Exceptional efficiency

We wanted the ZX33U-5 to have a big impact on your earthmoving, utility and general construction projects, but a smaller impact on the environment. So we designed it with several eco-friendly features.

Take the advanced energy saving system, for example, which combines the ECO mode, auto idle and electric governor features to significantly reduce fuel consumption. This also reduces noise levels and emissions. In addition, a new stack muffler fitted to the rear of the cab results in a quiet operation, which is becoming increasingly important for urban and environmental projects.

Highly productive

If you feel happy and relaxed while you work, then you’re going to be more productive. So we developed the ZX33U-5 with a number of improvements to the cab, including a larger door and front window, and user-friendly controls on the LCD monitor.

The maintenance features of the mini excavator have been designed to save you time as well as money. Routine checks and cleaning are quick and easy, thanks to the accessible covers and conveniently arranged inspection points.
