Welcome to our Winter FOCUS
FOCUS magazine, first published in 2003, was inspired by a team of Kawasaki dealer personnel, satisfied customers and an eager Kawasaki marketing team who wanted to bring compelling stories, tips and industry news to wheel loader users throughout North America. Fifteen years later, our goals remain the same, our focus renewed with the global vision of Hitachi.
Hitachi Construction Machinery Americas Inc. (HCMA) is reshaping the loader market. Read about how after lengthy research and collaboration, KaMin Performance Minerals purchased the first Hitachi wheel loader in North America. Being first has paid off and they say the ZW 150-6 exceeds expectations. You’ll find these insights on page 3.
When Roxboro Excavation, a key player in construction and engineering work in Quebec and Ontario, decided to add wheel loaders to their fleet, they looked for equipment that could handle frigid temperatures, was versatile, comfortable, easy to operate and met new emissions standards. The story about their rigorous evaluation process begins on page 6.
Join us in reading about this year’s 2018 Parts and Service Seminar held at Callaway Resort and Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia. The event marked the introduction of the new HCMA organization to dealer parts and service managers and announced new programs including the new ConSite Rescue Team program. Details about the event’s content are found on page 9.
We have built a reputation of engineering and manufacturing excellence resulting in today’s Hitachi wheel loaders. We hope you enjoy this latest edition of Focus as we strive to deliver the relevant news and information you have come to expect.
