Due to a large volume of projects including Crossrail, Thames Tideway, Shafts etc… Flannery’s have invested in the all new Hitachi telescopic clamshell excavators which have a digging depth of 21m. With these projects all working in such built up areas, our customer was looking for an excavator which could dig at 22m and load a lorry.

The Hitachi ZX210 with telescopic arm was the machine that was picked to do the job. Traditional methods of deep digging would not allow the machine to load the waiting lorry, but the ZX210 would. This improved productivity and saved on double handling of material.
