Hitachi backs up quality with Hitachi Premium Used
Hitachi Construction Machinery Europe – HCME - has launched Hitachi Premium Used as an intiative to promote its second-hand equipment.
Customers get “a used Hitachi model, guaranteeing a high-quality machine with an approved Hitachi warranty”, according to a statement from the HCME.
Hitachi Premium Used applies to Hitachi medium and large excavators with less than 5,000 hours or less than five years old, as well as mini excavators with less than 3,500 hours.
It also applies to all ZW-series wheel loaders above 93kw. They will be covered by Hitachi’s six-month/1,500-hour powertrain and hydraulics warranty.
“Every Hitachi Premium Used machine undergoes a rigorous inspection and refurbishment process,” noted the statement. “This is carried out by an authorised Hitachi dealer using only Hitachi genuine parts and lubricants, according to Hitachi specifications. Scheduled oil sampling is completed and maintenance records are available via Global e-Service, Hitachi’s remote machine monitoring website.”
The machines are painted if required “to provide an immaculate appearance and the undercarriage and tyres are guaranteed to have less than 50% wear”.
“Customers travelling to, or working in, different countries can benefit from the same Premium Used conditions and will be supported by the local authorised Hitachi dealer, irrespective of where they are on the continent,” said Tom van Wijlandt, manager service business support at HCME.
Hitachi Premium Used machines can be viewed on a new HCME website: https://used.hitachicm.eu and which offers a comparison feature to check the hours, specs and pricing of similar models.
