Hitachi offers speed and stability on forestry project

January 13, 2020

French contractor Schmitt TP has invested in a Hitachi ZX135USL-6 forestry machine for environmental activities carried out by its subsidiary, Mivois Environnement.

One of its recent projects involved felling trees adjacent to a busy dual carriageway in preparation for a new intersection on the outskirts of the city of Rennes.

After the trees were cut down by the ZX135USL-6, they were grinded down into woodchips. These were then converted into heat or electricity.

ZX135USL-6 – key specifications:

  • Engine rated power (kW): 86 (ISO14396)
  • Operating weight (kg): 13,900-16,000
  • Backhoe bucket (ISO heaped): 0.19-0.66m3

Maximum operator visibility 

The ZX135USL-6 special application model is factory modified by Hitachi to meet the challenges of forestry applications, such as felling, milling and grinding.

“What I like most about the ZX135USL-6 is the stability and speed,” says operator Christophe Polisse. “For my work, I need to be able to see everything. I have the camera, and excellent visibility, it’s great.”
