Synergy Hire acquires first Hitachi Zaxis-6 mini excavators in the UK

November 25, 2019

Synergy Hire Limited has taken delivery of the first Zaxis-6 mini excavators in the UK. The Letchworth-based company – a subsidiary of Hitachi Construction Machinery Co., Ltd. – is also the first to offer Stage V-compliant mini excavators to the growing UK rental market.

Synergy Hire’s large fleet of Hitachi construction machinery includes the ZX26U-6, ZX48U-6 and ZX85US-6 mini and compact excavators, as well as a range of medium excavators from the ZX130-6 to ZX210LC-6.

The Zaxis-6 mini and compact excavators were unveiled by Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV at Bauma in April 2019. They are fitted with Stage V-compliant engines, offering high levels of productivity, greater fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.

Growing rental market

The UK rental market is estimated to be worth more than £3billion and is forecast to continue growing until 2022. This is particularly true in the south of England, where demand for machinery in the new housing development sector is increasing.

“The UK construction machinery rental market is proven,” says Synergy Hire Director John Fitzpatrick, who runs the company with his brother, Anthony. “We offer the latest machinery, which is well maintained, and contractors have a fixed cost per week, with no machines lying idle.”

Synergy Hire selected Hitachi construction machinery due to its reliability and excellent reputation. “Hitachi has built up a high level of trust in the UK over the past 30 years,” adds John. “It’s also the only manufacturer that currently has Stage V-compliant mini excavators in the UK.”

Unrivalled service

Synergy Hire was established in January 2019 with 10 employees, many of whom have a wealth of experience in the construction machinery hire industry.

“We don’t have any variations in our fleet, as we’re focusing solely on Hitachi mini and medium excavators in order to offer an unrivalled level of service,” says Anthony Fitzpatrick.

“For example, our engineers are trained by Hitachi Construction Machinery (UK) Ltd, they carry only Hitachi Genuine Parts, and have specialist knowledge of our machines.”
