The Hitachi ZX0225USR-6 digger comes with an Isuzu EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV engine. Therefore the excavator delivers optimal fuel efficiency and reliable performance. Fuel pressure, timing, and volume are precisely regulated by electronic control for efficient combustion with Isuzu’s common-rail fuel injection system.

In addition, these 25t excavators are fitted with a state-of-the-art after-treatment device that results in fewer on-site emissions. To further support efficiency, it comes with two work modes, Economy (ECO) which delivers an 8% decrease in fuel use versus its predecessor, and a 6% saving in Power mode (PWR).

The auto-idle function reduces engine speed when the hydraulics aren’t in use. Paired with auto-shutdown, this becomes a highly fuel-efficient excavator.


This 25t digger boasts a TRIAS II system which is designed to decrease hydraulic loss. In fact, it does this by reducing the amount of hydraulic oil returned to the tank by the cooperative control of the pump and valve. The impact of which is to lower fuel consumption by 8% in ECO mode with the same productivity.

In addition, the tried‑and‑tested power‑boost feature has 10% more capacity than the Zaxis‑3 model. This increases the capacity of the ZX225USR‑6 to deliver an enhanced level of performance and lifting power.

For greater flexibility, this 25t excavator comes with rotary tilt and tilt modes. To that end, these and nine other modes can be registered on the monitor for the easy fitment of attachments to increase versatility.

To add to this, it is also equipped with two extra spools in the control valve. This further increases versatility by making it easier to install attachments that require multiple, large volumes of oil and on two‑piece boom models.

Operator comfort

The cabs on the ZX225URS-6 are specifically designed with all-day comfort in mind. They come equipped with a fully adjustable high-back seat and ergonomic controls, all set within a spacious cab. In addition, they feature silicone-filled cab mounts which minimise noise and vibration, along with a wide cab entryway and generous legroom.

With excellent visibility, a high-spec rollover protective structure (ROPS compliant), a centre pillar reinforced structure (CRES V) cab, and a 270-degrees camera, it really is one of the safest excavators available.  Alongside this, the cab is pressurised, and specifically designed to protect the operator from dust ingress and other potential risks on site.

A large seven‑inch multi‑function LCD monitor provides a wide range of useful technical information and allows operators to check the machine’s status and settings at a glance. Secondly, it boasts multi‑lingual support in up to 32 languages.

To further enhance the working environment for the operative the cab boasts an advanced music system, compatible with many Bluetooth devices.
