Compact, but powerful, with a large capacity three-cylinder engine with two travel speeds, the Hitachi Zaxis ZX19U-5 delivers market leading performance and output.  A retractable undercarriage gives an adjustable width from 980mm for small spaces and for transportation between sites, to a maximum width of 1,280mm when greater stability is required.  Creating an ideal machine for confined or narrow spaces, and for utilities, foundation work, landscaping and indoor demolition or construction.  The three-post canopy design provides rollover protection for the operator, while the wide and adjustable sliding suspension seat and user-friendly controls ensure operator comfort.

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.
  • Data has shown that the cycle time is 9% quicker and the workload 10% greater than competitor machines.
  • The crawler track can be expanded or retracted from 980mm for working in small spaces or being loaded and widened to 1,280mm for greater stability.
  • Rugged construction and high durability throughout.
  • Single unit counter weighted main frame effectively protects the body from unexpected shocks.
  • Double clamp and screw type check valve for enhanced reliability.
  • 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.
  • Enlarged intake vents enhance cooling effectiveness, allowing longer periods of operation on tough job sites without overheating.
  • 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.
  • Canopy roll over protection system.
  • Hydraulic pilot control levers provide smooth control of the front, boom swing, travel and blade.
  • 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.
  • Swing parking brake activates with the lock lever to safely park the machine.
  • Outside flange type low roller enhances riders comfort due to the increased horizontal stability.
  • Wide and adjustable sliding suspension seat that is surrounded by user-friendly controls within easy reach.
  • Three-post canopy design provides enhanced visibility on site.
  • Expansive leg room.
  • Folding foot pedals and adjustable armrest.
  • Engine cover slides vertically for quick and easy maintenance in confined areas and narrow jobsites.
  • The radiator cover opens out wide using a one push mechanism revealing the radiator and oil cooler, which have been arranged side by side to achieve greater cooling efficiency and easy cleaning.
  • Large opening for greasing the track adjuster.
