FULL STEAM AHEAD: Heard Demolition has taken delivery of a 28 tonne Hitachi Zaxis for its work on large-scale industrial dismantling projects. The Essex contractor is using the ZX280-3 to pull down the Paxman diesel works in Colchester, which first started as a steam engine manufacturer in 1865.

Heard also has the first of the new Hitachi 45 tonners in the UK on order.
