ZX17U-5 mini excavator

Hitachi ZX17U-5A

Despite being one of the smallest in the Hitachi line-up, the ZX17U-5 mini excavator is capable of producing high levels of productivity, whilst using low amounts of fuel due to its great hydraulic efficiency.

The machine is also designed to keep its tail close to its tracks, which allows operators to work in confined spaces such as digging a trench down the side of a house. The tracks can also be extended and retracted by up to 200mms to suit the requirements of the job.

Despite its compact structure, the canopy has been designed with a wider, easier entry, enhanced visibility, and a great sense of space, which makes for a more enjoyable operating experience.

Being lightweight and stable, the ZX17U-5 can also be easily towed behind most modern work utes, which makes transportation between job sites a breeze. Offering a complete line-up of Hitachi excavators and wheel loaders reinforces Hitachi’s reputation for durable products that are ideal for a wide range of applications.
