Land & Water expands fleet with the first super long reach excavator in UK

Land & Water Plant Hire has made the commitment, alongside the rest of the Land & Water Group, to become Carbon Net Zero by 2030. In order to do this, the firm is expanding its fleet to offer more specialist hybrid and fuel-efficient solutions that fulfil its client’s needs. The firm has recently taken delivery of the first Hitachi ZX130-7 super long reach excavator in the UK.

Land & Water Plant Hire is already home to the largest range of long reach excavators and the most comprehensive fleet of amphibious plant and road transportable marine equipment in the UK.

“The Hitachi ZX130-7 model is ideal for dredging rivers and lakes, as well as bank maintenance. It is exceptionally durable and stable, and does not compromise on user-friendly operation,” Land & Water said.

The environmental benefits of the Hitachi ZX130- 7 include:

  • New and improved fuel economy delivering up to 9% less fuel consumption.
  • Reduced life-cycle costs due to the Stage V-compliant engine, which does not require an SCR system (AdBlue additive). This eliminates the need for urea, filter replacements and associated maintenance.
  • A fully fitted ECO gauge that allows operators to control fuel efficiency.

    The construction and civil engineering industry makes up almost 40% of the world’s CO2 emissions. The Land & Water Group is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and becoming Carbon Net Zero by 2030, making it one of the industry’s key pioneers.
