First for fuel efficiency
In recent years, the ZW220-6 has been handling around 2,000 tonnes of ballast for asphalt production per day. “When you compare the fuel consumption of the ZW220-6 to other wheel loaders, Hitachi really stands out,” says Miljötekniska Konsult’s owner Christer Westberg. “Overall, we have been highly satisfied with the total costs and reliability of the machine, as well as the excellent service we receive at Delvator’s workshop at Berggrens Maskinservice.”
Miljötekniska Konsult works across a wide range of sectors, but its main activities are asphalt and bentonite production. To create asphalt, it uses crushed rock as the raw material, alongside recycled and crushed asphalt granules excavated from old surfaces. The company’s business concept is based on high efficiency and flexibility, using its mobile asphalt plants.
“It only takes a few hours to mobilise our equipment before we are ready for production,” explains Christer. “We pride ourselves on speed, and we are often an attractive alternative to traditional asphalt plants. However, for this process to work effectively, we rely on an efficient and reliable machine fleet. This is where our Hitachi wheel loaders play an essential role.”
