Our smallest excavator, but still powerful, the Hitachi Zaxis ZX10-5 has a large capacity three-cylinder engine and two travel speeds.Designed to fit in the most confined spaces, the retractable undercarriage and blade gives the machine an adjustable width to a minimum of 780mm and maximum of 1,000mm. The rear-end swing radius of 825mm makes it ideal for working next to walls on residential construction projects, or in corners on busy urban job sites.

Designed with you in mind...

  • When moving the control lever to neutral, the auto idle automatically reduces engine speed to idling level four seconds later, reducing fuel consumption. It also brings the additional benefits of lower noise levels and emissions.
  • Folding roll bar enables easy transportation between job sites.
  • High capacity fuel tank increases time between refueling.
  • Rugged construction and high durability throughout.
  • Single unit counter weighted main frame effectively protects the body from unexpected shocks.
  • HN Bushings are used at all pin joints at the front of the machine and the blade. The lubrication intervals have been extended to 500 hours, contributing to reduced scraping and grinding of the pins and bushes.
  • A folding retractable seat allows immediate machine use after wet weather without the need for cleaning.
  • Full manufacturers guarantee.
  • Excellent residual values, with a worldwide after sales network.
  • Short rear-end swing radius provides additional flexibility to manoeuvre and operate within tight, confined spaces. Easy trench excavation work is possible near walls, foundations and other obstacles – improving productivity in urban areas.
  • Hydraulic pilot control levers provide smooth control of the machine and easy operation.
  • Neutral engine start system disables engine starting unless the lever is in lock position.
  • Powerful, large capacity 3-cylinder engine, giving substantial power for tough excavating jobs.
  • Outside flange type low roller enhances riders comfort due to the increased horizontal stability.
  • Wide opening steel inspection covers offer easy access to service points, allowing for quick daily inspection, servicing, cleaning and refueling, with the radiator and oil coolers positioned side by side for convenience. An optional tilting device for the floor of the cab provides even greater access for service and maintenance procedures.
