Hitachi loader excels

A German recycling company has combined a Hitachi ZW150-6 wheel loader with Hitachi ground engaging tools on a demolition project in Erlangen. MMRHP Metzner Recycling GmbH (Metzner Recycling) took receipt of the machine in May 2019 from authorised local dealer Kiesel, and the wheel loader has been quickly put to use on a wide range of tasks across the 38,000m² site. Once the five existing buildings on site have been demolished, construction will begin on a new Siemens campus.

The ZW150-6 has proved suitable for various activities, including transporting and loading materials into a crusher, loading lorries and distributing materials. The Hitachi floor type bucket features a rounded bottom, which owner Michael Metzner says makes it easier to fill with material and results in less wheel spin, to the benefit of fuel efficiency and tyre wear.
