In conjunction with Leica Geosystems and Engcon, Hitachi Connected Technology hosted its first Dig Day at the Leica Geosystems Training School on the 11th and 12th of November.

The event attracted over 150 construction professionals across the two days and gave visitors a hands-on experience with a range of machinery, all equipped with Leica machine control and Engcon tiltrotators; an opportunity to test out all three products at once.

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

Jake Walley, HCT Operations Manager for HCMUK commented “Our first HCT Dig Day has been a huge success. Working collaboratively with Leica and Engcon has allowed us to offer customers a chance to try out the range of products in an un-pressurised environment where there were many experts on hand to answer any questions.”

Neil Williams, Heavy Construction Industry Director for Leica Geosystems commented “It has been a pleasure to work collaboratively with HCT and Engcon to host this Dig Day at the Leica Geosystems Training School. Being able to offer customers the chance to get one-on-one time with specialist staff from each manufacturer is invaluable”.

Andrew Badham, Sales Manager for Engcon commented “It has been a successful two days working with HCMUK and Leica hosting our first collaborative Dig Day. These events offer a unique opportunity for our customers to get a hands-on experience with a range of products.”
