The best attraction
Safety and robustness were also important requirements, says Carlo: “The machines have to operate continuously every day for 8-10 hours. And they must comply with the stringent conditions set by TÜV. It was also important for us to have the excavators painted in orange and green – to combine the colours of Hitachi and BRIO.”
“I noticed the technological progress within the excavators. The Hitachi models replaced another brand of machines, which had been in use for 18 years. The ZX17U-5 is easy to operate, the controls are more responsive, and technically they are more refined.
“My overall impression of Hitachi machines is that they are reliable and highly robust. They have exceeded all my expectations, particularly in terms of quality and ease of maintenance.”
Visitors to Spieleland have been positive in their reaction to the new Hitachi machines. Six-year-old Merlin Brauchle tried the ZX17U-5 with his mother, and said: “I think it’s super that I’m allowed to experience how a construction site really is.”
And 13-year-old Marvin Gasser commented: “I liked digging with the Hitachi excavator because it was so easy to handle. I think it’s the best attraction here.”
