ZX30U-5
Big-time performance. Durability you can count on.

With the ZX30U-5 you get an excavator that starts when you do and doesn’t know the meaning of the word “quit.”

The reduced-tail-swing design on the powerful ZX30U-5 makes it perfect for work in congested or confined areas. A fuel-efficient Yanmar engine that meets EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV emission standards provides reliable and powerful performance. A spacious cab with wider, easier entry and better visibility won’t cramp your style. And maintenance is easy thanks to enhancements such as improved access to coolers. When you choose the ZX30U-5 you get the efficiency, reliability and durability Hitachi is known for.
