A new Hitachi ZW220-6 wheeled loader is hard at work on the coast of Denmark
A new Hitachi
ZW220-6 wheeled loader has been delivered to Jysk Kloak Entreprise, a sewage and landscaping contractor in Tjæreborg on the coast of Denmark.
It is the latest addition to the company’s Hitachi fleet, which includes a ZX250LC-6 medium and three mini excavators , the ZX10U-2, ZX18-3 and ZX27-3. “We needed the most versatile model available for our requirements,” said company owner Jan Christensen.
Fitted with additional lights and a larger 4m³ bucket, the wheeled loader was supplied in February this year. Included was a service contract with a 5,000-hour/3-year protection plan for the engine.
One of the first jobs for the ZW220-6 was clearing excavated material on a construction for an extension to a small shopping mall.
Operator Henrik Svenningsen, who has been driving other makes of loaders, said the Hitachi loader was “powerful, smooth to operate and the cab is spacious”. The unit is “stable and well balanced” and there is excellent traction.
“When loading trucks on this site, it is precise and doesn’t spill any materials. It also feels safe, with excellent visibility thanks to the rear-view camera, and is easy to operate,” he said.
