WITH just weeks to go until the start of ScotPlant 2022, Hitachi Construction Machinery UK has significantly increased the size of its stand.

The manufacturer has relocated to the new outdoor entrance avenue – and snapped up over 200 additional square metres of space in the process.

Hitachi is making a long-awaited return to ScotPlant this year, showcasing some of the latest Zaxis-7 excavators and the most recent equipment and innovations from the Hitachi Connected Technology department.

The manufacturer’s new mixed-fleet management telematics system, CTFleet Link, will also be available for those wish to learn more about this new platform. Developed utilising both the Hitachi Global e Service API and a new API developed by HCMUK, this invention is described as enabling customers to access a live online portal to monitor not only the performance and location of their Hitachi equipment, but also that of other manufacturers in their fleet.

Joining Hitachi in the outdoor entrance avenue will be the likes of Rototilt, McCloskey, Sunbelt Rentals Survey, Levenseat, Concrete Services & Supplies, The Big Block Company, Scotia Survey, and Leeds Welding Company.
