More productivity with greater savings.

The ZX250LC-5 excavator brings more efficiency, reliability, and durability to your jobsite. It features numerous customer-driven enhancements, such as a quiet-running, fuel-efficient Isuzu engine, and generous swing torque, dig force, and lift capacity. Plus, you get fast work cycles and a comfortable, more spacious cab with easy-to-operate controls.

The ZX250LC-5 comes standard equipped with five years of ZXLink™ Ultimate, giving you 24/7 online access to machine location, health, utilization, fuel consumption, and other valuable information – so you can better understand costs and jobsite performance.


  • The Isuzu engine (equivalent to EPA Tier 2/EU Stage II) is fuel-efficient and meets rigid emission standards. 
  • ZX250LC-5_ZX290LC-5_ZX350LC-5_ZX380LC-5_main_frameThick-plate single-sheet mainframe, box-section track frames and industry-exclusive double-seal swing bearing deliver rock-solid durability.
  • Oil-impregnated bushings increase durability and extend grease intervals to 500 hours for most of the boom and arm linkage points.
  • Reinforced D-channel side frames provide maximum cab and component impact protection.
  • Tungsten-carbide-coated surfaces protect the critical bucket-to-arm joint.
  • With large idlers, rollers, and strutted track links, the sealed and lubricated undercarriage is built for the long haul.
  • ZX250LC-5_ZX290LC-5_ZX350LC-5_ZX380LC-5_speed_cyclesGenerous flow, arm force, and swing torque help speed cycles and keep you on schedule.
  • Our HIOS III hydraulic system perfectly balances engine performance with hydraulic flow. Its hydraulic boost system and enhanced boom recirculation generate aggressive boom and arm speed – returning the arm to dig faster, so you can move more dirt in a day.
  • ZX250LC-5_ZX290LC-5_ZX350LC-5_LCD_MonitorMulti-language LCD monitor and rotary dial provide intuitive access to a wealth of info and functions. Just turn and tap to select work modes, monitor maintenance intervals, check diagnostic codes, set cab temperature, make simple attachment hydraulic-flow adjustments, plus more.
  • ZX470LC-5_670LC-5_870LC-5_Pilot_LeverErgonomically correct short-throw pilot levers provide smooth, precise fingertip control with less movement or effort. Push buttons in the right lever allow fingertip control of auxiliary hydraulic flow for operating attachments.
  • ZX130-5_ZX160LC-5_ZX180LC-5_ZX210_climate_controlAutomatic, high-velocity bi-level climate-control system with automotive-style adjustable louvers helps keep the glass clear, the cab comfortable, and the operator productive.
  • It’s not always about brute force. Unmatched metering and smooth multifunction operation provide plenty of finesse and precision, too.
  • Silicone-filled cab mounts isolate the operator from noise and vibration.
  • Operators will appreciate the wide entryway, fabric-covered seat and generous legroom.
  • Unsurpassed visibility, ergonomically placed low-effort joysticks, a highly efficient HVAC system, plus numerous other amenities provide everything needed to keep your operators comfortable and productive.
  • ZX250LC-6_ZX300LC-6_filtersVertical spin-on fuel- and engine-oil filters are positioned in the right rear compartment for simplified ground-level servicing.
  • ZX130-5_ZX160LC-5_ZX180LC-5_air_filterFresh-air cab filter is quickly serviced from outside the cab, so it’s more likely to get done.
  • ZX250LC-6_ZX300LC-6_lubeCentralized lube banks places zerks within easy reach to make greasing less messy and time-consuming.
  • ZX250LC-5_ZX290LC-5_ZX350LC-5_hinged_DoorsHinged service doors provide wide-open access to cooler cores for simplified debris clean-out.
  • Easy-to-navigate LCD monitor issues scheduled maintenance alerts. Should a problem arise, it provides diagnostic information to help decrease downtime.
  • The ZX250LC-5 is standard equipped with Hitachi’s ZXLink™ system, giving you the power to optimize your operation and maximize your profits. With the support of your dealer you can use your data to reduce idling time as well as maximize productivity and uptime. Without ever leaving your seat you’ll have access to fleet location, functions, hours, fuel consumption, alerts and other essential machine data. You can also view location and alert information in the field from your iOS or Android devices.
