“I first invested in Hitachi because of the price and the service from my local dealer.” That’s the opinion of Arco de Visser, who is using a Hitachi ZX210LC-6 medium excavator on a challenging project in The Netherlands.
The machine is building a trench for a small canal at a campsite in the village of Renesse. The ZX210LC-6 was supplied by local Hitachi dealer Pladdet in March 2017.
Growing Hitachi fleet
Since he started his company 15 years ago, Arco has relied upon a growing fleet of Zaxis mini and medium excavators. The ZX210LC-6 represents his 13th Hitachi machine.
His first was a ZX50 mini excavator in 2009. Since then, he has remained loyal to Hitachi, and subsequently invested in other machines, such as a ZX65USB-5, ZX85USB-3, ZX180LC and a ZX19U-5.
ZX210LC-6 – key specifications:
- engine rated power: 128.4 kW
- operating weight: 21,600-23,700 kg
- bucket capacity ISO heaped: 0.51-1.20 m3.
The total package
“The relationship I have with Sales Manager Peter van Liere (at Pladdet) is extremely important,” says Arco. “We chose this model because it’s powerful, has low fuel consumption, a long lifespan and a high resale value. Overall, we think it’s a fantastic machine.”
Operator Ronnie Wattel agrees: “I love the work I do and Hitachi adds to my enjoyment. It has the total package: power, speed, a comfortable cab and it looks great on the outside too.”
