Hitachi Construction Machinery started selling its vehicle dismantling machine in Japan in 1982. For more than 30 years since then, we have been actively serving our customers as a partner in the field of vehicle dismantling both in Japan and overseas.

Hitachi ZX200LC-5A was developed for dismantling purposes such as vehicles and its parts, using clamp arm which is holding device fitted to undercarriage between both sides of crawler, exclusive use of attachment equipped with grapple, additional counter weight, arm reinforced, exclusive use of hydraulic piping and cab guard considering safe operation. The machine will help to make the dismantling process faster as it is expected that 20 vehicles will be dismantled each day.

We are honored to be a part of this project to create a model recycling system to contribute to a more environmentally friendly Thailand.
