A Hitachi ZX300LC-6 medium excavator is helping a Romanian supplier of high-quality aggregates to dredge materials for use in concrete production from the Argeş River, 30km west of the capital, Bucharest.

The Zaxis-6 machine was delivered recently by Hitachi’s authorized local dealer, Utirom Invest Srl (Utirom), and joins another Hitachi excavator (a ZX250LC-3) at the busy 150-hectare site.

Founded in 1991, NBG Srl (NBG) – a member of the NBG Group – primarily worked in the construction industry, but has since expanded into roadworks, utilities and now aggregates.

The new Hitachi ZX300LC-6 medium excavator has been quickly put to work near the town of Bolintin-Vale, where NBG is gathering aggregates that will eventually be used in the construction industry by local businesses and concrete plants near Bucharest.

On site, the ZX300LC-6 dredges and stockpiles material from the riverbed, before loading the third-party trucks that will take away the aggregates.

We’ve selected the ZX300LC-6 because we needed a strong machine with a high ground clearance,” said NBG’s Machinery Manager, Razvan Vişan. “It also had to be capable of increasing productivity.

According to him, the excavator is ideal for the type of work the company is doing, and more than capable of handling the materials.
