Enhanced performance

Thanks to the short-tail swing radius of the ZX48U-6, it is the perfect fit for urban job sites where space is often limited. Fast, powerful and fuel-efficient, it will ensure high levels of productivity, and performs with lower levels of fuel consumption and fewer emissions than previous models.

Efficient productivity

The ZX48U-6 delivers high levels of productivity on the job site thanks to a powerful Stage V-compliant engine, quick cycle time and an efficient hydraulic system. The EGR and muffler filter reduce NOx and particulate matter, and a common rail system helps the engine to run optimally. This not only reduces emissions, but also contributes to greater fuel efficiency and reduced running costs.

Built to last

Durable features of the ZX48U-6 – such as strengthened front joints, improved swing post and boom cylinder guard – ensure a reliable performance, helping you to get the job done on time and on budget.

Lower fuel costs

The advanced energy-saving system combines ECO mode, auto idle and isochronous control features to significantly reduce fuel consumption. It also reduces noise levels and emissions.
