Hitachi provides perfection for Millot TP’s operators

Millot TP has expanded its fleet of construction machinery with the purchase of two new Hitachi medium excavators and a wheel loader from Teramat, the local dealer for the Rhône-Alpes and Burgundy-Franche-Comté regions of France. The demolition and earthmoving company has recently invested in a ZX300LCN-6 (delivered in October 2016), ZW180-5 (January 2017) and ZX250LC-6 (March 2017) in response to the increase in demand around Lyon.

One of the first projects for the ZX300LCN-6 was on a site for the demolition of a former shopping centre on Rue Charles Porcher in the city’s trendy Saint Rambert district. It was being used for the large-scale excavation of the demolished materials, as well as the groundworks and foundations for the new housing development scheduled for completion in 2018.

Excellent machine

Hitachi_ZX300LCN-6_Photo04_loMillot TP involves its demolition excavator operators in the early stages of the purchase process to ensure that they have complete faith in their equipment. The ZX300LCN-6 has been allocated to operator Bruno Lourenço, who has worked for the company for four years. This is his third Hitachi machine after previous experience with a ZX210LC-3 and ZX280LC-3.

“I really like the ZX300LCN-6, because it is more powerful than the ZX280LC-3,” he explains. “Overall, it’s an excellent machine: smooth and fast, and the loading cycle is very good. For example, there is no problem in working with around ten trucks per day on this site. The most impressive feature is the way in which I am able to work with this new machine, especially with the precision offered by the hydraulic system. The cab is also perfect: the visibility is excellent and the whole package is very comfortable.”

Peace of mind

Millot TP has had a long history with Hitachi construction machinery, having purchased two UH43 medium excavators more than 15 years ago. The company’s CEO, Daniel Pijot, says, “We continue to buy Hitachi machines because we know the brand so well and have been very happy with our equipment from the beginning. We have purchased other brands in the past, but have always come back to Hitachi as they compare favourably to the competition in terms of ease of maintenance, engine power and fuel consumption.

“The customer service from our Hitachi dealer is also excellent. Teramat is quick to respond to our needs and we always find a solution. In addition, we have developed close working relationships with their commercial and technical directors. For peace of mind, we also opt for a HELP (Hitachi Extended Life Program) extended warranty and maintenance contract to be supplied with our new Hitachi machines.”
