Investing in Hitachi-approved attachments and machine control systems for your excavator brings you the peace of mind that in the unlikely event of a breakdown you are dealing with your trusted one point of contact in Product Support who will ensure that you are back up and running with minimum downtime.


We purchased our machines with the specification of tilt rotators, 3D machine technology, and height and slew restrictors. We bought these machines through HCMUK and the biggest benefit was that it is a one stop shop, which meant we have no down time with retrofitting the equipment and we could finance the machines through one provider, rather than splitting it up. Another benefit is we go to one place for any service or warranty issues, and we don’t get any downtime due to the reliability of these machines.

John Moriarty – Production Director at McDermotts

“It has been 100% to our advantage that we opted for HCT’s one-stop shop approach rather than using a third party. Jake and the HCMUK team have been so impressive, and the whole process – from specification to installation and training – has been outstanding. “Everyone has dedicated their time and effort to answer our questions, and ensure we are happy and understood all aspects of the operation. We’ve really appreciated this excellent service, which is a different league to anything we’ve experienced before! We are so pleased that we have had the same HCT systems retrofitted on to one of our older excavators.”

Gary Caddick - Operations Director at BCL Groundworks

"HCT is a one-stop shop for all our needs, and we benefit from the in-house knowledge and expertise".
