New EC226 suits us perfectly!

A new Hitachi Zaxis 225 and the new tiltrotator EC226 from engcon. It’s obvious that Lasse Hellsén, machine operator at CMB Svenska, is very pleased at the controls.

”Oh yes, this combination is absolutely fabulous! The tiltrotator tilts more and feels stable and versatile”.

CMB Svenska in Njurunda is owned by Magnus Blom. At present the company has six machines – three excavators, two wheel loaders and one dumper – and five employees. Its main activities are the operation, maintenance and improvement of roads within Sundsvall’s operational area.

”We have engcon’s tiltrotators on the three excavators. Over the years we’ve also tested other manufacturers’ products, but we’ve now decided on engcon”, says Magnus Blom.

”We have an excavator with a six year-old EC15 which has seen 11 000 hours of service. The only thing we’ve ever had to do on that one, was to replace a hose. I think that deserves a pass mark”, he continues with a slight understatement.

New EC226

A while ago CMB Svenska sold its Hitachi 135. Faced with choosing a new excavator, we wanted a larger machine with longer range,  but was at the same time versatile enough for roadworks where barriers and traffic make life difficult. The choice fell to the Hitachi Zaxis 225 with short counterweight.

”When we looked at tiltrotators we thought the EC20 felt too small and the EC30 too large. As it happened, the new EC226 was being launched, so that really was the one for us. In this type of work you don’t want one kilo too many on the stick. EC226 suits us perfectly”, says Magnus Blom.

And it’s this combination that a contented Lasse Hellsén uses along Route 330, between Indal and Bergeforsen. On this 17 km long stretch of road there’s ditching works and preparation for resurfacing.

”It’s terrific!” Both machine and tiltrotator are absolutely fabulous!”
