Hitachi Zaxis 180LC-5
April 12, 2012

Hitachi’s  ZX180LC-5. is  designed to appeal to small local contractors, water and sewer contractors, and those who dig basements and pools.  The ZX180LC-5 is slightly bigger than the new 160LC-5, yet has a unique boom/arm configuration for greater lift capacity and a wider undercarriage for more stability. It is lighter and easier to transport than the next-sized up 210-5/210LC-5 excavators, yet can perform much of the same work while saving diesel-fuel dollars. The ZX180LC-5 can come equipped with either a 2.71-m (8-ft. 10-in.)  or 3.21-m (10-ft. 6-in.) arm; 3910-kg (8,620-lb.) counterweight; and 600-, 700-, or 800-mm (24-, 28-, or 32-in.) triple semi-grouser shoes. The powerful Isuzu AI-4JJ1 diesel engine generates 90 kW (121 hp).
