Hyundai World

Premiers to Boost

Worldwide Sales

I

t is not many years since the Korean group Hyundai

started out on distributing its range of construction

plant and equipment to markets around the world.

Their growth plans took a hit with the economic reces-

sion that impacted on every manufacturer. However,

their latest financial figures indicate that they have re-

covered and are now forging new customers with some

spectacular success.

At a presentation by the company at Bauma, it was

said that sales to Europe have increased from 9% to 14%

in the past 12 months. With similar success in North

America.

The target is for an increase of 15% in the next year.

This is an ambitious target strengthened by the large

stand where there were, amongst the array of equip-

ment, no fewer than 16 world premiers including seven

hydraulic excavators, 4 wheel loaders and 4 forklift

trucks.

HW140 and the HW210 Wheeled

Excavators

The new HW range of wheeled excavators are

engineered for both on-road and off-road mobility and

to deliver performance and flexibility in a wide range of

applications.

Both models are fitted with an eco-friendly, high-per-

formance 6 cylinder Cummins QSB6.7 engine, which

ensures both excellent fuel efficiency and high power.

The HW140 has an operating weight of 13,880 kg

(30,600 1b) and is up to 15% more fuel efficient in truck

loading and levelling in comparison to the 9-Series of

machines.

The HW210 has an operating weight of 21,200kg

(46,740 1b) and boasts up to 20% more fuel efficiency

in truck loading and levelling.

The HW Series three-stage power mode ensures the

best performance in any operating environment from

heavy load work to light load work.

The ECO Gauge feature enables consistent economic

operation through constant info on the machine’s op-

erating state. The ECO gauge level changes colour with

the engine torque to improve the fuel efficiency level.
