Introducing A New Addition To Our Fleet

1st May 2015

When you’re one of the leading demolition companies in the UK you need the very best machinery so we’re always investing in new and innovative pieces of equipment to help us improve our demolition and decommissioning service.


This includes the recent purchase of a brand new large excavator machine, the Hitachi ZX870, one of the latest eco models to join our growing fleet of machinery.

This durable and high-quality brand new ZAXIS is a fuel-thrifty excavator that can reduce fuel consumption by 4%, compared to other similar models, thanks to the HIOS IIIB hydraulic system and engine control system, thereby reducing CO2 emissions and running costs.

The ECO mode, a new economical mode, can further cut fuel consumption by 10% compared to the PWR mode, without sacrificing digging force by optimal matching of operations.

Hughes and Salvidge are big enthusiasts of Hitachi, from whom we have previously taken delivery of several other forms of machinery, finding their products enduring and the support they provide immensely reliable.

Demolition can take its toll on machinery but each new Hitachi model tends to be even better than their last and that’s exactly what we have encountered again when utilising the ZX870.
