The total package
Wiggo Rønningen has retained a strong loyalty and passion for Hitachi construction machinery since 1985. In 2003, he bought a ZX210 medium excavator – his first Zaxis model from authorised Norwegian dealer Nasta.
In addition to the older machines at the company’s gabbro rock quarry, such as a ZW220 wheel loader, Wiggo Rønningen Maskin owns a Hitachi ZX25 mini, and ZX160LC-5, ZX210LC-3, ZX210LC-5, ZX210LC-6, ZX280LC-3 and ZX300LC-6 medium excavators. The ZX160LC-5, ZX210LC-6 and ZX300LC-6 are covered by the extended warranty and service contracts provided by Nasta.
“My favourite machine was the ZX210LC-6, because of its versatility,” says Wiggo. “However, it’s now the ZX300LC-6, due to its production capacity. I’ve always tried to be a strong ambassador for Hitachi. It’s all about trust. I always buy high-quality machines, but this has to be balanced against the after-sales service we receive – it’s all about the total package.”
