Hitachi Construction Machinery Corporation - ZX50U-5 Compact Excavators

The ZX50U-5 is small and compact and gives you huge performance on all kinds of jobs. We’ve reduced the size and footprint without sacrificing the Hitachi qualities you’ve come to expect – efficiency, reliability and durability.

By talking and listening to owners like you, we’ve taken the ZX50U-5 to a whole new level by adding real-world practical improvements. You get a more spacious cab with wider, easier entry and better visibility; a fuel-efficient and reliable engine that meets emission standard;, and maintenance that’s easier than ever thanks to enhancements such as improved access to coolers.
