Hitachi ZX75US-3/ZX85USB-3 Compact Excavators
April 18, 2008

The ZX75US-3 and ZX85USB-3 Hitachi excavators are two new compact ultra-shorts that are long on features. Plus they are the perfect size for all kinds of jobs including landscaping, light residential, urban renewal, and underground utilities. Not too big and not too small, these just-right-sized machines deliver all the power, smoothness, precision, and ease of operation owners and operators expect from the larger Hitachi excavators in an easy-to-maneuver package. And they reduce the potential for damage to the surrounding area or to the machine itself. Getting closer to the action also eliminates the need for a lot of hand work. Choose steel shoes or outfit the compacts with rubber pads or rubber crawler belts to be the landscaper’s best friend. The new shape of the backfill blade provides better crowding performance, additional machine stability, and is easier to see by the operator. The swing boom on the ZX85USB-3 adds yet another dimension of performance by enabling parallel digging to walls, guard rails, and foundations, making it ideal for excavation and utility work.
