Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) will present an extensive range of equipment for the construction, utility, forestry and logging, recycling and waste handling, and mining and quarrying industries, highlighting Tier 4 / Stage ? models at Intermat 2015.

The showcase line-up includes the world debut of excavators and wheeled loaders that will answer customers’ needs as well as environmental requirements. The most significant change introduces diesel engines compliant with Tier 4 / Stage ? standards to reduce exhaust emissions and to improve fuel economy. The wide range of updates also cover cabins, featuring a dashboard and an instrument cluster, hydraulic control and exterior design.

HHI will showcase a total of 27 construction equipment machines and two forklift models on its booth in hall 5B. Among eight mini / midi excavators in the operating weight from 1.6 tons up to 8.0 tons, the fully remodelled R17Z 9A will be launched in the first quarter of 2015 and the R25Z 9A is newly fitted with a more powerful Kubota engine.

Hyundai has changed its heavy line excavators into the HX series by introducing Tier 4 / Stage IV compliant machines. All-new HX series ranging from the HX220L (22 tons) to the HX520L (52 tons) will be easy to identify and recognize by their new design.

The all-new R160W-9A wheeled excavator will expand the market coverage for Hyundai dealers around Europe, especially in France.
