Hitachi Construction Machinery Netherlands (HCMNL) has recently delivered a new Hitachi ZW220-7 wheel loader to help Dutch recycling company Van Dijk Containers process residual carpet products used in a variety of industries.
Kings of carpet city
Based in Genemuiden in the northern Netherlands (also known as ‘carpet city’ thanks to the large number of carpet manufacturers located there), Van Dijk Containers has grown from a family business into the largest player in the Western European carpet recycling market.
Work at its plant consists mainly of processing residual carpet materials into raw materials for cement, automotive insulation, and even garden furniture, alongside other waste processing and transport activities.
The safest machine for soft materials
The new ZW220-7 wheel loader is an incredibly versatile mid-sized wheel loader, offering a combination of exceptional manoeuvrability and large load capacity that is ideal for Van Dijk Containers’ operations.
Thanks to advanced technology such as the Aerial Angle™ camera system offering 270-degree bird’s-eye view of the cab, and innovative design decisions that give operators more control over their work, the new ZW-7 range of machines are the safest wheel loaders on the market.
A completely redesigned cab gives operators some of the lowest noise and vibration levels on the market. Ergonomically designed controls, a fully adjustable armrest and a high-res LCD screen provide superior comfort for safer and more productive operations.
