Flexibility inspires investment in Hitachi
By Steve Ducker19 April 2018
Swiss construction company Savioni Attilio has invested in a Hitachi ZX145W-6 wheeled excavator to help it meet customer needs in a demanding local market. The firm bought the product from authorised dealer Probst Maveg with a full-service agreement and extended warranty programme covering three years or 4,000 hours.
Savioni’s fleet of Hitachi Zaxis machines currently numbers 14, and also comprises ZX17U-2, ZX19U-5, ZX22U-2, ZX35U-2, ZX50U-2, ZX52U-3 and ZX85US-5 mini and compact excavators; ZX240N-3 and ZX250LCN-3 medium crawler excavators and ZX140W-3, ZX145W-3 and ZX160W wheeled excavators.
The latest investment was to meet a requirement for a short-tail swing machine, similar to its versatile ZX145W-3.
“We are very happy with its predecessor, so the deal to buy this new machine was completed in about 10 minutes,” said director Fabio Savioni .
“We have to react quickly to our customers’ demands and often have to be ready to work within 24 hours. The ZX145W-6 is fast, smooth and precise, with excellent visibility and space for our operators. In addition, they really like the Hitachi machines, due to the precision of the hydraulic system and the comfort of the cab.
“We have a very strong relationship with Probst Maveg, especially with the Osogna branch, who are easy to reach. The dealer should be very proud of its team and there’s never been any discussion about where we should buy our next piece of construction machinery. The whole package – the product and the service – is the most important aspect of our ownership of Hitachi construction machinery.”
