Construction and safety equipment specialist BCS Group has purchased six ZX135US-7 14-tonne and four ZX225US-7 25-tonne machines to add to its rapidly growing excavator hire fleet.
In line with the company’s commitment to adopting new technologies to maximise safety, each of the Hitachi machines will be fitted with human form recognition cameras and a digital ‘thumbs up’ system pioneered by Safety Shield Global.
Steve Day, head of hire at BCS, led the investment programme which he believes will help put the company’s equipment at the technological forefront of what is available to hire in the UK.
“We have a double priority at BCS Group: to ensure that we are making available to hirers the most up-to-date and well-equipped machines and to make sure that their spec also reflects the latest developments to ensure that sites and operators are kept as safe as possible,” he said.
“The latest fleet additions from Hitachi certainly meet those expectations. In addition to the human form recognition, the machines have been fitted with digital ‘thumbs up’, and height and slew restriction.
“Customers have welcomed the news of their arrival and we are confident that they will prove popular on site.”
