Outstanding operator feedback for the Hidromek Backhoe Loader

Melbourne-based CivilworX Constructions was established in 2004. The company offers a range of services including residential and industrial developments, earthworks, road construction, drainage works, water and sewer works, and wetland constructions. The company has an extensive equipment fleet including excavators, compactors, backhoe loaders, wheel loaders, graders, rollers and various trucks.

In September, CivilworX took delivery of its first Hidromek HMK102B Supra Backhoe Loader.

"CivilworX opted for the Hidromek Backhoe Loader due to the outstanding value proposition and uncompromising build quality, safety and performance", says Joe Noonan, territory manager at Onetrak.

We spoke to Luke who is operating the machine to hear his feedback.

Luke, the machine’s new operator says that he loves it.

"It’s actually a lot better than the previous machine I was operating," he adds.

"It’s easy to jump in a Hidromek even if you haven’t operated one before. The controls are on the armrest and all the switches are on the centre of the dashboard, so everything is right in front of you – easy to reach."

Luke says that the Hidromek is a lot smoother to operate and the fuel economy is better than other machines that he’s operated. The cabin has been made bigger to increase operator comfort and has air con to combat hot Australian temperatures.

"The Hidromek has dual screens so I don’t have to twist and turn around in the seat between digging and loading to see the screen," he adds.

"I’ve been operating it for three months now. We’re currently doing general civil works and I’m mainly loading trucks, AG pipes and digging conduits.

 "Performance-wise it’s powerful, has great ride control, great hydraulics and hydraulic side-shift.

"My favourite thing is the dual screen set-up. Another great feature is the lights on the steps. They are very handy when you have an early morning start and it’s dark.

"The service support from the dealer has also been very good which is important when you have a new machine."
