The ZX50U-2 will prove itself over and over on your job sites as a productive money-maker. These new models provide improved productivity with reduced cycle times and a long arm option; better operator comfort with updated controls and cab; and lower operating costs with the introduction of auto-throttle and longer oil change intervals.
This machine can be equipped with an optional, hydraulic, adjustable-angle backfill blade that features 25 degrees of adjustment to both the left and right for more efficient trench backfilling. Blade angle changes easily with buttons on top of the blade control lever.
Awesome Boom and Stick Design
The boom cylinder and arm cylinder are cushioned at stroke ends to absorb shocks.
No Tail Swing
State-of-the-art design allows the Hitachi ZX50U-2 to work in confined areas, meaning they are easily positioned to work closer to buildings, obstructions, even in a single lane of traffic.
