Our Hitachi ZX55U-6, 5-tonne excavator, is comfortable, fast, and fuel-efficient, making it a highly productive asset to any job site. This powerful excavator also benefits from Hitachi’s trademark short tail swing radius, which is perfect for limited space environments. 

The ZX55U-6 is exceptionally user friendly, with straightforward, intuitive controls and an ergonomic layout. Operator comfort is the key to boosting productivity and was clearly in mind during the design process of this model. The fully enclosed cab has an excellent air-conditioning system with large doors and windows offering increased visibility.

Like our other Hitachi excavators, we have found this 5-tonne machine to be exceptionally robust and reliable, owing to its impressive build quality and thought out design. It’s a great all-rounder but excels when partnered with a grab or tree shear, making it ideal for medium to large scale site clearance projects.
