Zahlene Enterprises, a civil contractor and aggregate recycler based in Miami, recently took delivery of a new Hitachi ZX245USLC-6.
The reduced-tail-swing excavator is being used for drainage work on Miami’s Ronald Regan Turnpike.
“The ZX245 is an amazing machine. I now own four,” said Jordan Zahlene, vice president of Zahlene Enterprises. “We’ve been doing a lot of drainage work for the DOT and we’re working in really tight spots in medians where it would be impossible to work with anything else. The ZX245 really has the power required to drop those drainage structures and get the job done in the limited amount of space.”
The new ZX245USLC-6 is one of 16 Hitachi machines in Zahlene’s fleet.
“What led me to Hitachi was the fuel economy and the performance. You get a very good, quality machine at the right price.”
Zahlene Enterprises is serviced by Dobbs Equipment, Miami, Fla.
