Reduced/Zero Tail Swing Excavators: Hitachi

April 2010 Vol. 65 No. 4

Recently upgraded to the Dash-3 series, the Hitachi Zaxis 35U-3 meets EPA Interim Tier-4 emissions requirements.

The cover is steel, not plastic. The reinforced D-shaped frame is like those found on larger models of the Zaxis family. The durable box-section frame, enlarged counterweight, and weighted undercarriage lower the center of gravity and increase stability. Lubricant-impregnated HN bushings are used for greater reliability and increased service intervals. Rubber crawlers feature a steel-core structure to protect shoe edges. A long arm/counterweight option extends digging depth and reach. The ZX35U-3 is available in both cab and canopy versions. A quick-coupler and hydraulic-attachment package comes standard. 800.675.8459, www.hitachiconstruction.com
