Hitachi plays its part in Dutch contractor’s success
Dutch contractor Arco de Visser, based in Zeeland, has been a Hitachi customer since 2005, having started his business in 2003. “I had operated machines from a young age and when I started working for myself, I requested offers from different brands. The quickest reply and the best offer were from the local Hitachi sub-dealer, Pladdet,” he says. Since then, Arco has purchased 15 Hitachi machines in total, ranging from one to 23 tonnes. “My favourite is the ZX210 because of its high capacity, manoeuvrability, and how easy it is to transport.” He has continued to buy Hitachi machines over the last 17 years due to the price, the excellent service he receives from Pladdet, and the strong relationship he has with salesman Peter van Liere. His fleet currently includes ten Hitachi models, including three mini excavators, two ZX85US-6s, a ZX145W-6 wheeled excavator and ZX210-6. The latest addition to the fleet was a ZX180-7 delivered in July 2022.
