Hitachi delivers on every level for Dutch contractor

March 09, 2018

“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.”
