Hitachi Zaxis 50U-2 Compact Excavator
January 29, 2008

The Hitachi Zaxis 50U-2 is nimble, powerful, and designed to keep its tail close to its tracks rather than bashing into fences or walls. It has fast cycle times and plenty of drawbar pull to increase productivity. Automatic shifting between high and low travel speeds allows the machine to automatically shift into low when more power is needed.A long arm and heavy counterweight option provides an additional foot of dig depth and reach while maintaining excellent stability. The ZX50U-2 is an engineering marvel. Although small in size and footprint, it has the same distinctive big-boy qualities Hitachi users expect ” long life, smooth hydraulics, multifunction operations, steel covers, reinforced D-channel frame, lubricant-impregnated HN bushings, and a box-section frame.
