2016 Hitachi Technicians Competition

Hitachi Wheel Loader -5 MET Recycling

The ninth annual Asia & Pacific Technician Competition will be held in Singapore later this year. 

Service technicians from Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia will all put their professional skills to the test when they compete against each other. 


The 2016 Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia Technician Competition recently took place at our Sydney branch to find our representative for Singapore. This year we had a number of entrants with seven service technicians all competing for the chance to represent Australia. 

Service technicians from Melbourne, Launceston, Perth, Emerald, Sydney and Mackay had their product and technical knowledge skills tested with a series of practical and theory based scenarios. 

This year’s competition also included an overview on the ZX210-5 and ZX135US-5 excavators. 

Thank you to Andrew Arnold, Ryan Puckey, Mark Sutczak, Stephen Francis, John Vidler, Piotr Pisarek and Chris Rousefor taking part in this year’s competition. 

Ryan Puckey from Somerton won the Best in Theory category, while Piotr Pisarek from Revesby took out Best in Practical. Andrew Arnold from Mackay was the overall winner and will now represent HCA at the Asia & Pacific Competition. 

We wish Andrew the best of luck!
