ZAXIS-3 Series hydraulic excavators feature a range of improved functions. Operating performance has been upgraded for greater productivity. A stronger structure bolsters durability and reliability. The design conveys strength and credibility, both vital for construction machinery. It uses an L-shaped pillar, a key element in a sturdy cab structure that protects the operator in the event of roll-over. A color multi-display monitor shows images from the rear-view camera and also provides a simple interface with numerous information functions, including maintenance features. An analog meter display offers more intuitive visual recognition.
