Hitachi Delivers Customised Excavator to French Contractor Prowimat

Specialist quarrying company CBA has recently taken delivery of a customised ZX350LC-7 medium excavator, supplied by Hitachi Construction Machinery Europe’s approved dealer, Prowimat.

A subsidiary of Eurovia and the VINCI Group, CBA is responsible for the extraction of one million tonnes of aggregates per year. The new Zaxis-7 machine will be based in Hautes-Alpes, in the village of Montmaur.

A modern excavator, fit for purpose

CBA’s newest fleet addition is intended to replace an older ZX350LCN-5 to assist with loading dump trucks and breaking rocks with a hydraulic rock breaker attachment. This demanding work requires the most durable of machines, hence the company’s decision to invest in a Zaxis-7 model.

As per the customer’s request, Prowimat’s talented team has ensured the medium excavator is quarry ready. To further enhance durability, safety and operator comfort, it has been equipped with: bucket cylinder protection; a travel alarm; auto lubrication system; cab air compressor; fire extinguisher; 3 track guards; and 600mm double grouser shoes.

Additionally, the cab’s front and top guards have been specially reinforced. The machine sale also included an extended warranty and maintenance contract.

So far, the team at CBA is extremely pleased with its purchase, the customisation provided by Prowimat, and the performance of the -7 model.
