Hitachi Zaxis Dash 5 Excavators
April 5, 2012

Hitachi’s Zaxis-5 Series medium-sized excavators are  useful on urban job sites — not only because of their size but for their cleaner and more powerful operation as well. The powerful new-generation Isuzu EPA IT4/Stage IIIB-compliant engines deliver higher productivity with continued great fuel efficiency. A muffler filter helps reduce emissions by capturing air pollutants. And auto shutdown enhances fuel consumption, and reduces noise, exhaust emissions, and carbon dioxide. The new ZX160LC-5 replaces the ZX160LC-3, and the ZX210-5 and ZX210LC-5 replace the ZX200LC-3 — all introduced in 2007. The ZX210LC-5’s undercarriage is .29 meters (12 inches) longer than the  210 and supports a greater lifting capacity. The Isuzu AI-4JJ1 engine used in the ZX160LC-5 generates 90 kW (121 hp); the ZX210-5 and 210LC-5’s Isuzu 4HK1 engine generates 119 kW (159 hp). The powerful Isuzu diesel engines employ a cooled exhaust gas-recirculation (EGR) platform paired with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) to meet EPA IT4/EU Stage IIIB emissions regulations.
