You can find our seven- to 50-tonne medium excavators working on all kinds of job sites. The standard models are commonly used on earthmoving and general construction projects, while larger machines can be used for quarrying. You may also have passed our ultra-short tail swing excavators on busy road construction sites. Or stood well back from a factory-modified special application model carrying out demolition work. The fact Hitachi Zaxis excavators are so versatile is why they’re the most popular machines in the industry.
