Hitachi Medium Excavator

Hitachi ZX250-5B Series


ZAXIS-5: Enhanced power and speed


The new range of Hitachi medium excavators has been designed to exceed even previous levels of performance. We have assessed every component to ensure that you can get the most from your machine on any earth-moving project or construction site. Like all the new models, the ZAXIS 250 benefits from enhanced power, torque and speed, as well as reduced running costs. So you can feel confident that your decision to buy Hitachi will set you apart from the competition.

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 9% 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 18% 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


A smooth, fast and precise machine is every operator’s dream – and that’s exactly what the ZAXIS 250 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 and lifting power.

The versatility of the ZAXIS 250 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.

In addition, the swing torque for the ZAXIS 250 has increased by 9%*. The enhanced swing performance means that it is now easier to dig next to side walls and operate on slopes. Larger digging force allows efficient extraction of hard or compacted material.
