a Honda petrol engine is now finally available on the


Building on the success of its predecessors with diesel

engines, Hinowa has decided to develop two new petrol

versions of the HS701 model.

Ever since its introduction, the HS701, powered by

a Kubote diesel engine, has proven itself among other

tracked models by its compactness and load-bearing

capacity, which have rendered it extremely practical and

reliable under all operating conditions.

The new petrol power units have completed the

HS701 range, which have traditionally been equipped

with diesel engines. There are two versions available:

• The 8.4 HP version with a pull starter, which is de-

signed for rental customers. This is available with

either a standard or self-loading dumper bed, which

allows the material to be rapidly unloaded.

• The 11.7 HP version with electric ignition, available

with a self-loading dumper bed; this series comes

equipped with a hydraulic oil heat exchanger in order

to prevent overheating, and is particularly suitable

for heavy duty and continuous use.

Advanced technology and


Just because a machine is small and compact does not

mean that it lacks the durability and reliability demanded

by customers. The Minidumper HS701 line has always

distinguished itself by its performance and safety.

A width of just 758 mm makes it a suitable tracked

model for working in confined areas and enclosed spaces

of just a few square metres. The highly manoeuvrable

unit is capable of quickly and easily moving through

narrow passages, including gates, doors and


It also has a perfect weight distribution. In fact, the

three rollers present on each side of the tracked under-

carriage enables the HS701 to easily handle various types

of terrain and slopes with exceptional stability: the tracks

also reduce the pressure exerted upon the terrain, thus

reducing the load at the base and preventing damage

to the underlying surfaces, even during the most critical


An addition feature with this model is that it is fitted

with a hydraulic expansion system that increases the

distance between the tracks from 758 mm up to 1058

mm: a solution that improves the unit's stability and

traction on all types of terrain, even under the most

adverse conditions.

With a load capacity of 700 kg, it can quickly and

easily handle any kind of material transport and debris

removal operation. The dumper bed on the petrol model

is available in both the self-loading and standard ver-

sions, while the diesel model can even mount the hi-tip

dumper bed, with a load capacity of 550 kg.

Being an entirely hydraulic system with simple and

intuitive controls, this tracked model offers exceptional

precision and manoeuvrability.

In order to render its use even more practical, the

operator can choose the speed based on the type of

terrain: slower for uneven surfaces, and faster for level

surfaces, including gradients up to 15°.

The models with diesel engines have maximum

speeds ranging from 2.2 km/h to 3.3 km/h, while the

models equipped with the new Honda petrol engine are

capable of reaching 4 km/h. Operating weights are up

to 735 kg depending on the configu-

ration. Typical

Hinowa, an industry-leading manufacturer of tracked

vehicles, has now launched the new TX2500 Transporter

model with a 3-way dumper bed.

The previous version, with a swivel dumper bed, has

already proven itself by its speed, stability and transport


Today, the new version with a 3-way dumper bed

offers an additional function that allows for tipping to

be performed on three sides, with the automatic opening
