Westbourne Civil Engineering has received delivery of the UK’s first Hitachi Zaxis Dash-6 excavator. The innovative new Hitachi ZX250-6 was complemented by eleven further machines from the Hitachi hydraulic excavator range, including the ZX85US-5, ZX130-5, ZX135US-5 and ZX210-5.
The delivery marks the beginning of an exciting new era for growing civil engineering company Westbourne, who have plans to further expand their fleet of machines from thirty-four to fifty by the end of 2016. But their expansion plans don’t stop there, the family run business has recently moved into brand new, self-built, 5600 sq ft premises near Manchester. This will allow them to hire additional surveyors, engineers and apprentices to serve the growing demand in the housing market.
Commenting on the multi machine purchase, Managing Director Martin Colgan stated: “the legendary reliability and resale value of the Hitachi excavators, coupled with the excellent customer service provided by HCMUK made Hitachi an easy choice. These excavators are quite literally the best machines for groundwork and civil engineering in the current market”.
“I am also delighted with the addition of the latest model from Hitachi, the ZX250-6 is already proving to be very popular with our operators and the excellent fuel efficiency is good for the bottom line”.
Fuel efficiency is a key feature of the new dash-6 design; equipping the machine with a TRIAS II system has reduced the amount of hydraulic oil returned to the tank due to the cooperative control of the pump and valve. This results in a 19% fuel saving in ECO mode (10% in PWR mode), while maintaining the same levels of productivity.
