Key features

Inside and out, the new ZAXIS medium excavators lead the way

From the comfort of the cab

After a long shift on a road construction site or in the quarry, you need to feel ready to enjoy the rest of your day. Hitachi has taken the lead in operator comfort with the new ZAXIS 290, so that you can do just that.

The fully adjustable air-suspension seat features a new sliding mechanism with the capacity to be moved back further than ever before. The space underneath the monitor has also been expanded to allow for more leg room.

All-round visibility

Busy construction sites demand your full attention to avoid unnecessary damage or health and safety issues. The enhanced visibility – especially down the right-hand side of the new ZAXIS – will also save you time (and money), thanks to the latest innovations from Hitachi.

The repositioning of the monitor and door enhances your view, as well as making access to and from the cab much easier. The latest rear-view camera offers a closer view of the counterweight to minimise the blind spot.

User-friendly functionality

Hitachi has invested heavily in the advanced technology inherent within the new ZAXIS. The power remains firmly at your fingertips thanks to the functionality of the colour monitor and ergonomic controls.

The new multi-function LCD monitor has a large seven-inch screen that is easy to view. It provides a wide range of useful technical information, including a clear indication of the machine’s status and settings with multi-lingual support in up to 32 languages. The monitor and ergonomically designed switches have been grouped together within easy reach of your right hand. The proportional switch in the new, optional, auxiliary function lever allows easy control of the front attachment.

Enjoy your work

Time flies when you’re having fun, but we also realise that a happy operator is also a more productive one. That’s why we have renewed our focus on providing a relaxed and enjoyable working environment within the cab.

The controls for the AM/FM stereo radio are now fully adjustable from the colour monitor. An auxiliary socket has also been added to the sound system, so that you can work efficiently and smoothly to your favourite music via devices such as MP3 players.
