The new ZX50U-3 meets EPA Interim Tier-4 emissions requirements.
Features include long life, smooth hydraulics, multifunction operations,
steel cover, reinforced D-channel frame, lubricant-impregnated HN
bushings and a box-section frame. The counterweight is large while the
undercarriage is weighted to lower the center of gravity and increase
stability. The auto-idle feature reduces fuel consumption. The manual
quick-coupler makes fast work of bucket and attachment switchovers.
Boom-mounted auxiliary hydraulic lines and an auxiliary return-flow
selector valve accommodate both one- and two-way hydraulically driven
attachments. Operate auxiliary hydraulics with a switch positioned on
top of the right-hand pilot lever. An optional hydraulic,
adjustable-angle backfill blade features 25 degrees of adjustment to
both the left and right for more efficient trench backfilling. The blade
angle changes easily with buttons on top of the blade control lever. The
ZX50U-3 comes standard with a ROPS/FOPS canopy, adjustable seat, and
generously sized entryways. www.hitachiconstruction.com
