Hitachi's ZX60USB-5 will be available with a canopy option.

Hitachi’s largest compact excavator, the ZX60USB-5, will soon be available with a canopy option – a great alternative for those operators who like the enhanced visibility of a canopy as well as the open-air feeling.

With this offering, all of Hitachi’s compact excavators will have a canopy option available. This cost-effective alternative to the cab lets customers take advantage of lower ownership and operating costs.  Plus, the ZX60USB-5 is packed with features to maximize efficiency, reliability and durability on any job site.
