Hitachi Connected Technology, in conjunction with Leica Geosystems and Engcon, held its first Dig Day last week.

The two-day training event, held on the 11th and 12th November, drew more than 150 participants to the Leica Geosystems Training School in Whitchurch, Shropshire. Some of them are pictured above.

Visitors were given a hands-on experience with a range of Hitachi machinery, all equipped with Leica machine control and Engcon tiltrotators, providing an opportunity to test all three products at once.

Also on show was the UK’s first KMC600-7 demolition excavator with 34-metre telescopic high reach, three quick-release arms and an integrated dust suppression system.
