ZAXIS-5: Enhanced power and speed


The powerful ZAXIS 160 has been designed to deliver an outstanding level of performance, but with lower fuel consumption than its predecessor. Its enhanced hydraulics ensure a smooth, fast and precise operation on any earth-moving or construction site, helping you to increase production and meet targets successfully. Reduced fuel consumption will have a direct impact on your running costs and overall profitability, allowing you to make a quick return on your initial investment.

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 5% 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 17% in fuel consumption is also possible
in ECO mode*. This still delivers a relatively high level of productivity
using the same amount of fuel.

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 10% to deliver an enhanced level of excavating performance and lifting power.

The versatility of the ZAXIS 160 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.
