Double vision: Hitachi machines are a powerful pair

January 31, 2018

The Hitachi ZW75-6 compact wheel loader and ZX55U-5 mini excavator were made for each other… that’s the opinion of German landscaping company Susewind. Both machines were keeping busy on a project near the city of Freiburg, in which Susewind was building and maintaining a three-tiered garden.

According to owner Sven Susewind, Hitachi’s authorised local dealer Kiesel made a great suggestion with the two machines: “The service from Hitachi is outstanding, and I have known the Kiesel salesman personally for around 40 years. I can completely trust them to offer me a superior excavator or wheel loader.”

Smooth hydraulics

The ZX55U-5 is being used for a wide variety of tasks, such as general site preparation. Its operator Erwin Ufheil is a big fan of the machine: “The mini excavator is simply ideal for the type of work we’re doing. Personally, the number one feature of the Hitachi ZX55U-5 has to be the hydraulics, which are extremely smooth.”

ZX55U-5 – key specifications:

  • engine rated power: 28.3 kW

  • operating weight: 5,040-5,370 kg
  • digging depth: 3,530-3,830 mm.

Seeing clearly

Elsewhere, the ZW75-6 is being used to transport and clear away materials, and load trucks. “I particularly like the Hitachi ZW75-6, because of its manoeuvrability,” says operator Rainer Kühnle. “It offers excellent visibility and I can see every corner of the machine. Compared to other models, it is much smoother over rough ground.”

 ZW75-6 – key specifications:

      • engine rated power: 50 kW
      • operating weight: 5,050 kg
      • breakout force: 4,200 kN.

Perfect partners

The combination of the ZW75-6 and ZX55U-5 has been an exciting revelation for Sven: “The partnership between the two is fantastic, and I always aim to have them working together. The look and the design of the Hitachi machines is wonderful and owning them creates an excellent image for my company.”
