioned closer to the tracks, for example, which boosts loading efficiency.

Higher level of performance

The success of your business is influenced by the productivity and efficiency of your equipment. Ultimately, your investment in Hitachi construction machinery can help you to meet production targets and compete successfully to win tenders within your market.

The hydraulic boosting system and other hydraulic systems enable the arm roll-in speed to increase when the load is relatively low. Our tried-and-tested power-boost feature has also increased by 5% to deliver an enhanced level of excavating performance and lifting power.

The versatility of the ZAXIS 135US may be evidenced by the attachment support system, with 11 modes that can be registered on the monitor for the easy fitment of different attachments.
