Hitachi Genuine undercarriages offer exceptional durability and reliability

When purchasing parts for Zaxis excavators, a Belgian contractor has found that it pays to buy from its local authorised Hitachi dealer Luyckx – especially for critical components such as the undercarriage.

Optimum machinery condition

It’s vital for Hitachi owners to keep their machines working in optimum condition. By using Hitachi Genuine undercarriages, owners will ensure that their excavator continues to work safely and efficiently for a long period of time, with low running costs and high levels of productivity.

Like all Hitachi construction equipment, the undercarriages are manufactured using high-quality materials to guarantee extreme durability and reliable performance. They are developed using decades of engineering expertise and tested under the toughest job site conditions.

If the undercarriage of an older Zaxis model needs to be replaced, there is also a choice of two high-quality and cost-effective options. Hitachi 2Genuine and Hitachi Select Parts may cost less, but are tested to the same high standards as Hitachi Genuine Parts.

“The benefits of fitting Hitachi’s undercarriages are less downtime and excellent value for money. They are also a perfect fit as they are made only for Hitachi models and the quality ensures that they are long-lasting and hard-wearing.”

Reliability is the key

The importance of undercarriage reliability is emphasised by Vermetten Wegenbouw NV, one of Luyckx’s long-standing customers. Vermetten Wegenbouw is proud to have worked with Luyckx for more than a quarter of a century and has a broad range of Hitachi construction equipment at its disposal.

“It’s vital that our machines keep working to meet our customers’ deadlines, and so reliability is the key,” explains Managing Director Ron Vermetten. “When the time came to replace an undercarriage on one of our machines due to wear and tear, it was important to replace it with a reputable brand at a good price/quality ratio.

“We had a negative experience in the past when we bought another brand of undercarriage. So, in the last few years it’s only been Hitachi parts due to their reliability, durability and availability.”
