Hitachi Construction Machinery AmericasThe ZAXIS-7 compact excavator series from Hitachi Construction Machinery Americas, Newnan, Ga., has significantly-enlarged cab space versus the previous generation, the company says. The series features more head clearance when opening the front window and a low cabin floor height allows for improved access. An ultra-short-tail swing radius on the ZX75US-7 allows access to confined spaces while an ultra-short-tail swing radius with swing boom on model ZX85USB-7 productively digs next to walls and guard rails. A standard auto idle system automatically reduces the engine to idling speed when all control levers are left in neutral for more than 4 seconds.
