Hamilton Plant Hire Expand Their Fleet of Hitachi Excavators

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

In time for their 125th anniversary this year, Hamilton Plant Hire have continued a successful programme of expansion with a large order of excavators from Hitachi Construction Machinery (UK) Limited.

The order included four ZX135’s, four ZX85’s and six ZX22’s. As short tail swing units, all three models of excavators are ideally suited to achieve high levels of performance even on job sites with confined working spaces. Hamilton Plant Hire have had an increasing number of clients performing motorway and rail line work, making the capacity to maintain working efficiency on these more difficult job sites essential. All models also provide optimum fuel efficiency, taking advantage of the latest technology such as the new TRIAS hydraulic system. Through TRIAS hydraulics, fuel consumption is reduced by 17% without any drop in productivity.

Hamilton Plant Hire runs an extensive fleet of construction equipment, including tracked and wheeled excavators, tipper lorries, backhoe loaders, site dumpers, rollers and attachments. Building on a working relationship of over ten years, the most recent order brings Hamilton Plant Hire’s total Hitachi fleet to over eighty excavators, which represents more than half of their tracked and wheeled excavator fleet. Speaking about the past decade of business with Hitachi Construction Machinery (UK), Hamilton Plant Hire said, “we wanted to build a fleet of standardised excavators that all shared the same high-quality functionality and a strong reputation for reliability. Our clients frequently consider Hitachi vehicles to be the best available and they allow us to provide the best possible service.”

Hitachi Construction Machinery (UK) excavators also provide the benefit of being user-friendly. Fully adjustable air-suspension seats along with clear visibility and a user-friendly interface, that includes a multi-function LCD screen, ensure a comfortable operating cab. Whether it’s one of Hamilton Plant Hire’s own expert operators or a client using their self-drive hiring option, Hitachi excavators are designed to ensure a comfortable and productive operator.
