ZAXIS-5: Enhanced power and speed

The fast and fuel-efficient new ZAXIS 225US is designed to achieve high levels of performance on a wide variety of job sites. The short-tail swing radius extends its suitability for earth-moving and construction work to confined spaces, particularly in urban areas, or for road construction, forestry and demolition. It manoeuvres smoothly and precisely, and will deliver increased productivity and reduced running costs - like all new ZAXIS models.


Lower fuel costs

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. This is where our new TRIAS hydraulic system comes into its own.

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 TRIAS hydraulics allow you to achieve 17% 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 25% 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 225US 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


A smooth, fast and precise machine is every operator’s dream – and that’s exactly what the ZAXIS 225US offers. Our latest innovations have been developed specifically for the new generation of Hitachi medium excavators.

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.

The versatility of the ZAXIS 225US 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. These two auxiliary spools are useful for attachments that require multiple, large volumes of oil flow.
