Plantworx debut for Hydrema articulated dumptruck
Equipment manufacturer to show 912E ADT along with 922D unit and MX14 wheeled excavator
THIS year marks the 30th anniversary of Hydrema in the UK and the heavy equipment manufacturers will be showcasing their Danish roots at Plantworx 2015 with a Viking-themed stand.
Established in 1985, Hydrema (UK) Ltd are a wholly owned subsidiary of Hydrema A/S Denmark and have been supplying high-quality earthmoving equipment to plant hirers and contractors nationwide for the past three decades from their Yorkshire-based headquarters.
Among the products on show and making its first Plantworx appearance will be the 10-tonne 912E dumptruck (powered by a Cummins EU Stage IIIB engine) that delivers 20% more torque and 7% more hp than its predecessor model. Also on display will be the popular 22-tonne 922D 6x6 articulated dumptruck and new MX14 wheeled excavator.
Tim Wadsworth, Hydrema’s UK sales director, said: ‘The 912E is known for its superior handling and robustness, making it suitable for plant hire. We sold our first dumptruck in the UK market in 1985 and 30 years later the Hydrema 912E is the best selling compact ADT in the world.
‘We have plenty of optional features available, including our Multitip designed to increase productivity, as well as a range of LGP machines to compete in the tracked dumper territory. We also offer chassis cab versions of our machines capable of being fitted with lime spreaders, tankers, bowsers and all types of attachments for new niche markets.’
