Bridging the gap between the ZX5OU-2 compact excavator and the ZX75US-3 and ZX85USB-3 mid-sized excavators, the Hitachi ZX60USB-3 is an ultra-short excavator with a swing boom and backfill blade. It is the perfect size for jobs along walls, guard rails, narrow roads, and tight work sites. The independent swing boom moves 80 degrees to the left and 60 degrees to the right; the boom offset is 33.5 inches to the right and 28 inches to the left. Thanks to the Yanmar 4TNV98 engine which is certified to EPA interim Tier-4 emission regulations, the ZX60USB-3 is durable, very productive, and extremely fuel efficient. The advanced engine technologies include an Exhaust Gas Recirculation system to reduce NOx emissions while maintaining high power; an electronic governor that adjusts fuel-injection volume and engine speed; and an isochronous control electronic governor that reduces fuel consumption and excess noise. The excavator’s overall noise level and fuel consumption are also reduced by a large 20-inch variable speed fan that is continuously adjusted by a linear clutch.
