A perfect Fit for Stockyards

A Molenaar, a road construction, drainage, sewage and groundworks contractor, has bought an ideal machine for its new material-handling site in the form of the Hitachi ZW180-5. It has already made a significant impact loading a steady stream of trucks and trailers at sister company Molenaar Zand en Grond BV’s stockyard at Bergambacht, east of Rotterdam.

The Hitachi ZW180-5 has already made a significant impact loading a steady stream of trucks and trailers at sister company Molenaar Zand en Grond BV’s stockyard.

The company’s latest acquisition will help to supply its own road projects (50% of the output), and meet the needs of other contractors and private customers in the region. The site is located beside the Lek river and the incoming materials are delivered by boat, with all of the outgoing sand and soil loaded on to trucks. The new wheel loader was delivered in November 2014 by HCME Domestic, the domestic dealer of Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV.

The ZW180-5 is the first medium wheel loader in the fleet – and the first example of this model working in The Netherlands – as this is the only application that has required a product of this category and size.
