The Hitachi Zaxis 85 – US5 (Fixed Boom) delivers an excellent level of performance on a vast range of tasks and projects.

Over the years, we’ve used many different brands of excavator but have found this Hitachi 8-tonne machine to be a lot more versatile, user-friendly and fuel-efficient than its competitors.

One of its greatest attributes is its short-tail swing radius, which makes it perfect for working in confined spaces and on a variety of job sites, namely urban and river restoration sites, as well as for forestry and demolition applications. Due to the nature of Aquamaintains business, we have also chosen to utilise bio-oil making it more suitable for working in and around water.
